A Wonderful Christmas Gift

This year we decided on hand  made gifts for the adults - with either hand made or purchased for the grandsons - that gives Grammy and Grampy a lot of choices.  

One of our favorite gifts was from our  nine year old grandson, Ben

He took photos of his cat Zoe - and made calenders for each family.  Photos and captions - it is a fabulous calendar - we will treasure it forever.











(Lady of Spain is a game they  play while folding laundry - Zoe will hide under a lightweight piece of clothes and her ears make the fabric stick up like a Mantilla)


You miss the narration of the captions by Ben, in different accents - it is a hoot.

Ben is quite good with a camera - but then he's been using my camera since he was 3.

OMGoodness! I absolutely ADORE this! What a creative child Ben is! I laughed out load at most of them - they are all good and so funny! Of course, I expected the pictures to be great ones, considering who grandma is! - but the entire work of art is a real joy. At nine years old, you have lots of fun ahead of you with Ben - he's going to one of those kids who ends up changing the world! I just know it. This is what happens when a family works together to nurture their children in one happy, loving environment! I am so happy for all of you!

What a great calendar/gift from creative Ben, the captions are precious! I love to see kids do things such as he turns in some great school projects too.
That sweet Zoe is a healthy looking kitty, bet she's a fun pet to have around the house.
Happy day JoAnn.
Hugs - Mary

What a cute calendar. I agree with Julie, it should go on the market. - Margy

Oh, I love this! This is the cutest calendar - I would buy one of these! How clever Ben is, both with his photography and his wit! I think he takes after his Grammy! xo Karen

I love Ben's calendar, the pictures of Zoe are marvelous. Zoe is the picture of my cat Cheetah, a feral kitten that we rescued along with his sister Oreo several years ago. My favorite picture is "Touchdown" How cute is that. I love family pictures, they are so precious. Wishing a Happy New Year to you and your family.

Sorry, My favorite is "Interception". I don't know why touchdown stuck in my head, I think I am still foggy from the flu we have had this week.... Candy
