This is a photo of my older brother and I around 1963, a dear friend gave me the frame the photo is in, isn't it adorable? I was such a girlie-girl back then. I ALWAYS got baby dolls and spent hours playing Mommy to them.
Doesn't my brother look thrilled in this photo?
A few years ago I confirmed with my father that they used to put up the tree and put the presents out all on Christmas Eve! Can you imagine that? I don't know how my parents did it back then. They probably just fell asleep when the little munchkins woke up to see what Santa brought them!
