I may get in trouble for this...

Hey blogland, this is Joys daughter! I hacked into my moms account because I wanted to tell ya'll what an amazing mom I have. I am a newlywed who lives about 2,000 miles away from my parents in a TINY apartment. Growing up in Joys home was wonderful because she always made every holiday special. It was hard for me to move so far away. 
But my sweet mom knew how important the holidays were to me and last week I received TWO HUGE boxes in the mail from her.  Guess what they were??? 
CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS just for me and my husband! I was so excited! 
I wanted to share with you some of the things she sent me:

{A Christmas tree. Yes. She sent me a Christmas tree, and ALL of the ornaments with it. Can you guess where she bought this tree??? The thrift store. It was $6, and it fits perfectly in my home. The ornaments fit my sparkly style exactly. I love the silver and green Christmas theme I have in my little home.}


{She even sent me Christmas hand towels}
{I love all the star ornaments she sent}





{And even a little tree for my kitchen}




{This is only a glimpse of everything she sent.}

So, sorry that I hacked into your account mom, but I just wanted to let you know that I love you and that I appreciate everything you do for me!

It's all beautiful!

Moms are special - no doubt about it! My kids used to hate that I apparently had eyes in the back of my head, but now they appreciate that I can see just what they need at certain times. Sally

You are so lucky,,it's like something my mom would have done. I lost my mom over 6 years ago and believe me.. I still miss her terribly. Kudos to you for cheering for mom. Sounds like she has done a fantabulous job raising her children..

Spymommy said...

As a mom, and as a daughter, I just have to say that you rock Joy! What a sweet and meaningful gesture for a first married Christmas.

Valarie Lea said...

That was the sweetest thing! When my kids hi jack my blog its normally to rat me out on something. :)

Susan S. said...

How sweet and what a wonderful Christmas surprise. However, it sounds like you both are VERY cool and giving so I shouldn't be surprised you always do wonderful things for each other!

Jen r. said...

You're mom is wonderful and so talented!

Thrifty Miss Priss said...

So sweet of your mom to do this....and I KNOW she enjoyed every minute of collecting all those goodies for her sweet daughter. I know it must be so hard to be so far away....but now your sweet mom is right there with you!

Life on the farm... said...

Aww you have the best mom! I used to live far away from my mom too. I enjoyed decorating my own home, but missed my parents terribly! Your post brought tears to my eyes. I know how great it is to get a package from home. Merry Christmas!

LuLu & Co said...

That is the most wonderful gift ever! I have to write that in my journal to do that for my daughters when they leave home (a very long time from now) but I so don't want to forget to do that!!! It is all so beautiful!! and more so with the story behind it all.
Merry Christmas,
LuLu

LucieLu said...

This made me tear up! I think I am gonna call my mom now. Last year when I was broke and 39 weeks pregnant around this time she brought over a tree complete with ornaments for our home since we couldnt afford one.

Such a sweet post!

Gale said...

Now I'm crying!! What a sweet thing to do. When our little girls are small, we never think they will grow up. Then all of a sudden they are teenagers and Mom is supposed to be in the background ...way in the background. All of a sudden they are adults and love to have you around, call with questions (how do you make pecan pie mom) and just generally are thrilled to see you. Bless you daughters..you make us laugh and cry and we wouldn't have it anyother way
