Flashin' Waaaay Back!

Yes, we will not talk about how far back this flashback is, but lets just say that my baby brother is now 46 years old and he wasn't a year in this picture. Notice the beautiful aluminum tree in the picture, I was around when they first hit the Christmas scene. And you could not have one of those unless you also owned a color wheel (a device that made the tree appear to turn gold, red, blue, or green), what modern technology! I'm looking at the gifts and thinking, "Did someone get a clothes hamper for Christmas? Seriously?" Our tastes were definitely much simpler then!

This is obviously Christmas morning, because at our house - no gifts were opened until then - oh wait, we got to open ONE on Christmas Eve, usually a game to keep us occupied for the evening. Christmas memories are the best!
Here my sister, Debbie, my baby brother, Greg, and I are proudly modeling our Christmas duds. Someone should have talked to the girl in blue and clued her in on sitting like a lady to avoid embarrassing pictures like this one :)
