You'll notice some years are missing, that's because there are children or other family members in those photos, so I can't put them here.
1992 All the kids were still at home, mostly, the two oldest ones often stayed with boyfriend/girlfriend for days or weeks. See the blankets on the couch? Hubby taking a well earned nap, after supervising the decorating of the tree and placement of wrapped gifts.
1998 this is the only photo I have from this year that doesn't have assorted grandchildren in it.
2003 first appearance of Harvey Banana and the puppies Vanilla and Fudge, they're stuck in the tree.
I'd been sleeping on the fold-out couch because the bedroom was just too hot that summer.
2010 my last Christmas in that unit. The purple is still there, but the blue is gone.
I have a great photo of my 2008 tree, but can't show it as there are photos of the kids behind it.
2011 the all gold year, my first Christmas in my current home.
