Remembering a Christmas Eve of the Past

 

I found this old photo of me and my sisters on Christmas Eve a very long time ago.  Mother had made us each those Christmas tree skirts and Dad wired them with real lights powered by a battery hidden in the pocket.

That is my sister Judy standing on the left and my sister Pam in the middle and me on the right.

We always spent Christmas Eve at our grandparents house and that is where this photo was taken.  I can even tell you what we had to eat because grandma always made the same thing for Christmas Eve, her version of sloppy joes.  

My sister Pam texted me a few days ago asking if I remembered those skirts.  So I dug around in the photo box a found this photo.

Sweet memories Sharon! Your mom and dad were very creative and must have had fun that Christmas to join their efforts for a memorable Christmas to this day.

Excellent photo! Having light-up clothing must have been pretty novel in those days. It's funny that both of us posted "Christmas-at-the-grandparents" photos today!
