Home movies shot by Mervin LaRue Jr. including Christmas in Lake City, Iowa with the Wellington side of the family. LaRue kids Michèle ("Chell"), age 9, Jacqueline ("Jack"/"Jacqui"), age 6, and William Bryan ("Billy"), age 3, play with toy guns and dogs. Michèle remembers cowboys being all over the TV in these years, and subsequently a lot of make-believe playing as cowboys. The reel also features vacation footage of a family boating excursion, possibly at Fox Lake in Wisconsin. A family trip to Burlington, Iowa, is also depicted with Roland Mueller, a chemical engineer and Michèle's godfather. Also included is footage of a birthday party in the LaRue family's Park Ridge backyard.
