    First thing I do after unwrapping is look through each month with my wife and daughter so we can ooo and aaahhh over the photos. Best is when you have included a photo from long ago that sparks great memories of the time or the event.

    I love this idea, Sara. I think it’s smart and useful to put birthdays and other special occasions right on the calendar too. I bet the kids love seeing it throughout the year and remembering good times. It’s so fun to see your kids cutting and assembling!

    What a great idea! This year I finally made a photo book for my husband’s side of the family, including family events we had all attended. Just from doing that I realize how tricky it is to include pictures of everyone (and his side of the family is small!) so I’m sure it’s no mean feat for you to include a large number of people in your calendar. But how fun and meaningful!

    I love gifts like this! If this is what Christmas were really about for all of us, I would be so much more into the season. (And am, since I made it more like this for me and our family.)

    I give my parents a photo calendar of my kids each year. Like you, I include family birthdays and special days. I always have to make sure I include exactly the same number of pictures of each child. (Yes, they count!) Because I’m only getting 1, I splurge a little and order them from online photos companies. They look so nice! (Before these were available, I made my own.)

    Loved seeing how you make this work for you. Thanks!

    What a great idea! I have seen this done where there are only pics of one family and their kids (cute but I don’t need to see them everyday of the year) – but making it full of pics of the entire extended family makes this really something everyone would love to get and use! It looks like it takes some effort too! Great idea!

    I like this better than mom doing it all on her computer. I need to think of ways, low cost ways, to get my fourteen year old more involved in gift giving.
