Since it's Christmas Eve, I thought I'd share a few photos from Christmases past. First, a picture from 60 years ago, Christmas 1955, when I was 2 years old. Since we lived in a trailer, our tree had to be pretty small.
Christmas 1973. Donna and I were married in June, so this was our first Christmas together.
Christmas 1974. Our dog Muffet liked the beard a lot better than Donna did!
Christmas 1979. Donna and I are on the left, my sister Carol is in green. My mom is in white, my brother Ron is in the back, and my brother Dave is in the front.
Christmas 1986. Fellow Cincinnati City Councilmember Ken Blackwell and I bringing Christmas cheer to kids at the Price Hill community center.
Christmas 1989. From left to right. Back row, my dad, me, my sister's husband Joe, and their son Joey. Middle row, Dave's wife Ellen, my mom, our daughter Erica, Ron's wife Nancy, Donna's mom Hilda, Ron's daughter Laura, our son Randy in the Santa outfit, and Donna. Front row, my brother Dave, my brother Ron, and Ron's daughter Maria.
From our family to your family, Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!
