my vintage christmas shots

One of my most treasured photos is of my mom with Santa in 1953. I copied & printed it on canvas & added a little dusting of iridescent glitter. I love taking it out each year....so darn precious!


So do my photos that date pre-digital- camera-days need to be referred to as vintage...probably so. Please excuse the blurriness & funky color of my scanned (gasp) images of the past.


Definitely the winning Christmas shots are of Caroline loosing her mind on Santa's lap the first 2 years of her life. I especially love this one with big sisters who seem to be blissfully unaware of the screaming ( albeit matching) baby sister.






& then her repeat performance the next year. I'm pretty sure we brought him cookies that year & in hopes that he would have fond memories of little missy.


moments prior to the Santa visit...see that cute red & white checked floor!






The first time I took all 3 girls to see the Nutcracker at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta. Savannah had been the year before but this was the little two's first time....this was the day Madison began to dream of dancing one day on stage-priceless






See, she's recovered & now adores the jolly ole' guy!







Christmas tree farm where we chopped down our trees for a few years. Loved their wonderful sleigh & the cute red wagons.

















She still misses this too stinkin' cute Grinch sweater & fab green suede boots.










How can you not love a Santa who sits on a striped settee each year, combined with the red & white checkered tiled floor.


Makes for such a great shot.


God love 'em.

Christmas Eve performance at church, with none other than the beloved red cowboy boots




...of course

Caroline as an angel in preschool...

i think i might need to print this one on canvas too & add a little glitter

i especially love her little tattered wing

no one's perfect after all.


ps-a must read for the holidays
