The Best Christmas Present Ever

The best presents are the presents that are from the heart... They cannot be bought with money... Last Christmas, my mom asked me what I would like for Christmas... She asked me if there was anything she had that I would want.... I think she may have thought I would ask for a piece of jewelry... or a collector's plate... or something else that had monetary value.... but none of those things came to mind.... The only thing I could think of was a picture... A picture of her and my dad when they were dating... She was 15 and he was 20... I have always thought my mom was so beautiful in this picture and my dad was kind of a hottie..... She had this picture in a picture collage and I have always loved it..... Now I have it on my bookcase for all to see...

Isn't she beautiful?

  6. You're not supposed to be encouraging dating at fifteen especially when we have soon-to-be 15-year old's. Okay, maybe yours are sooner to 15 than mine but Kelly! What are you doing? :) LOL!

  7. Oh Sew Good - I so do not encourage dating at 15 - I don't encourage it at all - lol.. that is something I am SEW not ready to deal with. (my kid is boy crazy enough - Lord, save me) The reason the picture is so dear to me is that my dad passed away a little over a year ago and I love the innocence of this picture..
    Love to you always.

  9. It's a beautiful picture Kelly. I was just having a little fun with you as always. :) The only dating I encourage right now is in the form of Larabar's. They are made with dates, fruits and nuts. :)

  12. Great idea for a gift; it gets rather ridiculous, year after year trying to come up with the perfect gift, does it not?

    For my folks this year, I did a photo book of some of the previous years best pictures. They loved it. So much better to them than disposable stuff.

    Thanks for stopping by the blog; you are always welcome there, and beware of lurking vampires in your area. Should I see any over here today in the middle of my ice storm, I'll send them your way:)

  13. What a beautiful photo. Don't you just love old pictures like this? I'm with you, this is better than jewelry or anything else she could have given you!
