Family Heirlooms

Family history is very important to Paul & me.  This is why we chose family names for Nolin.  We also have some special items that we will pass on to Nolin.  Today my step-father brought me something that I had when I was a little girl - a small rocking chair.  Turns out that this rocking chair was given to me on my first Christmas in 1982 by my Papa & Grandma Birge (my mom's parents).  They gave one to every grandchild on their first Christmas.  My mom & step-father refinished my rocking chair & had it recovered for Nolin.  Now the rocking chair will be hers to use & love.  I hope that one day she will pass it on to her child.

Last week we took pictures of Nolin in a biscuit bowl that was once Paul's Great Grandmother's (Big Nannie).  After Paul's Great Grandmother passed it down to Paul's Grandmother (Nannie), she put legs on the biscuit bowl & used it as a magazine holder.  This is another special item that will belong to Nolin one day.

These are just a couple of the special items that we want to pass on to Nolin.  There will be many more...

  1. So proud that Nolin has these things in her life to remind her of times past. Never let her forget them....I know you won't.
