We received a package from Mom today. It is ALWAYS a special treat to receive a package and we excitedly strolled to the post office. (We would have received this a few days ago if I had understood the woman who called here. I thought she was calling the post office. What she was actually saying was that this WAS the post office calling. I told her that she had the wrong number. Understanding the grammatical endings to words opens up a whole new level of communication. Oh, brother.)
Anyway this is a picture of my family taken at a Christmas gathering at my grandparents’ house in Glendale, Ohio. We would go there for Christmas dinner each year.
That’s my grandmother seated in the middle of the picture.
People tend to comment from time to time that our family is fun-loving. Maybe a little nuts. Certainly fun to be around. We surely don’t take ourselves too seriously.
The apples didn’t fall far from the tree.
Note that the three sisters are wearing their matching dresses, probably Christmas gifts. And the guys are all wearing ties. We don’t see this too much these days…
(Janet: Did you cut your own bangs just prior to the holidays that year?! Just had to ask, heh)
