Farmer Fred Award Winner December 2013: The More Things Change...

Farmer Fred grew up with a photo taking mother and grandfather. His youth is well documented. He now has two photo taking daughters and a wife who publishes photos on this blog several times each week. His grand daughters can snap a photo on an IPhone. 
And, of course, the subject of this post is Christmas. Grandma and Grandpa are both tired after Christmas. We know from first hand experience...Life really is a circle.
The Farmer Fred Award Winner for December 2013 is presented to:
The More Things Change...
originally published December 11, 2013
The camera has changed and yet the faces seem remarkably familiar. 
Christmas with family may change every year. 
And  yet, the wonder remains the same.
 Boys wonder if they will get enough to eat at the kid's table.
 The brothers wonder if they will ever figure out how to play this new game.
Mom wonders if she will ever find all the pieces to the gifts that her girls are opening as she patiently helps Grandma. 
 I wonder how long they will play with those.
 I wonder if everyone will get a turn to play electric baseball.
After weeks of preparation 
 Christmas finally arrives.
It is over in a flash 
Before you know it Grandma is tired and sending everyone out the door.
