My sister, Kristi, is the keeper of many of our old family pictures. But I was so surprised and happy when she presented me with two family picture books as Christmas gifts. I have never tried to make any of these books for myself because I know it is time consuming. I placed the picture books on the Victrola in the Guest Room along with my canvas of Landon and Margaret.
This is the front cover...Mother and Daddy on their wedding day.
The Three Sisters...I am the Big Sister and do not forget it.:)
My Daddy's parents and Grandparents.
In addition to a book about our immediate family, Kristi made a book of our Henderson Family for me.
Our patriarch, Daniel Henderson, my great great grandfather. He was killed early in the Civil War.
My mother's family. Only the sisters are still living. My grandparents and my Uncle Mark have gone on to heaven. My Aunt Joyce is just nine years older than I am and I loved having a "little" aunt.
I guess as we get older, these pictures become more precious and the memories that go along with them become more dear. So thankful for these books that I can share with my grands and tell them about their heritage.
I am off to MOPs this morning. It is our first meeting of 2016 and I look forward to seeing all my "girls".
