Chris received one of the neatest gifts for Christmas. No, it wasn't incredibly expensive, but it is priceless. His mom and sister-in-law found some very important pieces of American history and put them in shadow boxes....WWI ration stamps and books.

I had never seen a ration book. I've heard about them and read about them, but to actually see them made history even more tangible. So...real.
A few weeks ago I mentioned on Facebook that my grandmother said she looked like her grandmother when she saw a photo of herself. Thanks to a cousin, I now have a picture of my great, great grandmother Holliday. It's a treasure.
