Candlelight By Daylight?

Candlelight By Daylight?

Blandinsville, Ill., Christmas 1955. Who ever heard of a candlelight dinner during the day?

The local paper would print a news story of our visit and at the end it would read, "and everyone had a good time."
I think the reporters were telling the truth.

Grandmother always had devotional books at the table. Silent witnesses to subsequent generations and one that continues to this very day. View full size.

True Love

This man truly loved his wife! Look at that huge window (with a view, no less). Look at the sill full of plants! Look at him gooble up those goodies - no time to pose for a snapshot!

I can't remember NOT having a great time at family Christmas dinners. Thank God for these special times (and the invention of the camera that keeps them fresh in our hearts).
