Mother's Day Traditions

Jerry, my husband, started a Mother's Day tradition about 10 years ago. Before then, Jerry had always taken us out to eat on that special day. One year, after waiting two hours to be seated at the restaurant, Jerry decided he would start cooking for all the moms in our family. It was such a hit that it became an enduring family tradition! This year, we shared this tradition with 20 family members and friends.

Jerry, Owen, Lee, my brother, brother-in-law and his brother all pitched in to help prepare and cook. They don't let the mom's do anything, which all the moms love! We feel so special and honored.

Are you wondering what they cooked and how it looked?

Grilled pork chops
Baked potatoes
Fresh steamed spinach
Macaroni Salad
Deviled Eggs
Sister Shubert's Yeast Rolls
Sweet Tea

Owen, my oldest son, started another tradition. He makes a stepping stone with Maddie and Morgan's hand or foot prints every year on Mother's Day for his wife, Casey. The girls help decorate the stepping stone with colored stones and chunks of glass. Aren't they just too cute? Maddie, the oldest, is going to be nine on May 14th and we always celebrate her birthday on Mother's Day as well. Do you have any special Mother's Day traditions that you would like to share with us? We would love to hear about them!


  1. I find this tradition should become a festival one day as it is about Mother.looking forward to it.

  2. Mother's day is one of the special day in the family. Great to spend this with them.
