Among the photographic treasures I inherited this year are these photographs of my mom with Santa.
Her first Christmas. She was just over a month old:
This photo is still in its fancy mid-century photo cover.
Her family lived in Alaska until she was three. You can definitely tell which photos were taken in California (visiting her family) and which photos were taken in Alaska.
Her second Christmas. Halfway through her visit with Santa, she decided she didn't like him very much:
Her third Christmas:
This wasn't the same visit with Santa, but it was the same Christmas. She still wasn't sure about sitting on Santa's knee:
Her fourth Christmas. Looks like they went to the same department store as the previous year:
Here's one in color. Again, here's the tree from the previous year:
Love the frame for this undated Christmas photo:
I love that Joan kept these together. It's really fun to see them as a group.
