"This year, I'm planning to make this calendar for my daughter's grandparents. They live far away and only get to see her a week or two of the year, so I'm sure they'll love it.
Since we're pretty camera-crazy in our house, we always have pictures of our kids from each month of the year. I've chosen a photo from each month, printed out calendar pages, and will mount each month's picture on the coresponding calendar page. I'll probably have mine laminated and spiral-bound at an office supply or stationary store.
It's a great way to give the grandparents a practical gift that lets them enjoy seeing their granddaughter as she grows. Plus, it gives them a little something extra to show off!"
