This year I decided to fill the house with all those old pictures from Christmases past!
It was a big project, but it was a lot of fun. I sorted through the boxes of old pictures looking for Christmas photos, then I'd hand them to my son. He used our scanner to put them on our computer. All the older stuff was on prints, and everything from the last few years was already on the computer.
Then I sent the whole folder (about 40 pictures) to be enlarged into 5 x 7. (39 cents each at Costco) They turned out pretty good, even enlargements from ancient, tiny Polaroid shots that nobody has looked at for decades!
Somehow we accumulated quite a few frames over the years, and I used all of those, plus we bought a few cheap new ones.
So please excuse my sloppy placement (I'll straighten them out when I'm completely done) but now we have all those great old pictures to look at for the next month! We've got long-gone grandparents, kids opening gifts, cousins, divorced couples back together, the time the tree fell over on me, and my wife during her 80's "Big Hair" phase.
I know one of our kids will count, so we had to have exactly the same number of pictures of each child. This was a challenge, because one of them had a three-year head start! And that's not the one who's going to count them!
Oh yes, we also have many new nail holes in the walls, but that's why they make white toothpaste, right?
