The 8mm camera we had required that the film be “flipped” after it got to the end on the first run. The camera used one side of the film at a time. There was no indicator on the camera if the film got flipped and Dad lost track of flipping this one, so it was double exposed. –SJA
Tom gets a playdough factory, Ken gets a 3D slide viewer, Steve got some matchbox cars and a mini pool table, I see some tinker toys, I got a snow globe and a dress. Bob got a skateboard and an Etch a Sketch. Everyone looks so happy. Dinner with Grandma Albin and Aunt Hilde at Uncle Bob and Aunt Peggy’s house. There is a clip with Laddie. –DAA

Christmas 1965 – Decorating the tree and living room, making cookies and opening gifts. Christmas was always grand and festive on Montauk Ave. A time when we could be in the living room. Chris would have been about 18 months. Ken was 6 and it was his turn to put the star up. Tom was 2 and Brian 4.
Dad made that tree for the outside and every year filled it with fresh greens. Mom always made spritz cookies. I remember those reindeer cookies. We thought they were special.
What a sport dad was. He bought mom an iron! He also bought mom an Oster blender. Wonder if she ever made a well-deserved Margarita with it? Chris got a Tyke Bike. –DAA
