    • Dear ladies,
      what are your plans for Mother’s Day?
      How about a present for your mom?
      Any thoughts?

      So far I am making a new necklace for my mom and planning to take her out.  My husband is going to be working, so it will be my mom and my kids.

        • My Mother’s Day plans will probably be just a quite one. Both my boys will probably be working, so me and my hubby will go visit my mon for alittle while then go to Crane, Tx it a very, very small town,it’s about a 20 to 25 min drive from Odessa. My in-laws live there and will visit them for awhile..

          I’m not too sure when my boys will be getting out of work..So it will be just me and my hubby, Quite day..

          As for a gift for my mom, it will be some clothes, I have to really think about what I get her, she lost her eyesight, so I have to be careful on what it is..

          I hope you and your mom have a GREAT MOTHER‘S DAYestatic

        • Irina, my husband’s family (Vagasky, Vasko and Mraz) is from the eastern part of Slovakia that borders the Ukraine (23 miles away).  Is your family from that area or am I really far off with my geography?

        • Hi Carol,
          my parents were born in Belarus, it’s close to Ukraine.  My husband is from Ukraine.  I was born in Kazakhstan.  When my parents got divorced my mom moved to Belarus with me.

        • I’ve done family history research on my husband’s family.  I found it very interesting looking at Catholic church registers (birth, marriage and death records).  Most were written in two or three different languages (Latin, Hungarian and Slovak).  I could follow most of what was written in Latin.  I would not be able to follow Cyrillic.

        • My mom and I are having a girl’s day out tomorrow to celebrate Mother’s day.  I got her a card and a salt shaker and will get her some flowers.  The salt shaker is to replace the one that broke in her good set of china.

          I just got a Mother’s day card from one daughter with three packets of flower seed. Tickled me pink!!!!  

          One daughter will be here for awhile this afternoon.
          Don’t suppose I’ll see anything of my two younger kids.

          I did up a nice container planting for my mother-in-law, thinking she’d be stopping in here this weekend, but we haven’t heard from her.  So, I guess I’ll mail the card and give her the planter whenever we see her next.

        • I’ve always used ProFlowers.com but was disappointed after my mom described the flowers I had sent to her; they arrived this morning.  It was the Growers Choice package and she said only contained 8 buds, not blooms, along with a vase plus a box of chocolates.  The picture showed a vase full of flowers.  I’ll go with something different next year.

        • I got my Mom a chandelier to hang in her gazebo. She entertains alot in the gazebo, and when it is dark outside it’s hard to see who you are talking to. She will love it!!
          For my Mom n law, we got her an adorable pot for flowers that looks like a pair of old fashioned baby boots, a rabbit gazing ball garden statue, and a sign about grandma’s place and homemade goodies for her garden. She will love that!

          Other than spending the day visiting with our Mom’s and quality time with my girls that is all I have planned. Just the way I like it, nice and quiet.

        • Sent my mom a card with money.  Was going to get her a bunch of scratch-offs but figured she could get the ones she wants.  

          My MIL is deceased.  

          HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO YOU ALL!!

          XOXO

        • Sent my mother flowers..I am hanging out with my daughters and going on a boat ride if it does not rain..if it rains we will stay here and play scrabble and watch movies. They are taking me to see wolverine which is huge for them,, not their type of movie..We were going tonight but oldest had to work late so we are going tomorrow.

          I don’t let them buy me gifts, they are gift enough.
