Christmas 1982 & 1984

I don’t have many regrets in my life, but one of the few I do have is that I haven’t been better organized with my photos and especially, my Christmas letters.

I’m grateful that I do have most of the annual Christmas photos I’ve sent since 1982, however, I have yet to find all of the annual Christmas letters I’ve written since then. I hope they’re packed away in a box somewhere, and perhaps they’ll be a pleasant surprise one day when they turn up.

Until then, through Advent, I’ll share some of our annual Christmas photos. Today, here’s our 1982 and 1984 photo. Don’t ask me what happened to the 1983 photo. 😦

1982 Andi – 6 months

1984
Andi – 2 years
Adam – 11 months

Advent Day 1 – Driving Home for Christmas

I love the lyrics, “Driving home for Christmas, with a thousand memories.” As part of my Advent Calendar this year, I’ll be sharing a few of my favorite Christmas memories.

What’s a favorite Christmas memory of yours?

I’m driving home for Christmas
Oh, I can’t wait to see those faces
I’m driving home for Christmas, yea
Well I’m moving down that line
And it’s been so long
But I will be there
I sing this song
To pass the time away
Driving in my car
Driving home for Christmas
It’s gonna take some time
But I’ll get there
Top to toe in tailbacks
Oh, I got red lights on the run
But soon there’ll be a freeway yeah
Get my feet on holy ground
So I sing for you
Though you can’t hear me
When I get trough
And feel you near me
Driving in my car
I’m driving home for Christmas
Driving home for Christmas
With a thousand memories
I take look at the driver next to me
He’s just the same
Just the same
Top to toe in tailbacks
Oh, I got red lights all around
I’m driving home for Christmas, yea
Get my feet on holy ground
So I sing for you
Though you can’t hear me
When I get trough
Oh and feel you near me
Driving in my car
Driving home for Christmas
Driving home for Christmas
With a thousand memories
I take look at the driver next to me
He’s just the same
He driving home, driving home
Driving home for Christmas
Driving home for Christmas
