Saturday Snapshot ~ Christmas Memories

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce @ AT Home With Books.

Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.



The quality of this photo/scan isn't great, but this " when is Santa coming?" moment, (photo taken in the late 1970's) remains one of my favorites of when the children were little.  It warms my heart as this brother and sister duo are just as close today as they were when they were little.

  5. Oh, as you know, I love those old pictures, too. In some ways, the fact that they're a bit "blurry" makes them even more special. Thanks for sharing.

    Here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT

  9. That is adorable. I hope my kids are close when they're adults. Right now they're in that awkward teenage stage where sometimes they hate each other -- not that different from the toddler stage.
    Weird thing, when I clicked on your link from At Home With Books, it took me to your Aug. 20th Saturday Snapshot, where I had already commented.
