Christmas Past

1952 My First Christmas, Mom and me.

Mom, me, sister and brother; Mom was such a creative present wrapper.

Dad, set the camera on a tripod and jumped into the picture at Grand Dads house, 1956.

Fork, Maryland My uncles house "Walnut Hill" loved those Flexible Flyers!

Dad chuckled when he took this, how neatly lined up all the snow boots were!

Christmas Past
A Christmas Poem by Carice Williams
Each Christmas I remember
The ones of long ago;
I see our mantelpiece adorned
With stockings in a row.
Each Christmas finds me dreaming
Of days that used to be,
When we hid presents here and there,
For all the family.
Each Christmas I remember
The fragrance in the air,
Of roasting turkey and mince pies
And cookies everywhere.
Each Christmas finds me longing
For Christmases now past,
And I am back in childhood
As long as memories last.
