Merry Christmas - A Look Back

It's a bit early for this, but I'm posting our Christmas picture (from 2006) anyway. I've been having a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit and into the mood for shopping. That's all a thing of the past now. By noon today I had finished my Christmas shopping and was playing Christmas music and getting into cooking. I mailed off the last of my Christmas cards and parcels and now I'm free to enjoy the next 10 days leading up to Christmas. So, here's a Merry Christmas in the form of our 2006 Christmas card, beautifully photographed and designed by our middle child, Sara, at her photography studio/photo gift shop (First Impressions Portraits/Photo Gift World).

I've been planning for a while to do a post with pictures of me and my sweetie so here's us from this year down to 1969.

2008 - At Emily's wedding

Winter 2001

1999 - Niagara Falls

1991 - Looking good!

1971 - about a month after we were married.

January 1971 - a couple months before we were married.

1969 - Just a couple of kids - 19 and 20 yrs. old.

A lot has happened since this picture was taken 39 years ago. It's been a great ride. We're looking forward to getting old together now.
