Back to front, left to right - Bill, Mary, Jessica, me, Branwen, Don, Dad and Mom. This was a great Christmas at Mom and Dad's. For one thing, look how skinny I was. What more could one want for Christmas? Unfortunately, Santa doesn't leave skinniness in my stocking anymore. My favorite memory of that year is Jessica singing Christmas Carol solos and the Cabbage Patch Kid she has clutched in her arms.
