Our Christmas Card Book: 1968 page 02
I have been in a total loss of mojo mood for the past couple of weeks . . . so to rattle my bones out of it, I thought that I would begin yet another Christmas book project! This year when we send out our Christmas cards it will the 48th card we have sent since our wedding in 1966. For years, I have been meaning to make a book for each of our children containing each of our cards . . . so here is one of them . . . a start isn’t it Mr. Mojo? I’m starting this book fully aware that I’ve several other Christmas book yet unfinished . . . but, plugging along at each of them when the mood strikes me! This 1968 card was the 3rd one we sent to friends and family . . . the second while we were living in Germany. I am doing some digging to find a few Christmas photographs to go along with cards one and two . . . I have the greeting cards, but the photos must be in our trunk load of slides!! I am probably going to make this book where it can have pages added as the years roll on and Christmas cards are added one by one.
Journaling: Aunt Velma sent $5.00 so I could buy Michael this German teddy bear, Ha Hee & Papa Pat sent the rubber squeaking Santa, Christopher Nass gave you the bathtub fish and Santa brought you a new high chair. The photos were made in our living room and also at the Nasses’ house which was on the German economy. Christopher was born in May & Michael in July of 1968 . . . we spent a lot of time with each other while living in Germany and still see each other occasionally.
