Precious Christmas Gifts from the Heart~

I was absolutely thrilled to receive this handmade calendar from my mother for Christmas! I just adore anything that someone has taken time to make for me with their own hands. My mother put in hour after hour and literally months making calendars for each of her children (three of us) and with all the excruciating back pain she has been in just brings tears to my eyes. (please say a prayer for her if you think about it that the doctors will be able to help her soon) These are a few pictures that are in the calendar~ My parents when they were dating:
This of course is me and it is for the month of March since my birthday is in that month.
My sister and I...weren't we so cute! LOL
I have always LOVED this picture! It is of my sister, brother and I kneeling at the bedside and my brother is peeking!!!! My mom made our nightgowns and little caps that year ...so precious to me!
Memories of days gone by that shall forever live in my heart. We grew up in the most wonderful and loving home ever and my parents are the worlds greatest parents! I love them sooo much!! Enjoy!
