The Best Gift Giver Ever

My youngest daughter is a shopper..she obviously got this ability from someone else..perhaps from her Aunt Jan..she is a shopper. My Mother is a shopper too.. I do like to shop just not where everyone else does..I can spend hours in an antique shop, and I love the thrift stores and garage sales.

Jen always strives from one year to the next to out do herself..she is an overachiever. She also likes to see me bawl..then she knows that she did great. I think she starts plotting and planning immediately after Christmas how she is going to be the best gift giver picker outer the next Christmas. She is also sneaky. A few months ago..she sat at my computer and said "Mom, I need some photos to make cards, can I have some of yours? " Sure, I said..it was for a fundraiser at the school… little did I know that she was going to take one of my favorite photographs..and have something made for me.

I took a series of photographs one beautiful summer evening. Far Guy and I took Chance for a walk down at the lake. Chance was on lead.

No one was around so we took him off lead..he is usually well behaved off lead..he played in the water awhile and then he began to pose for me. The light was fading fast..it was one of those moments that I was glad that I wear crocs in the summer as the dog and I were both in the water. Some of the photos turned out just smashing! He loves to pose..and he is getting pretty good at it too! Some days he is really on!

I captured his reflection perfectly. I was so pleased.

Chance must be famous now… his photo became a flag! Jen wins the best gift giver award once again…I tried not to cry when I opened it..but I immediately recognized the colors and those ears… forever on a flag. You woulda cried too if it happened to you! :)

    That is a totally wonderful gift. Crying would be allowed in this case. Great style your daughter has, finding gifts that matter to the recipient.

    Excellent gift!

    Would you be willing to share where the rest of us could get our own photos made into an outdoor flag?

    Do you think Chance recognizes himself on the flag?

    It was your party (gift) and you could cry if you wanted to.

    Perfect gift.

    so maybe you do appreciate your Chance… I don’t know… I still think he would like it in Sauk
