Melinda's First Christmas

Our youngest sister, Melinda, was 4 months old for her first Christmas. I was 4 yrs old and Elaine was 2 yrs old. We were living in Elizabethton, TN by then. We lived in Elizabethton for 4 yrs before moving to Spartanburg, SC when I was 8 yrs old. At this Christmas we obviously got matching dolls from Santa. I also got this Fisher Price wooden radio. This may be the Christmas that we also got matching cradles for the baby dolls. But that was our big Christmas! Not much compared to children of today but we didn't know any different and were always very happy with what we got. We always had wonderful Christmases with our families. I don't know why we were looking so solemn in this photo. Little Brett always has that same solemn look too. In fact, Elaine looks so much like Brett in this photo!
