As 2013 winds down, the Daily Post weekly photo challenge is joy. This is certainly the season. During this last week of the year, I  found a few minutes to check through my photos. I decided to have some fun and look at really old photos. My first 2 selections are from many, many years ago when my brother and I were little and cute and oh so joyful. These photos were taken in the first house I ever lived in. Oh how I miss those western themed drapes! And isn’t it adorable how I managed to steal the show at his birthday party?

I think you can see the joy in their faces – being together as family. I remember when this photo was taken. Sadly not all of my aunts and uncles are still with us. Fondly I remember Uncle Harvey, Aunt Margaret and Uncle Harry and the huge part they played in my life.siblingsThis last photo of joy makes me smile every time I look at it. My children even then were long past the age of sitting on Santa’s knee, but they had this photo taken for me. Santa and the kidsI want to wish everyone a Happy Holiday Season – hopefully a time filled with family and friends. I am thankful for all the goodness around me, and delighted to have made friends through the world of blogging. I wish everyone health, happiness and all the best in 2014!

  1. I love these photos! I hope you and your family and loved ones had the most wonderful Christmas, Terri! Have you had an exciting or a restful Christmas break? We’ve had a few quieter days of Cross Country skiing and games.. I wish this would never end! xx


    1. Thanks, Barb. Christmas was lovely and quiet, but the house is full now that everyone has arrived. Terrific snow and so far great weather have made for an excellent holiday. I love it but I’ll be ready for it to end by the time everyone heads home!
