Our Mother’s Day Tradition

I love that we have holiday traditions in our family. I especially love our Mother’s Day tradition. In our house, Mother’s Day dinner consists of ice cream sundaes. Instead of the ancient mother comment of “you can have ice cream after dinner”, ice cream is dinner. Obviously, we refer to it as Mother’s Day Sundae. My mother has scooped up (get it? hahaha) some great ice cream dishes over the years and I received some wonderful vintage spoons from my aunt that went well with the theme!






We break out every topping we love and build our own sundaes. Some are simple, some are not. All are yummy. Here’s some of the creations this year:





Of course, a great part of tradition is that as soon as we’re done licking our colorful ice cream bowls clean…we start planning for next year! I love traditions! Happy Mother’s Day!


About finefrugality

I am a wife, mother, business owner, farmer, foster parent, retired probation officer and so much more. :-) I love to save money any way I can. I just don’t see the sense in handing my cash over to someone else when I don’t have to. I coupon, I grow and can food, I reuse and repurpose items, I scour thrift stores and during the warmer months, my Saturday mornings consist of yard sales and our local farmer’s market with my husband. I have organized local meetings which include coupon swaps, barter clubs and swap meets. Here is where I begin to share this life with the rest of the world. This is Fine Frugality. Because being frugal is not only fine. It is FINE.

    What a delicious tradition! And the expressions on your faces are pure delight. Fun!

  2. Great tradition! I might use this one next year too!

  3. I LOVE this idea! I already marked it on my calendar so when next year rolls around, we’ll be able to partake. When I told Jon, the ultimate ice cream lover (he would go to Knoebels just to get ice cream), he suggested that we do Mother’s Day part 2 next Sunday. I might give in.
