Beginning when Margaret was born, every year we took Christmas photos around the time of the Thanksgiving holidays. It was generally a big event which meant that we all had to take some time out of our regular schedule. Both children had to choose some “good” clothes for the occasion. Then we had to decide what background to use, which was usually difficult! Then I would get my equipment ready. Over the years, we used many different cameras, some taking slides, some taking color negatives, which we then had to take out or send out for professional development. It usually required some time before a decision could be made in selecting a picture for our Christmas Card of the year. In 1976, we had only a short list of pictures, two, and I can list both below. Which one can you guess we chose for our Christmas card? Ha, it’s not as easy as you think!
