My Family Booklets-my Christmas Eve Family Gifts

2016-12-26-cms-projects-3This last week I’ve been working like crazy on these My Family Booklets for our 3 kids and for President Lewis.  Every year on Christmas Eve we have some special family time where we gather together and read the Christmas Story, and every year I prepare a special family gift for each of the kids.  This year I’ve been working on these booklets for Christmas Eve.  As many of you know, it’s a big project.  Each of these booklets has between 50-60 photos of our family and our ancestors, along with their stories and genealogical information about their families.

Here’s how they looked as I finished them.  Adam Lewis:2016-12-26-cms-projects-5Claire Lewis:2016-12-26-cms-projects-4Aaron Lewis:2016-12-26-cms-projects-6John Lewis:2016-12-26-cms-projects-7The kids’ books have this information:2016-12-26-cms-projects-82016-12-26-cms-projects-92016-12-26-cms-projects-102016-12-26-cms-projects-112016-12-26-cms-projects-122016-12-26-cms-projects-132016-12-26-cms-projects-142016-12-26-cms-projects-152016-12-26-cms-projects-162016-12-26-cms-projects-172016-12-26-cms-projects-182016-12-26-cms-projects-192016-12-26-cms-projects-202016-12-26-cms-projects-212016-12-26-cms-projects-222016-12-26-cms-projects-23

    Elder Moser requested one of these in his birthday package, asking me to fill in the basic information and he would handle the rest. I included little pictures of each individual, but only as “prescribed.” I love what you have done–going outside of the box with more! I sent his package yesterday–which is a good thing I did. I think I would end up copying what you have done and taking a few more days to send off the package. haha. You should show all of your missionaries this at your next conference. Well done. Great ideas!
