I come from a family with four daughters. I'm the oldest (the blond in the rear), then comes my sister Nan (front right), and sister number 3 is the baby in this Christmas picture. My dad is keeping an eye on her as it's her first birthday. Yes, Meg was born on Christmas Day.
I'm age six which might be a bit old to be getting a teddy bear at Christmas but that's my guy at Meg's feet. I believe the plush wire-haired terrier is hers. I can actually recognize at least one ornament on the Christmas tree that is hanging on my tree today and I am wearing a navy blue jersey pinafore with red embroidery on it that my mother made.
Lest you think my teddy bear is just a memory, here he is in my red sitting room with Mark's donkey and another bear that was a grownup gift. The "Backscratchers" chair is by Madison artist Rumi O'Brien. Merry Christmas to you all!
