Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories - Christmas Homecoming

It's the annual Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories!  I've participated the past six years (2009 through 2014), and this year, the prompts and their sequence are the same as the last two years.  Due to some pressing needs to get some other projects done (like gift books for my parents made out of the previous years' blog posts), I'm going to link to the appropriate post from 2014 (which also links to older posts, when applicable) in the prompt title, and add a relevant photo.

The prompt for December 22 – Christmas Homecoming
Christmas 1968, 8015 Sharpview, Houston, Texas.  Clockwise from me (Amanda)
 at the upper left are Karen, Mark, Mary, and Brian.  

Mom (Gerrie Pape) made the jumpers my sisters and I are wearing.  At first I wasn't sure if this was taken in 1968 or 1969, because the roll of slide film it was on was not processed until January 1970, but comparison with pictures from other years dates it at 1968, based on where the tree is placed in the living room.

The Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories (ACCM) allows you to share your family’s holiday history twenty-four different ways during December! Learn more at http://adventcalendar.geneabloggers.com.
