Just for fun,  I thought I would share some pictures of Christmases long, long ago.  The first is of my sister and I - we loved our talking Cecil dinosaurs (anyone remember Cecil and Beanie from the cartoons).  The year was 1963 I believe.

The next picture is actually of me as a baby - only two weeks old - I was born on Dec. 13th.  Many years later, I would have the thrill of having a baby of mine own around Christmas time - our youngest, Drew, was born on Dec. 5th.  There is something special about holding a tiny babe on Christmas!

Believe it or not, I haven't made a single Christmas cookie yet, but I'm hoping to get most of my baking done tomorrow.  I have one more half day to work this week, then we can truly begin the celebration of our dear Savior's birth!  I hope you are all having a wonderful week.  I'll be back before Christmas to say hello, then I'm off for at least a week, as we have traveling to do and company coming after Christmas.  Stay warm! God bless!

  2. I love the photos of you at christmas..I was born in 63..my sisters birthday is tomorrow...she always hated it being so close to christmas..have a wonderful day baking..I have sugar cookies left to bake and then the 9 different things I made are done.;)

  3. Wendy,

    Don't remember Cecile and Beanie as I think you are a few years older than me, if you have the date right on your picture. I will have to ask my sister as she's 3 years older if she remembers them.

    My oldest was born on the 22nd of December so we really had a Christmas babe.

    Have fun baking.


  4. Thanks for sharing past Christmases. We have a birthday in common, I too was born on Dec 13th, I was born in 1960...just turned 50 this year. Happy belated Birthday.

    Warm winter blessings,

  5. I love your photos. I love looking at Christmas past pictures.
