It must have been a struggle to provide a merry Christmas for five and later six children. Here’s a line up with us showing off our presents. It looks like Owen has a new shirt, or is that a pajama top? I can’t figure out the designs on his shirt. My dress appears to be right out of the package. It’s a pretty plaid, but I don’t remember the colors in it now.
Cindy is cuddling a doll that seems to be wearing a clown costume. Is that Susan or Karen sitting in the background? She has a teddy bear, possibly a homemade one.
A number of handmade stuffed toys fill the new little red wagon. Mom must have spent many hours sewing those toys.
On the left is the small Christmas tree. It’s sitting on the cedar chest that I think Mom’s dad made for her or is that the one that our dad, Clyde, made?
