This isn't a photo from my childhood, but it shows my party boy husband, Don. It cracks me up because there is some serious partying going on here, between the TV with rabbit ears and the modern fireplace wall. In fact some in the photo might look a little too serious! I'm pretty sure it was New Year's Eve and Don and his sister were celebrating with grandparents while Mom and Dad were out. Mostly I like this picture because it reminds me that Don is not really a party boy, but he's a good sport and he never ignores a holiday, no matter how small.
Examples of Don's Festive Devotion: First year married, our jack-o-lanterns got smashed so Don bought new pumpkins on Nov. 1 and re-carved... Don gets out the green food coloring every St. Pat's Day... He pushes for a picnic on National Picnic Day... He likes watching holiday classics like J. Garland in Easter Parade and J. Cagney in Yankee Doodle Dandy... He'll dress in something festive to toast the New Year, even if it's just the 2 of us at home!
