Christmas 1960

I don't too many family pages but I made my Mom a binder of memory pages for her 75th birthday. Well that was 7 or 8 years ago now but I make new pages for it instead of giving her cards. Here is this years Christmas page. I was 2 years old and my brother Jeff and Larry are 8 and 10. The pastel of the dog and mouse is done by my mom and was actually hanging on the wall in this photograph. I made a special trip over to my folks house and took some photos of it to add it back in to my page. This photo was one of the first colour photos my dad took and the colour was kind of off. I decided I liked it better in sepia tones. Geesh, look how formal the picture is compared to now a days. I think this will be a hit with my mom. :)
Makes you warm and fuzzy inside.
Merry Christmas everyone!
