Roxy had a fantastic Derby hat this year made from a new MudPie bow and her leftover Easter bonnet.
I wish I had the foresight to take a picture of our homemade Mother's Day gifts. My inspiration came from this coffee can planter:

My plan was to adapt the coffee can into a terracotta pot and use Roxy's hand prints with the quote. After not being able to locate the pots I wanted quickly, Roxy and I decided to make a t-shirt and still use the quote. I saw this t-shirt idea:
Rather than making a butterfly, I thought we could use hand prints for the bloom of flowers, make stems/leaves on the flowers and then write the quote from the coffee can I loved so much onto the shirts.
Once we got started, I decided to do foot prints as well. In the end, each shirt had each hand and foot print on it and then the receiver's name on it (i.e., Mongo, Naye and Gigi).
Roxy had so much fun sticking her feet and hands in the paint and making the t-shirts. We giggled the entire time! My girl definitely loves her crafts!
Since we've been MIA, Roxy's also became really wrapped up in her princesses, even more so than before. For Mother's Day, she wanted to buy me a "pretty blue dress" so I could look like her and 'Rella. How sweet! And, Mongo made it happen!
