Christmases Past

Let me start by saying, I really have a love affair with Christmas. I would leave Christmas decorations out year round if I knew people wouldn't mock me. You would be hard pressed to find ANYTHING about Christmas that I don't love... well, okay, except for Feliz Navidad. I hate that darn song!

My love affair started early, at my two month mark...
But on my second Christmas, things seem to be off to a pretty rocky start!
Someone must have explained who this guy was and what he does on Christmas Eve, because the situation seems to have improved dramatically. I've always been a rational person.
Christmas at my grandma's and a new pony.
The next year...

This guy was a family friend who I knew well. I never figured it out.
I'm not sure what has prompted this reaction, but I'm pretty darn excited!
This is Santa visiting me on Christmas Eve at the St. Bernard in Taos, NM
He was my ski instructor. I don't know why I didn't realize it. (You're starting to think I'm a little "slow" aren't you?)
Back in the room, Santa had filled my enormous stocking and brought a couple of my gifts.

I house-sat for some people who really do have Christmas year round! Snowmen and winter paintings never come down! And yet their house doesn't really seem stuck in Holiday-land, I don't know how they do it.

Wonderful CIJ party. I am finally getting to make the rounds. I did a quick check on my party and visited with guests there, so please excuse me if I missed you. I will be back home later to mingle some more. Right now, I am trying to fit in all the blog parties. This is such fun!!!!!

Merry Christmas in July from Texas!

Great photos. I love them all. I plan to gather all my old ones together for my blog this season. I especially want to make a post of my kids and Christmases.

Oh my goodness. You brought back some great memories. Red velvet cake, green shag carpet, Christmas in New York, and, best of all, a Barbie Townhouse! Can't you just smell that wonderful aroma of plastic now?

Oh I just love all your old photos!! I'm flashing back to the pics of me on Santa's lap....with me smiling and my little brother wailing...he was a wee bit scared of the jolly ol' man in the red suit! :>

WOW are you lucky to have all these fabulous photo's of you at Christmas, as the years progress they become even more priceless - awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww great memories are to be cherished. You did a great job on creating your CIJ party, it was my first time also.
