Aunt Teen was a fixture in Great Grandpa Weaver’s life and then on until her death in 1934 she was in contact with his widow, Great Grandma Weaver, and his son, Grandpa Lee Weaver. Grandpa Lee always spoke fondly of Aunt Teen. I chose this card as the first of the Christmas post cards for the blog since it is one of my favorites in the set. This is the first day of Advent 2016, 107 years after the card was produced. It is with this card that I will be closing off the first volume of the printed Blog Book of Grandpa’s post cards. I will be continuing with the Christmas Card set through Christmas Day and then switch over to the New Years cards.
