We recently celebrated Mom's 60th birthday.

I helped Little Miss and E make handmade vases for their Memere. I used empty frosting containers, measured a piece of plain white paper for the kids to decorate and attached them to the container. I also laminated the artwork so if it got wet, it wouldn't run. The kids went outside armed with scissors and made their own arrangements for Memere.

The manner of giving is worth more than the gift.
~Pierre Corneille, Le Menteur
You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.
~Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
What is bought is cheaper than a gift.
~Portuguese Proverb
