Christmas 1951

I am reminiscing of Christmas past , this picture is me with the doll my older brother in background and my cousin who still lives around St Louis Missouri.
These were the best  Christmas memories when my Aunt and Uncle and cousin came to my Grandparents house for Christmas.

This was back when you got one toy for Christmas, mine was doll and buggy a set LOL I was always so excited as a child for Christmas and still believed in Santa at this time.Age 5
I use to wonder how can Santa know when every child is naughty or nice and sleeping or awake. I use to ponder on this a lot as a child. Trying to figure this out.
                                                       


Did you notice my Christmas bonnett? well this was a hand me down Easter bonnett from my cousin and she(my aunt) gave me the little belt I had on also. I was so happy with my new items I was all smiles and had just turned age 5 since my birthday is in November.

This is my mother standing in the doorway she was pregnant with my soon to be sister who was born in March 1952

I'll be spending Christmas with my youngest daughters family and a dog and 2 cats so it will be a wonderful time for us all.

Merry Christmas to all of you sweet people out there in blog land xoxoxo

  2. A cute picture. I have some from that era as well. I always got a doll. I had several with my cousin with our dolls. I lost her three years ago. I really treasure those pictures. Merry Christmas.
