Holiday Memories and Traditions 2013

Vince Hendricks - Saturday, December 07, 2013

'Tis the season to share some family memories. Here are a few from our family to yours. Enjoy!

I will never forget my father telling me how special it was for him to be celebrating the warmth and joy of the holidays with our family at the end of World War II in December 1945.  He loved going to the mountains and cutting down a Christmas tree, making strings of popcorn for decorations and Grandma’s famous butter cream caramels. 


In 1949 he and my mother started their own family tradition with a photograph of me sitting on Santa’s lap in the picture window of our local department store.

This annual Holiday tradition continued with our sons Chris, Ben, Ian and Alex.
Along the way Christine and I joined them in one of the photos sessions.  
Today, as our sons and their lovely wives added their own children to our growing family they too have participated in this holiday tradition.


Josiah, Michael, Lexi, Kaila and Austen

We are sharing these special photographic memories with you in the hopes they will bring back fond memories of your own holiday traditions. 
We hope this holiday season will bring you great joy and happiness now and in the coming year.  From our family to yours may this season be filled with holiday cheer that will last throughout the coming year. 

Season greetings from Rob, Christine, Christopher, Lindy, Josiah, Michael, Ben, Jenna, Kaila, Alexis, Ian, Lindsay, Austen, Max and Alex

It's slow-toasted like a gourmet coffee bean to bring about it's hearty, nutty, rich flavor.
