I was born right before Christmas so the pictures from my first year were pretty much a one month old staring at a tree.
|Yup, Mom is smoking right above me.|
Christmas 1975 and I could actually sit and behave!!

The pictures I have available are limited so the next one is from the 80s. Does anyone (who is in their 30s) see the Vic 20 in the background? As an adult, I learned Mom wasn't happy we got a computer that year. We didn't have a lot of money but we were always happy.
|Rocking the fro! Or am I?|
|I was making it easy for them to get rid of me!|
Christmas usually meant that Mom's family came to town. I am not sure when that stopped and I still miss seeing Uncle Dave at Christmas. He was fun!
|Lisa, Mom, Uncle Dave & I. pre-1984 but not sure when.|
Christmases are different now as we are all adults but some things are still the same. Lisa still puts a Marshmallow Man she made in kindergarten on her family tree. We still give her kids ornaments every year for the tree. But instead of all being together - we Skype. Thanks to technology, we can at least SEE each other on Christmas day.
Merry Christmas to all of you and enjoy your families!!
