Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories - December 13 - Christmas Photo Memories

I've fallen hopelessly behind but decided to make it up by publishing 65 years of Christmas pictures. I'll try to put them in some sort of order. It won't exactly be wordless but the captions will be brief.

Christmas 1951. Joel's 2nd Christmas and John's first. No pics from
1950 as Mom was in the hospital with John, born the day before.

Christmas 1952, Julie's first Christmas

Christmas 1954, my first Christmas

Christmas 1955
Christmas 1956, Paul's first Christmas

Christmas 1957

Christmas 1961 in our new home in Minnesota, Jill's 1st Christmas

Christmas 1963
Christmas 1964, Myrl's 1st Christmas
Christmas 1965
Christmas 1968, adding Carol, born 1966
Christmas 1971 or 1972, adding Phillip born 1970. Both grandmothers
are also in the picture as are my parents and my aunt and 2 cousins.
1978 - we celebrated Christmas a few days early as Mom, Dad and
the younger kids went to Florida. Three grandkids are now in the picture:
Jason, Jeff and Sarah. Josh made an early arrival on Christmas Eve that year.
Christmas 1986 - Girls only, added Nicole after her surprise
visit Christmas Day the year before
Christmas 1986 - Boys only, added grandkids Jordan & Adam
Christmas 1990
Christmas 1993
Christmas 2005 - Just the grandkids and great-grandkids
Christmas 2006 - eight of nine Puncochar siblings with Mom and Dad
Christmas 2013 - eight of nine Puncochar siblings with spouses
Christmas 2013 - most of the grandkids and great-grandkids
Almost Christmas 2015 - me with two of my granddaughters
and one very jolly old soul. 

It's amazing to see how the family has grown over the years. What a blessing to have them all in my life.
