My Favorite

 This may be my favorite Christmas gift this year. It is a calendar our daughter-in-law had made. Each month has either a photo of our grandchildren, or a photo of their artwork! Here are some of the pages.

What a great gift that is. That would be one calendar worth keeping once the year is through.

I think that calendar will remind you of exactly what that quote you posted feared it may not do. I love your granddaughter in the field of sunflowers. What a precious gift.

I just love your calendar. What a fun gift that you can treasure every single day all year long. I hope you are feeling much better. It is never fun to be sick, but at this time of the year? Awful. I am wishing you and yours a lovely, peaceful, and healthy New Year.

Beautiful family and a beautiful gift.
We get a calendar or should say have gotten a calendar for the last several years from younger son and family. I love it and cherish it all year. this year they ran out of time and we didn't get one..I was so disappointed. We got a nice gift but not THE GIFT..
Happy New Year and I hope you are feeling better.

Couldn't think of a more special gift Ginny. I have said it before but you have such a sweet family :) Love the sweetie in your header shot also.

What a WONDERFUL gift!! My daughter always gives me a calendar each year too, but hers includes photo's only. I would love to see their artwork as well. I will have to give her this hint. Your granddaughters are precious!

What a wonderful and treasured gift, Ginny. A very creative idea that your daughter-in-law thought of. Love the lady with the heart. Such a cute calendar. I usually get the Mary Engelbreit calendars every year, but this year I got a plain calendar with BIG boxes for the days, and you can decorate the boxes for special holidays. Love that quote you shared also, and so true, isn't it?
