Our Last Christmas in Elizabethton, TN

This was our last Christmas in Elizabethton, TN. Mom & Dad had bought an old farm house with barn and some acreage along the river. Dad had totally remodeled the house and it was finished for this Christmas. We are in our new den for this 1967 Christmas. But we moved to Spartanburg the following February, 1968. I think this is the Christmas when I got a microscope and that little toy microscope was fascinating to me. Notice the strung popcorn on the tree? Yes, we really did that. We did the cranberries too.

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!

Christmas At Papa's

We always went to Dad's parent's farm house for Christmas with his family. Grandma either had a cedar tree that Papa had chopped down or a silver tree with the colored spotlights pointed at it. I only have this photo of us at Papa and Grandma's. This is Aunt Ruth with Elaine and I. This was in the mid 1960's but I'm not sure what year. I'm thinking around 1965-1966?

Sharon and Her First Snowman

Daddy was a TVA Engineer and they moved him all over Tennessee and, once, to Mississippi. They had a pink and white trailer in order to move us. Mom wanted us to have familiar surroundings no matter where we went. Anyway, we moved to Iuka, Mississippi and spent a winter there. They had a rare snow there and this is my first snowman. I made this scrapbook page of my first snowman.

Brett's First and Second Haircut

Our little grandnephew, Brett, is getting his 1st and 2nd haircut in these photos. So I did this digital scrapbook page of his first haircuts. This happened last year but I'm just now getting around to creating the page.

Welcome Scarlett Alyssa Reese

My cousin, David, and his wife, Candace, had a beautiful little girl in October. They named her Scarlett Alyssa. Here is the newborn scrapbook page I did of her newborn photos. I haven't seen her in person yet and she's already nearly 2 months old.

Preston Lights Up Our Life

My cousin, David, and his wife, Candace, have the cutest little boy named Preston. They had this great photo taken of him with the Christmas lights. I did a few things to the photos to make them more dramatic and then did this Christmas Lights scrapbook page.


Our nephew Lee had some good photos this year and I wanted to make him a special page. So this is year in summary scrapbook page!

Redneck Yourself

There is a website at Buckwear where you can "Redneck Yourself". The results were so funny and gross! So I made a joke scrapbook page.
