Daddy received transfer orders during the holidays. He would be gone at least 13 months. I helped him pack. Mom’s Christmas cards were still on display, but the excitement of the holidays quickly passed as he prepared to leave. Christmas, 1971.

Mom loved to decorate the Christmas tree. Teresa and I pose beside the tree. This would be our last Christmas in San Antonio. Memories linger. Teresa has those striped ornaments on her tree every year. And, I hang my cards on the window blinds.

Beautiful memory page! I love the colored photos with the muted background and the red pops of color.
Geez, what we bring with us from childhood! I like how you captured it...talk about bittersweet. This is beautiful work!
What a wonderful page - love the blending, and that picture and frame on the left are priceless!
Wonderful photographs - and the memories!...I love that you and your sister have carried on family traditions, isn't it powerful how we do these things without even thinking! fabulous page!
It's nice to have something that endures like the ornaments and, of course, your memories of that last Christmas in San Antonia. Wonderful photos.
What poignant memories beautifully displayed. Glad you continue your family's traditions.
