This was taken sometime between 1960 and 1962. My dad took Christmas family photos every year that I remember. The bush in Cara's hand is a small pine tree that we planted when we first moved to this house.
Candy, Cara and Charles are in front - Dad, me, Mom in the back. Notice the planned three and three staggering!
The Christmas photos were unhappy to live with - they were taken with Polaroid so you could instantly see how terrible someone looked, so we had to take a lot of pictures to make sure that EVERYONE was perfect.
