When my sister Jane and I were little, Nana (Martha Penny Derickson Bringhurst) and Poppa (Frederick R. Bringhurst) used to sit in the car outside our house, waiting for us to wake up so they could enjoy Christmas morning with us.
This Christmas was special since it was the first Christmas for our sister Barbara. She is the two month old baby in the back being held by her grandmother, Lois Budd Naff (Wowie to us). And Poppa died two weeks later at the age of 81. Mom looking very young is peaking out beside Nana.
We loved Christmas, grandparents and our great grandparents.
