CHRISTMAS 1976

My Story Continued:

At Christmas time it is always nice to celebrate with family. So we used to travel to Sydney to be with my parents and Aunt. Sometimes they would come to Brisbane.
Before we left we visited Santa and spent the hot days in our pool.
 This year Sonya wasn't frightened of the man in a red suit and a big white beard.



 Carol and Sonya in their best dresses, which Grandma made.

Fun in the pool with dad.

 A Christmas card for Grossmutti and Grossvati

Dinner time then to bed before we go to Sydney tomorrow to see Grandma and Granddad.

 At Grandma and Granddad's house in Loftus, Sydney.

Dad and Aunty Ada opening Christmas presents on the patio.

 The girls got new umbrellas but there was no rain.

Aunty Ada plays dollies with the girls.

  1. Not sure why we terrify children with a visit to Santa but we all do it.
