Grandma's Mother's Day Gift

This year for Mother's Day, my mom said she didn't want anything. She just had her birthday in April and we sent her something from us girls and she thought that was enough. But then, my sister had a brilliant idea. She had each of us sisters take a picture of our kids (or Molly in Megan's case) holding a letter in the word "grandma" and email the photos to April. She printed them all, found a beautiful frame, and voila! Now each year for Mother's Day, we can update the photos and she can enjoy watching the kids grow. (click on the picture to see it better)

Brilliant.

Okay, that is absolutely perfect! I love the fact that 'Grandma' has 7 letters, and there are 7 kids each in my and my husband's family. One letter for each family picture!! So cute! Thanks for the awesome idea!
