"Jingle Cowjingle"

"Jingle Cowjingle All The Way" is here from Cow Parade (San Antonio, Texas, 2003) to help me finish packing my bags. Thirty-seven friends and family members are heading to Jacksonville to board the Carnival Fascination for a cruise to the Bahamas. It's going to be soooo much fun, but I have to get our clothes together and into a suitcase by Wednesday, or the sleigh is going to leave without me.

Here are some more vintage pictures. That's my little brother, Frank, and me with Santa back in 1955. The other picture was Christmas morning in 1956. Oh, I remember baby dolls who needed their bottles. I see her buggy there by the tree. Frank always loved his army men. He was crazy about that football helmet.
Precious Memories....
Merry Christmas!
