One thing I know I won't be able to buy before December is my Grandparent's Christmas present. Originally I had planned to buy them a canvas from Canvas On Demand. When I received my 16x24 canvas from Canvas On Demand everyone loved it, and my Grandma told me she was jealous of it and wanted one of her own. My canvas is of one of my favorite wedding photos of Hubby and I, but I decided my Grandma needs one of either the family or one of her and my Grandpa.
I tried to contact all the family to get them together for a photo without my Grandparent's knowing, but it's just not going to happen. I thought Thanksgiving would be a good time to do it, but everyone is going to be split for Thanksgiving dinner. My sister and aunt won't be there, so I can't exactly leave either of them out of the photo. I opted to go with a photo of my Grandpa and Grandma, but I don't have any updated photos of them together.
I called my Grandma this morning and told her I wanted to take some updated photos. She said not today because she's feeling quite chunky. lol. I joked that I'd get her some Anoretix and try again next week after she's dropped a few pounds. I told Hubby I'll just take a photo of them on Thanksgiving, order the canvas, and hope it's here by Christmas.
Honestly, I don't think I'll have to worry about it arriving on time. It took right at a week for me to get mine. I also have some great coupons Canvas On Demand sent me. I was planning on ordering her a smaller canvas, but with the coupons I can upgrade to the 16x20 without paying extra.
I really can't wait to give her this gift. I know it's going to be something she's going to love and cherish. I have a feeling it'll end up over the mantle in the living room.
