Christmas Toys

I love looking at photographs taken on Christmas morning.  The smiles, the excitement, the mess....and the TOYS!  I find myself studying every detail I can see.  I also like comparing Christmases from year to year.  This black and white photo was taken in the mid-1950s of my paternal uncle and aunt and the color photos were taken in 1963.  I see how much my aunt had grown and how the toys had changed.
