Merry Christmas......

Did anyone miss me or wonder where I was?
Laptop would not charge and has been in the shop.

So I wish all my friends a Merry Christmas 
Here are some little pictures of my brother and I from the 1960's. I thought you might enjoy the trip back in time.
I do not get to be with any of my family this year but so blessed to have my husbands family

my brother actually looking at me like he loves me

a few years later, hhhmmmm?
that's better!
The year I got Chatty Cathy
our stick horses!

My Ragged Andy

4 generation picture with my Mom, Grandmother and Great Grandfather
I still have the bells hanging in the window

Apparently I did not want to sit on Grandads lap!
much happier on cousin Mary's lap

back at my Maternal Grandparents

Oh the year I got my sink with running water!
By the way....I hate to do dishes!

this may be my favorite of my brother and I

the boots my tell you what I go this year.

My cowgirl outfit!
Tammy doll car and formals for Tammy, Pepper and Mom

In 1966 my Grandparents moved to a new house, and here came the aluminum tree

I know what is in there, my easy bake oven!
Yes I still have it in the original box in the basement.
I look tall for 10?

snow was on the ground in 1969

Merry Christmas

Yes! I missed you and hoped you were ok. I am having problems with my computer also so I can relate! Thank you for sharing these beloved pictures! I especially love the last one. Ann, you should have Christmas cards made from it!
Blessings,
Lottie

What a wonderful trip down Christmas Memory Lane. Cute pictures of you and your brother. Loved your cowgirl outfit. I have a table cloth much like the one on your 1969 snow out the window picture. Glad you made it back to blogland in time for Christmas. Thanks for stopping by. Merry Christmas, Ann.

Welcome Back, dear friend. . .you've been missed!!!
Oh, my goodness!!! So many similarities. . .it could be scary!!!
Annie Oakley outfit and red cowgirl boots for a Christmas Past for me, too! Silver (aluminum) tree, Red plastic bells hanging in the window, life was so much easier then.
Merry Christmas!!!

Oh Ann, these photos are so great. I could see myself growing up with you, lol. I got a similar cowgirl outfit one year. We all had the same sad looking Christmas trees, didn't we? Before they were shaped and trimmed like they are today.

I missed you! Dang computers.

Merry Christmas! Pam

Hi Ann!
I noticed you'd been quiet since Thanksgiving. I didn't come and comment because we've been pretty much sick since then. ARGH. Finally out and about now. So sorry you had computer trouble. I'd go half insane if something was up with mine!
You lucky! You have the most wonderful family photos, I'm so envious.
Wishing you a wonderful Christmas with those dear to you and much joy in 2015!

Sally xoxo

Merry Christmas!

Ann, these photos are absolutely precious! Love, love the cowgirl outfit!! Old photos are the best! Unfortunately I don't have a lot of Christmas photos of when I was young. Daddy died when I was only 9 months old and for quite some time mom didn't take many photos. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
hugs,
Jann

I wish I had such a rich record of my Christmases past, Ann. Such wonderful memories for you. Thank you so much for visiting the Garden Spot. I have always enjoyed your kind comments. More so I enjoy reading your posts and admire all of the hard work you give your genealogy and family history. I do enjoy seeing the old photos shared with such love for your family. I look forward to the new year and continued sharing of comments. Happy New Year, Ann.

Oh Ann your photos are so sweet! I was born in 1958 and allot of your outfits and toys were very similar to what I wore and played with. ; )
Thank you for commenting on my Lady Bug folding chairs, it is very easy to redo them so I look forward to seeing what you do with your chairs.
Happy New Year and I look forward to following you again in 2015.
