Family Calendar Fun for the Holidays

blog it
This is the third year I'm creating a photo-filled calendar for my extended family. For the 2009 calendar, nearly all the photos were taken in 2008. A few are from Dec 2007 because I had to order the 2008 calendars before our holiday parties got underway.

This year I'm including a few photos of "ancestors" as well. In all, each year's calendar has at least 90 photos; this year's total will reach 100. What a wonderful way to remember special family celebrations all year long and laugh again at funny photos of kids in Halloween costumes, etc. Best of all, the calendar lists everybody's birthday and other special occasions, helping me remember when to send a card or call.

Although I like Snapfish's calendars, there are other sites that do a good job with customized calendars. This Ancestry.com blog entry has lots of valuable "how to" nuts and bolts info for that site's calendars.
