Personal Notes:
Submitted by Marci Powell. The Shepherd family used to gather every Christmas morning at Grandpa and Grandma's house for as many sweet rolls as you could eat. I don't know how many Grandma used to make but with 15 grandkids, 10 of which are boys, I know it was a lot. After breakfast we would all sit down for gifts. Always a brand new pair of knitted slippers.
