Here is another page for my Christmas Ornament book that brings many memories.


Journaling: Mother taught second grade at Jere Whitson school for many years. Her first year to go back after I was born was in 1952 when I was in the second grade at Capshaw. The manager of the local Kroger’s grocery store had a little boy in her class a year or two later. Mr. Grogan often brought mother discarded display items or fun promotional materials, which were not all given away in the store. At Christmas, he brought a stack of cardboard punch-out angels and choirboys to mother for the children to put together for their class Christmas tree. Mother brought several of the little figures home for me to put together for our tree. When I cleaned out Mother & Daddy’s house several years ago, I was amazed to find six pair of these in a box in the attic already put together from that long ago tree. These little figures advertising Post Toasties cereal hang on our tree today and bring sweet memories of not only my childhood tree at home and Mother’s Christmas trees at Jere Whitson, but also the many Christmas trees from classrooms when I was a child in elementary school.
