Christmas 1969

♥Merry Christmas with the Holder's 1969♥
See the kid with the really big mouth ? That's me & not much has changed. ;) It was 1969 and I was 4 years old. That's my brother Danny, sister Sharon & my mom Dot along with me.This was one of my most fond memories of Christmas, getting a doll house. That may have been the best Christmas ever. My dad was self employed, he had a TV/Appliance business where he sold and did repair work. It was a good year for him that year and I remember we got everything we had asked for. I was soooo thrilled with my new dolly and doll house. I must have played with it for years & years. I was happy for my older brother & sister because they got just what they wanted too. And I loved playing with my brothers new Fort Apache set, we played with it for hours & hours. I remember mom got that pink house coat she is wearing and I was so happy for her. When dad took the picture I can remember him telling us to smile big so & as you can see we did so, I thought since I was lucky enough to get so many wonderful gifts I could at least repay him with the biggest smile I could muster up, I do believe had my tongue not been in the way you could see my tonsils !
Thanks Dad & Mom for giving us kids such a warm, loving and very Merry Christmas in 1969 and every year ! Love yall !
Oh, my bangs ? I had a fetish with scissors and cut my hair every chance I could get !
