It was great to see everyone who was able to make it to lunch at Hometown Buffet Christmas Eve. If you weren't able to come, you missed interesting conversation about the power grid, courtesy of Jason and Tony. Oh, and not to mention, my cranky tired baby who didn't want to visit with anyone else. Sorry 'bout that! Otherwise, a good time was had by all, and we'll plan to do this again next year, although we'll plan it more in advance, and likely a couple weeks before Christmas so it won't be so hectic for everyone.
Becky... loved the Christmas pictures. The top picture of Grandma and the 5 kids says it all... one of the kids is pointing a (fake) gun at himself, and the look on Grandma's face is priceless! I thought Christmas with 3 kids was a task!! I'm not sure if Grandma did "toy parties" back then, but I like the assortment of gifts in the pictures- there's a stroller, a gun, a guitar, one kid has some reindeers... it reminds me of a family party in the garage! Gosh, they started so young!
Anyhow...Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to y'all, especially Rick who is the newest blogger to the website. Looking forward to keeping in touch with everyone both in person and online in 2008!

I knew that the 1st picture was Bill and his new wagon...Dad eventually repainted it with a brush and I got it for Christmas about 3 years later. :-) As for the next picture, I think that that is Bill, Barb ,me, Ken and Marge at the last Christmas on 2nd Street in Canton.
I'm not sure but I think the next picture with "Pet" when she was a pup, is the first Christmas on Georgetown Road. The baby is Jake. We moved to Geo. Rd. on New years eve or New years day, I can't remember if we got the pup when we were still on second street, a week before we moved. If thats the case then the baby would be Margie. That may be the only picture of "Pet" where she wasn't pregnant!
Wow! What a trip down memory lane!
So where is everybody else that should be in here? I miss all you guys, especially during the holiday season. I'll check back later.... Rick

Now...somebody, anybody, everybody has to get me up to speed on who all these babies are! :-)
Won't waste much time typing now incase this thing doesn't work. Talk with y'all later.

Look closely.. Now we all know the real history and origin of the "Charlie Brown" Christmas tree.. Not to mention the beautiful decorations. Check the christmas box upstairs "under the thing dad built" at Grandma's; same icicles, same garland, still using them. The curtains in the background, maybe it's just me, but I'd be willing to bet my christmas goose that I wore a dress of the same material in a school picture. And yes, it was hand-me-down from Theresa, Grace, Margie and Barb. (and mom said she made it special for me, hah.) The wrapping paper on the gifts below the tree... You guessed it still upstairs, "under the thing dad built" The sweet, innocent little boy in the wagon? You see if you can figure out who it is !
Coming soon to a blog near you.. My tributes to christmas present and future. Merry Christmas to all!!
