Dining with our digital grandchildren

I didn't mention to anyone that I wanted a digital picture frame.
I had looked at them but I just could not justify buying one for myself.So I was surprised when we received one from Dennis' daughter Kim and her husband.

Kim and Ryan chose some really good pictures, that they of course took. I think pictures are always priceless, but especially when you are a grandparent!

I have it set for now in our entry way so who ever comes to our door will see it. The past 2 nights we have had it on our kitchen table so we can watch the pictures as we eat.

Makes it feel like that our grandchildren are dining with us, but without the cleanup.Although they are WELL WORTH the clean up.
Here are a few of our favorites:

A week or so before Christmas, Good Things Utah, called Kim and asked if she would come back on their program. This time they only gave her 24 hours notice! It was a segment on making gifts for Christmas without spending lots of money. Kim and her sister Kris are the queens of cute and creative. Take a look at Kim's short clip from Good Things Utah.

Thank you Kim and Ryan!!!
We are already enjoying this gift so much. A great way to show off our grandchildren, too.

Great gift...with lots of pictures. I knew Kim had photos from Park City but wasn't sharing them. Now I know why. She was saving them for Christmas. They are so good. I especially like the one of Rachel and Robbie eating ice cream. That's how Grandpa eats his...all over his shirt. It tastes better that way.

Jacob got me a digital frame for Christmas, and I can't wait to load it up and put it on my desk at work!

You are right about my Moonbeams: Oyer, Hutchings, and Fletcher! To me, they are just a distant memory, so it's amazing to me that you still have contacts with those families. I often wonder how my life would be if we'd stayed in Fresno all these years.

I wanted to get my mom one of those but don't know where to get one or how they work etc. That was very nice of them to get that for you. It's almost like you are there.

Hi Jill, Today my computer will let me in to comment!!! We LOVED all the photos. Also, I was able to follow all the links on the internet site for Kris. What a fun, interesting, and creative life she lives. Your dad asked me if she was a stay-at-home-mom and I said I thought so, but just keeping up with all that's on the internet site seems like a full time job. Dennis really does have some amazing kids. Love, Dad and Susan

Kim is so very talented! I looked at the link and what awesome gifts! You guys have some very talented daughters. I have been hoping for one of those digital picture frames but I guess I'll have to get it myself. I love them!! Kim and Kris have such cute children, and they all look like they could be siblings instead of cousins.

Kris said...

Those are some great pictures, Kim! I hadn't seen some of those yet. I may have to come over and snag a few! :) Jill, this was so kind of you to post.

Kim said...

I'm so glad you liked the gift. You both are people that treasure photos so it's fun to give you that. Now we can just keep sending you photos to add to the disc that goes in the frame. You'll have a never-ending supply of photos to dine with. :)

I don't know how I missed this post, but I loved the spot on the You can make this link. Dennis's daughter is so poised in front of the camera. You must be so proud.
