Winters of old...

Since we are stuck here in Virginia this year longing for a white Christmas, I thought I would share these pics I found of Christmases and winters past in Minnesota. This one's for you, Mom & Dad! Merry Christmas!

Now this is snow!
Dad & Me... 1973?

Dad & Me

Yours truly, probably 1973, age 3?

Snow is a blast when you're a kid

Me & my gorgeous ma!

On grandpa's jeep

How long does it take to dress up in MN? lol

Dad & Me

Holiday Dinner, me (age 2), & mom

This probably wouldn't happen if I wasn't wearing 18" of clothing!

Love the pants, mom!

Like in Christmas Story when he couldn't put his arms down

(age 4?)

Merry Christmas to everyone, and to all back home in Minnesota & Wisconsin, we miss you! And thanks, Ma & Dad, for giving us many, many White Christmases!


  1. Aw, how adorable! Thanks for sharing those winter memories. I can so relate to the flavor and feel of those times. Looks like you are just one year older than my "baby." (I think I had the same pair of pants your mom had on in that one picture . . . what were we thinking?)

    Our big storm has yet to hit full force and we're teetering on the brink of RAIN! 3l.9° at the moment. Everything is covered in about 3-4" of the heaviest, wettest snow and the roads are slick as could be. What an unfortunate weekend for this to be happening. Hope everyone stays safe and is able to get to where they want to be.

    Happy Holidays!

  2. Oh, those wonderful snow suits! My daughter tried to find one for our 1-year-old granddaughter this winter, and the only one she could find, new, was $70!

    Hey, I remember wearing those plaid pants, LOL.

    May you and your family have a wonderful Christmas.

  3. Merry Christmas Erin! I hope you and your loved ones have great memories of this year too!

  4. Those pictures are so sweet, and in great condition! You had me laughing a bit, then tearing up in the end. So neat to see 'the farm', must have been a fun childhood. Merry Christmas, I am looking forward to the tales of Santa and the boys. :)

  5. What wonderful pictures Erin! I hope you all are having a wonderful time this Christmas. Stay warm. :)

  6. This is pretty much how it looks up here now! We've gotten a ton of snow, and they're just calling for more. Does it ever stop! Hope you had a great Christmas!
