December 26th Remembered

I got this in grade school and it followed me through 4 years of college.

Auntie Tina and Uncle Ray brought this to the "three little girls" (me and two of my sisters) probably about 1968 or so.

The day after…the day kids actually get to play with the toys that were ferociously opened on Christmas day.  What I remember about the day after is going through the pile of opened gifts to choose a favorite. I may have mentioned that I grew up with seven siblings, so there were always lots of things under the tree.

I’ve been searching Google images for the last couple of days to find pictures of the ones I remember most.  So as a way to thank my Mom, Dad, Auntie Tina, Uncle Joe, Uncle Ray, Grandma Kelly, and everyone else, for the great toys (some I didn’t even know I wanted until they were) opened on Christmas morning, here are some reminders of my favorites:

Another favorite doll, Giggles.  Poor thing who kept my sisters awake at night; when you moved her arm she would giggle, a lot!

My Krissy doll, you could make her hair grow with the push of one button and shorten it with another; unless you have a sister who cut it off.
