Yesterday I received a handmade Christmas card from my sister, Susan. She has always had a talent for creating greeting cards even when she was a kid.
Here we are all dressed up for Christmas 1961.
Mary, age 5, proudly displaying her new Bible, baby Susan, 2 months old, me, age 9, wearing pearls and sporting a very curly permed hairdo.
Inside of the card . . .
Yes, that's me with another perm showing off my new Barbie game. Mary, hair in pink sponge rollers, and toddler, Susan, trying to grow a head of hair.
Precious memories of Christmases past . . .
dolls, transistor radio, board games, cedar Christmas trees from a country pasture, candy and red velvet cake from Grandma Ruby's kitchen, doll clothes made by Grandma Minnie, church programs about the baby in the manger, Christmas caroling in the cold, crunchy snow, the warmth and security of a loving home . . .
Thank you Susan for stirring up wonderful Christmas memories.
