This is a little complicated so please bear with me.
Say you are a grandparent with 3 children. One is single, 1 married with 3 children and the other about to marry.
At the wedding of the engaged one various photos were taken. Some with your biological family and one of the grandchildren and new inlaws and some with all your children, their partners and all your grandchildren.
Which photo would you display?
Thank you

Which ever one gave me at my best profile and the one with all my family and DGCS,but really I do not display to many family photo's as I know what everyone look's like anyway,the only photo's up are of DSs in their dress uniform's and DDs graduation photo and they are kept on the study wall.

I wouldn't bother about the inlaws. Just my lot.

Is this a trick question Harry?

Have you got yourself into trouble because you've been displaying the 'wrong' photo, happyharry......? wink

How about one of those frames that hold several photos. or have one frame but make a collage? The only photo I have on display is a black and white photo of my daughter with her pony, and that's only because it's a beautiful photo. Don't really like having photos of my family around; perhaps if they didn't live locally I would.

I do a fairly regular update of a collage of family pictures that I laminate and keep on the fridge door (like a painting from nursery!) Laminated because GC like taking it down to look at all the different people. I create the collage on the computer and print it A4 size. Doing it myself means that I can change it quite often.
As an answer to happyharry, I wouldn't bother about the inlaws especially if they're not likely to see the pictures you have on display. It's your choice and you pick the ones that you like best

I would leave out the inlaws

I shall soon have the photographs of my son's wedding Harry, already decided that I shall display one of the happy couple and probably one of my granddaughter who was a flower girl for them. Not worried about the inlaws etc.

Our daughter bought us a digital photo frame that can show photo's like a slideshow - you need to get yourself one; then your problem is solved!wink
