Advent Calendar-December 4, 2012

Ackkkkkkkkk it’s December 4th and I have not started my cards yet!  Seems I am getting slower at getting them done every year!

I really don’t know how far back sharing of Christmas Cards goes in our family, but I do know that my parents and grandparents sent out Christmas Cards. I think the ones I like the best are those that contain photos of our friends and family. Even if it just the kids :D

 

 

 

The Butler Boy’s okay so it is only two of them :D

Warde Jr. would be the young man and I believe the little man would be Pete.

My guess the photo was taken in about 1957 as Bill would have been little.
(feel free to correct me :D )
Warde Jr. is my Nana’s nephew.

This is the Bouman Family

They are as follows

Becky, Freddie, Bobbie  front
Bob and Gloria back.
Gloria is a niece of Nana’s as well.

There is a note on the back of this card.

We were glad to get your note and the account of the wedding. I didn’t know you had any cousins in England.
This is a very busy time for us, but then I guess there isn’t any time that is slow. I’ve been out every night the last two weeks.

We received some slides from Marge and finally got to see what Philip looks like, although the last ones were taken in April.

It’s been unusually cold here but more like Christmas weather.

Merry Christmas to you both

Love, Gloria

Last but not least are three of the William’s Girls

Susan, Debbie and Karen
daughters of Bob and Jane Williams

Jane is my grandfathers niece.

I was very happy to find these among photographs in my grandmothers belongings.  Puts some faces to names, and some cute little faces to grown up faces that I know.

I still get photos of families and I love getting them. Folks didn’t get family photos from us, but I did when the kids were in school send family members their school photos. I believe the school photos were appreciated, for they have been found in more the one family photo book!  Smile! :D

MERRY CHRISTMAS

and

Happy Hunting!
