A Christmas Surprise!

Santa's elves arrived a little early this year, and they looked alot like my dear Aunt Linda & Aunt Jean!





Wait! They ARE my Aunt Linda & Aunt Jean ~ my dad's two sisters. You'll never meet two more fun-loving people. They are as funny as monkeys. Just a few minutes in the same room and you're rolling on the floor, belly laughing!

They made the most wonderful gift this year for every member of our entire extended family ~ a Lester family photo calendar. Wow! Each month features a different sibling along with their children & grandchildren & even great-grandchildren! Each month also has an inspirational Bible verse. Special dates such as birthdays and anniversaries are recorded throughout to remind us of those that we don't see very often but still hold dear in our hearts.

The last page of this calendar says it all, "Our family is a circle of love and strength, with every birth and every union, the circle grows. Every joy shared adds more love. Every crisis faced together makes the circle stronger."

Just beautiful! Thank you, Aunt Linda & Aunt Jean. I will treasure this gift, always!
