Mid Century Christmas Trees and Gifts

These 1950s Christmas color slides are fun. I still have not identified the family/ies but their Christmases are suburban baby-boomer style and I love it!!

Shiny aluminum Christmas Tree!

I think if you did not have a shiny aluminum Christmas tree, you loaded it down with tinsel!

"Patty" "Bill"

"Nancy" "Bill"

I really love the vintage ornaments on this tree!

I can imagine how excited these girls were to get brand new roller skates! Their names are possibly Nancy and Patty.

Close ups of gifts under the trees:

Pink poodle toy, bear (wind up?)

Record player (it appears to be sized for 45s), Santa boot with candy cane, salt and pepper set

Airplane, and at least two fire trucks, Cowboy Jr. Cap Pistol

Ballerina doll, Skunk, Cowboy Jr. Cap Pistol, Fire trucks

Record player?, Dolls, teddy bears, mixer?

Lincoln Logs, teapot?, football, toy gun? something with Mickey Mouse on it, Betty Crocker Junior Baking Kit, doctor kit?

JC Higgins Model 20 Pump Acton 12 Gauge Shotgun, clock (radio?) axe

Doll, Kodalite FlashHolder, Cat!, Target shooting game, Monopoly, purse

The Visible Man, red purse, Campus Sweater, sewing machine, wind up bear, typewriter, drill, leather case

Female names in this collection are Nancy and Patty, One of the males is Bill - I assume these are the children but could be the parent names as well? I think they lived in the Puyallup area.
