What a cute photo you shared!  Here's the only one I could quickly find. My two sisters and I, Christmas morning have a tea party. I'm pretty sure this was 1965. Merry Christmas!

Oh, I wish I had a vintage photo handy.  Can't say I have many but I'll scrounge around.  It may be next year, though.  LOL  Love the picture. Thank Paul for the serenade!

Oh, how fun, John! You have reminded me that I REALLY need to get to scanning the giant boxes of photographs that I have in my spare bedroom closet!!  Love the shot of you and your brother - how adorable!

I hope you and yours had the merriest of Christmases, John!

Merry Christmas!

Thanks to Kathy for sharing your post!  I'm at my daughters, so not in AZ.  I'll scrounge for something.  Not sure I have ANYTHING from Christmas as it was always quite hectic at Christmas with 6 kiddos, 4 of which were boys.  I have a vivid memory but no photos of it.  Love your photo - that's a great shot!

Very cute. Now you have me thinking as I don't have one photograph from any holiday. Birthdays were the thing in our home for lots of photos. As an adult, I take all the photos.
