Bienvenido, loyal reader. The following slide show of Christmas pasts will probably have little interest to many of you but please indulge Bruce and Mary in a little Christmas sentimentality. And they will certainly understand if you take a break on this post.
We’re still at my mom’s place and these are my sibs, Scott, Mark, Neil and Cheryl, missing is brother Paul. Mark is an insurance agent. Cheryl is a research scientist and prof at U of Missouri. Scott was a chef and Neil was a partner in a computer tech company, sadly they have both passed on.
And here we are with my Dad, Ken, in the Elim Home in Princeton, MN.
Mary’s family is populated by gamesters. This is Mary’s sis, Sue and Mary, Helen, and Mary’s mom Harriet.

Skipping 2006 and ahead to Christmas 2007, at our St. Cloud house (I back up all my pix, now) Joe is enjoying a beer with his favorite uncle, Neil.
This is Bryan, Sam’s future wife Annah and Sammy. You should have seen the look on Bryan’s face when he met his freshman room-mate for the first time. It was Sammy, sporting a bright pink spikey-hairdo.
It’s 2008 and Christmas at the family cabin and this is the lull before the storm.
It’s post snowball fight and I think Helen has the right idea.
We’re celebrating Christmas 2011 with dinner at Las Farolas on beautiful Paseo Montejo, the Champs-Élysées of Mexico. Boy, been a while since I used that old chestnut.
Thanks for visiting, gentle reader. Bruce and Mary would love to hear your Christmas stories, so please share. Hasta proximo Domingo!
