Recreating Photo Memories
Did you know that National Grandparents Day is coming up? This year, it falls on September 8. To be honest, I have never celebrated National Grandparents Day before, but I do like the idea of honoring our parents who are my children’s grandparents.
So as a quick little thing I can send to my mom in honor of this occasion, I recreated a photo memory.
Then, I took a picture with me an Elliot in approximately the same position, in similar clothes. I drew the line in putting my boy in a dress. 🙂
Then, to make them look more similar, I slapped a sepia overlay on them, and ta-da, a cute little way for my mom to remember me as a little one and to remember her new little one, her grandson.
I think this would be really fun to try with a picture of Jacob and his dad with Jacob and Sebastian, so maybe that will be soon in our future.
Overall, this was a fun, simple way to share with my mom a little appreciation for being a grandparent to my children.
