Christmas Pictures Through the Years (Part 2)

This is a Christmas picture I especially treasure. My mother loved to gather her three grandchildren around the piano at Mark and Kim's house and sing Christmas carols. I think this is such a sweet picture of Natalie, who is singing her little heart out. Brock, too is singing along. But John, oh John, he was not at all happy about singing that night. I think early adolescence was rearing its head. This was made in 1994, shortly before his eleventh birthday.

He looked a lot happier about eating with his cousins. Come to think of it, he still looks this way any time food is mentioned. :)

In 1995, we, along with Mother, got Natalie her first American Girl doll, Samantha. I don't know who was more excited, Natalie or me.

"Aunt Susan, I have a secret." Lots of secrets before we opened our packages. Oh, the suspense!
Christmas is truly a wondrous time of year, but it is never more magical than when seen through the eyes of a child.
