I often talked about the great Christmas' when my Brother got the Marx Battleground Playset, and I got the Marx Fort Apache Playset. Also the year before when my Brother got a Dicky Tracy Gun Set, and I got a Western Gun Set. Well I recently inherited my Dad's ten boxes of slide trays, and I've been scanning them into my PC. Ah the great memories. Here's the scans of those two great Christmas':
CHRISTMAS 1964. MY SISTER, MY BROTHER AND ME SPORTING MY DANIEL BOONE PAJAMAS. OH YEAH. THIS IS THE YEAR WE GOT OUR RACETRACK TOO:

THIS IS CHRISTMAS 1967 WHEN MY DAD BOUGHT ONE OF THOSE UGLY ALUMINUM CHRISTMAS TREES. THE ONLY GOOD THING ABOUT IT IS THAT BACK IN 2003 I WAS ABLE TO SELL IT ON EBAY FOR $105.00. WE USED THIS UGLY THING FOR TWO CHRISTMAS' UNTIL OUR LOCAL W. T. GRANT'S WENT OUT OF BUSINESS, AND MY DAD GOT A 7 1/2 FOOT, GREEN ARTIFICIAL TREE FOR $10.00. HE USED THAT TREE EVERY YEAR UNTIL HIS LAST CHRISTMAS IN 2008.
THIS IS A CLOSE-UP PHOTO OF MY DAD'S PARENTS CHRISTMAS TREE FROM 1962 IN WHICH YOU CAN SEE A COUPLE OF THE VINTAGE SPINNER ORNAMENTS THAT I INHERITED BACK IN 1997:
