Ghosts of Christmas Past

And here are more scanned photos from Mom's old albums...

My maternal grandparents and my great-grandmother (Grandma's mom - in the green dress) Christmas 1971:

My parents with my oldest brother - Christmas 1959:

This is the whole darn brood of us at Christmas 1971...  The tot dressed like a marshmallow peep?  That's me.

And my own little peep messing with the tree at my folks house on Christmas Day 1999:

Aren't holidays fun?  So many years, so many memories.  Hold onto whatever memories you can, share them whenever possible, and dust them off fondly as the years go by. 

Happy Holidays everyone.  =oD


  1. You make an adorable Peep! I will keep this in mind as I celebrate this year.
    Have a great one,

  2. LOL! What fun photos! You make me want to dig through Mom's albums.

    Merry Christmas!

  3. Those photos are great! The ones from the 70's look strangely like the photos of my family. Same hairdos, same paneled walls. So funny!

    Merry Christmas to you and your family

  4. Wonderful photographs and wonderful advice!
