As I mentioned in my earlier blog, Mother's Day is the day to let mom know how much you appreciate her. Some moms like flowers, some moms chocolate. (Cheap Mother's Day Flowers)(Amazing Chocolates) All moms like a little piece and quiet.
Along with peace and quiet, I love pictures of my kids. I could look at photo albums all day long. I think I sometimes prefer the picture more than the actual kid. The picture doesn't talk (or scream or whine) and the picture doesn't mess up your house. So here are a couple of products I came across that I thought were a knotch above the traditional photo album (hint, hint).
The digital picture frame by Digital Spectrum MemoryVue MV-800 Digital Frame is the ideal way to display your digital photos and video clips. With an eight-inch high-quality TFT LCD display, offering 640 x 480 VGA resolution and video playback up to 640 x 480 at 30 frames per second, this frame is sure to impress your friends and family.

Whatever you get mom, the most important thing is to just make sure you let her know that you appreciate everything she does for you.
It took me until I became a mom to realize what a mom really does for the family. Hope it doesn't take you that long.
