Instead of traditional cards for our childrens' birthdays, we've been putting together a wee photo book (it's no bigger than 5" x 7") - a year in review, really, to accompany their gift (so far, just Oliver's).
I'm one for consolidating my effort: this mini-album (which I did online here) serves as card AND momento that Oliver can take with him when he leaves home.
Here's the latest:
I enjoy taking photos throughout the year, in a variety of settings and in all seasons. Including a photo of what makes Oliver especially grumpy that particular year is a must of course (this year it was getting his hair cut).
We've got a good collection to choose from for Charlotte's first mini-album...can't wait to start working on that one too!
