(Not So) wordless Wednesday - Family Photographs: Post 82 - Seaver Christmas Tree

I'm posting old family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless Wednesday posts like others do - I simply am incapable of having a wordless post.

This photograph is from the box of loose photographs given me by my mother between 1988 and 2002:

This photograph is from Christmas 1970 (I think) and was taken in the living room of the Seaver home at 2119 30th Street in San Diego. The people shown are my father, Frederick Seaver (age 58 at the time), my brother Scott (age 15 at the time) and my mother Betty (age 51 at the time). This was my first year to be married, and I don't have digitized pictures of my first Christmas together with Linda.

From the mid-1960s on, my parents bought white flocked trees at the Christmas tree lots around town. My mother, ever the artiste, enjoyed decorating them. My father and my brother, ever the chow-hounds, just enjoyed the Christmas goodies and the gifts!
