Postcard to Rena Lerfald from Cousin Adelia, 14 Dec 1909. Westaby-Lerfald Postcard Collection. Privately held by Troy Midkiff, [ADDRESS FOR PRIVATE USE,] Vancouver, Washington. 2009.
My family and I will be crowded around the old oak table once owned by my great-grandmother, enjoying a Christmas feast of ham, homemade pies, and many other goodies. My parents, my brother, my sister, my three young nephews, and my daughter will join my husband, my son, and me to exchange gifts, memories, stories, and laughter. Best of all, no snow! I'm rejoicing that for once, we won't have a white Christmas, and those of you across the continent who are experiencing what we did last year most likely will understand. The best and "merrie-est" wishes to you and yours on this day!
