1979—Christmas

In preparation for Christmas morning, Valerie would obscure the windows in the family-room door with festive paper; you can discern her handiwork behind Erik and Cindy (who may by this time have become Cyndi). On the morning itself, the little ones would drag the big ones from the arms of Morpheus, and then Valerie would require the juvenile set to line up at the newly-opaque door in age sequence, beginning with the youngest one able to stand. Only then would she produce the key. Here are a couple of pictures of the line, from later years.
