Today I am posting on somethings that my husband received of his father's after his mother passed away in June 2008.These are wonderful keepsakes to keep the memory of his father alive in his heart.We are so proud to have these items in our home for the children and grandchildren to see.It helps them know who their grandfather was. This is a picture of my father in law,it sits on the table in our front room.

Here is a Bible that was presented to my mother in law from the local VFW after the passing of my father in law.He was a war veteran.

It is a beautiful bible,this page is the presentation page.

It was given in this wonderful wooden and leather box.

This is my father in laws year book from the army,I never knew the made year books.It is just like a school year book.

Some of the pictures in the year book show them in training.

He was in the 5th Armored Division.

The year this book was created was in 1953.

I am taking part in the Pay it Forward Challenge on Grammy's Blog.I was the second to comment on her post and was so hoping I got to take part in the challenge.
So here is what the Pay it Forward Challenge is all about,I sure hope some of you will join in.It will be fun to send handmade gifts around blog land.

The first three bloggers to leave a comment on this post will receive a hand-made item from me. Also, those same three bloggers promise to post this challenge on their own blog. This means they will be "paying it forward" by creating a handmade gift for the first three bloggers that leave a comment on their blog. Now, doesn't that sound like fun? All that hand-made love going around in the blogosphere?This part is fun, too... the gift can be anything that you choose to make.How about it? How about joining in on the fun with us?Here is a chance to make something with your hands and send it with your heart.
