Thursday Thirteen. 13 Christmas Pictures

Thirteen Pictures from Christmases Past

1. Christmas 1955 - My parents (Ruth of Ruthlace) with their first 6 children. That's me standing on the right. The Median Sib Carol has the "praying" hands; Blue Star Chronicles Beth is the baby; Alone on a Limb Terrell is "alone in a picture" as the only boy here. Interestingly, the two non-blogging sisters shown here are both professional writers.

3. Baby brother and his wife Christmas 1977

4. E. admiring the Nativity Set we have used every Christmas since my DH bought it in Israel in 1986.
