It's the time of year when everyone is thinking of their family and planning special occasions to spend time together. You know what's a real stinker?? When half of your family lives on the other side of the country. I grew up in a family of 4 kids, and currently two of my siblings live in California while the other half of us live in Maine. So, they are LITERALLY on the other side of the United States.
So I've been trying to think of a special gift those nieces and nephews of mine.....
and I came up with it.
My nieces and nephews are still young enough to not remember family living in other states very well. The best way to fix that situation is to have a photobook of all of us who live in another state, so that we don't seem that far away in person. I think it's the perfect gift for young kids.....and I plan on making it fun. Lots of goofy pictures, funny subtitles, and pets included too. I think it will help make us all feel a little closer, even though we're thousands of miles away.
Shutterfly has a video called Shutterfly Photo Books: The Best Gift Ever and it's about the reverse of what I've been talking about.....in their story, it's a child who gives a photobook to his Grandmother. This gift can work in so many ways.
