CHRISTMAS PARTY BLOG HOP

The time has at last arrived! The Christmas Party Blog Hop begins today. 


Just follow this link to add your blog to our Christmas Party!  The fun is being hosted by Jessa at A Holiday Haven.  Love her blog!!! 

Now, on to the party!  If you're into retro or vintage, the following should give you some ideas! (OMG-Oh, my goodness!)

I thought I'd show you some of the Christmas photos of my family and me as we were growing up, once we left home, and the families that we have surrounding us now.

                         THE BEGINNING

Mom and Dad in upper left hand corner. 
This card was from Dad to Mom on
their 1st Christmas together.


Mom and Dad at Grandma's when
they were "courting."
This card was from Mom to Dad
that first year together.
Both scrapbook pages were made
by my very own talented sister, Kathy!

Christmastime at Grandma's,
tho' I wasn't born yet! How about
that black and white television??? 
This photo was taken 
Christmas 1952.
 Mom and Dad's wedding picture
is on top of the TV.

Presents all unwrapped! 
My Aunt Sally gave either Grandma
or Mom a copy of her graduation picture. 
Looks like bathrobes and watches
were the thing to get. 
Dad got a hunting knife (I wonder
if he ever got that bear that was
chasing him?),
and Mom got pens (she can write
a really mean letter!).

Next installment will feature...ME! 
You're gonna just love it!   ROFL!!!
