Christmas 1971 – Dennis Street
I was in Germany when this picture of my brother Dave, son Eric and his wife Kathy was taken. In fact, I was just days away from giving birth to Greg, depending on the day the camera clicked. The back of the photo just says December 1971, and Greg was born December 27, 1971.
This picture was taken at my parents house in Tumwater on Dennis Street, and behind everyone in the picture was one of our little backyard harvested trees. I’m not sure which one of us, my brother or I, got the angel that sits atop this tree. My parents have both passed away and as in many families the keepsakes were divided.
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?
