ghost of Christmas past

my mom, me, my dad and brother Christmas about 1959, i think i was about 10 or 11. Mom passed away in 2002 and dad in 2008. This is when there was just 2 kids, after this photo 4 more siblings were born, more on that later. We were at my paternal grandma's house in the city, my dress was blue dotted swiss with velvet trim, just the thing to wear in the winters of the midwest! i don't remember the stuffed animal but it must have been pretty special. Merry Christmas to everyone and Peace to the world.
