Christmas Past


Oh my goodness. See this? One of those kids is me :) That igloo was built in a field behind our house down the Barrowyard, Ironbridge. Look at all that snow. Look at our winter gear LOL. How times have changed!

  5. Ames--I know. The kids look like they're in sleeping bags by the time they head out and we didn't even have mitts! It wasn't that cold though I doubt. The river never froze when I was a kid.

    Deb--I don't think I have that teddy, though I do have one from when I was little.

    Meretta--I think so :)

    Bailey--how did you know :)???

  6. Aww, did you play inside the igloo, or just build it?

  7. That's an adorable picture, but I'm freezing just looking at you all with no coats on. But then when you're a kid, do you really feel the cold? Doesn't seem like it.

  8. Wellington boots and a pair of socks. Home knitted sweaters that only just reach your waist, no mitts, no hat :) Trousers pulled right up. I bet we were cold!!! But I don't remember being cold, and yes we played inside, I think there are photos of us inside too :) My dad was big on building igloos. He wouldn't have worn gloves either, I doubt.

    I love that picture. It reminds me of Germany where we never had to get bundled up as much as we did in Winnipeg.

    Even here in London, ON our clothing is not as heavy as it was during the winter out on the prairie.

    Isn't it lovely to have pictures like this to remind you of your childhood? My father made albums for each of us kids with pictures of our families from the time they had pictures taken. I have one of my maternal grandmother's extended family that shows about 40-50 people including my mother aged 2 or 3 years.

  11. I do love old pictures and I'm grateful my newest s-i-l scanned it for me. My parents wouldn't think. Just wouldn't cross their minds. I love the idea of old photos of relatives.

    Ruby, it would be nice not to be quite SO cold here. I think we are having extra special sub zero temps just because I wasn't looking forward to winter this year. :) I'm sure London is cold too!!!
