Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day a few days late! My family celebrated on Saturday night with dinner and dessert. My sisters and I went in on a gift for her mom and got her this lovely Toss tote:
In school, we made these gifts for the moms in our class. I have to say that my kids were overly excited to give these to their moms. We first made to flower pens, then painted the pots, added a bit of ribbon and wah lah!

Here is what our classroom looked like during the project:


And here is the finished project:
Isn't this the sweetest note:I've posted quite a bit about school stuff...don't worry there are only 3.5 weeks left!
Then I'll move on to a new topic. :)

Toss has the cutest designs and I bet your mom loved the tote that you and your sisters got for her.

The project that the children at school did is so sweet!

I know the kids just decorated the pots, but I love the flowers! I could be wrong, but are those flower pens? I've seen them before, and that's what they look like. Either way, I'm sure their moms loved them!
