I thought it might be fun if we dug out some photos of Christmas's past either of ourselves or the kids, other family, precious pets, what ever you like.
Here's a couple of mine;
Thats me in the middle in the very fashionable 'Holly Hobby' dress at about 7 years of age in 1973 with two of my precious cousins who would have been about 3 & 4 at the time. I can't quite work out why we had that little tree behind us as from memory it was taken at my Aunty & Uncles place where there was always a live Christmas tree that reached from the floor to the top of their 20 foot ceiling. Maybe it was just a filler in a spare corner. Our Christmas's were magic & we were totally surrounded by family, great food & lots of love. I loved that dress!
Easy to tell when this was, 1974, aged 8 in McKays Department store in Nelson, New Zealand. Thank goodness the pudding bowl haircut had departed but the ample sprinkling of freckles were still with me. Holly Hobby was but a memory & I had started in to my 'blue' clothes phase to match my eyes. Poor Santa's looking a bit jaded, no doubt thinking 'oh no, not the bigger kids, me knees are killing me already!' I imagine that was about when I kicked the sitting on Santa's knee habit too.
So how about you - any fashionable secret santa sessions to share with us? Type your details in to Mr Linky so we can all come visit & share in some Christmas cheer. This is my first time using Mr Linky so let me know if any problems, it's been another learning curve!
