We usually had a lot of friends or relatives coming to our home on Christmas day, but in 1978 we did not have any visitors at home. Our children opened their gifts and we took our official Christmas pictures together. It was unusual, but very nice. Our dog, Princess, was very happy to be part of our celebration and we had the official picture taken with her in it. That was one good feature. As we did not have to worry about how to arrange a lot of people in the picture, the dog could be included. The tree we had that year was one which we cut down on our Fall Branch property. What do you think? These pictures were scanned from slides, clearly some of them were washed out quite a bit and very tough to regenerate back to normal!.
