I realize that this isn’t exactly a Christmas photo, but it does show the house and room I remember best when it comes to Christmas. Too bad no one thought to close the blinds so the flash didn’t look like the mother ship was landing in Grandma and Grandpa’s back yard!
That’s our son Greg sitting on his great grandpa Will Yates’ lap, with his cousin Eric Yates standing beside them. You will probably deduce correctly that two different people took the pictures. Dad took the one on the left, and Dave took the one on the right.
We were probably through with supper, and Grandma (with her apron still on) was finally sitting down to rest for a few minutes. My brother Dave and I were having pumpkin pie, and if you look closely in the picture to the right you will see me being rude silly. The pictures would look pretty American Gothic-ish if it wasn’t for me and the mouth wide open and full of whipped cream.
I’m participating in the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories 2010 sponsored by Thomas MacEntee of GeneaBloggers fame. Won’t you join us as we blog about our memories through the month of December?
