OTHER IDEAS FOR MOM

(1) BREAKFAST IN BED OR CANDLE LIGHT DINNER

This is my personal favorite. My kids and hubby have always made me breakfast in bed. It's an awesome way to wake up and start the day. This is a great idea to put a smile on moms face and get the whole family involved.

(2) HOMEMADE CARD

I also love my special homemade cards from the kids, straight from the heart.

(3) CLEAN THE HOUSE OR CHORE FOR MOM

With the abundance of cooking, cleaning, laundry that all families are faced with on a daily basis due to staying home this would be a huge help for mom.  

(4) MAKE A GARDEN

Another great way to involve the entire family and bring mom happiness day in and day out is build a family garden together.

(5) GET OUTDOORS

I know we have all had a lot of family time lately and outdoor time, but take advantage of it.  Take advantage of this time together.  As military families our lives are often so busy, enjoy this down time together.

(6) TELL YOUR MOM HOW MUCH YOU LOVE HER

I know we often tell our loved ones that we love them.  You can never say it enough.  Tell your mom how wonderful she is on Mother's Day, let her know that you appreciate all of her hard work and all she does for the family.  These words will mean more than any gift could possibly mean.  

(7) PHOTOBOOK

Put together a photo book of your favorite memories, PCS moves, family vacations, etc.  These wonderful memories will certainly bring tears to moms eyes. 

Enjoy Mother's Day and your families.
