Random Monday Memories - Christmas 1983

I found these sweet little ornament kits in November of 1983 and I used my children's Christmas pictures from the same year to fill the frames. They've hung on my tree every year since then. So while I was planning my plastic (AKA baby friendly) tree this year I knew they would have to be on it.....just a good bit higher than they usually are!

1. Joe, 2. Katie,
3. Amanda, 4. Kevin

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.
