Hey y’all! Can you believe it? Christmas is right around the corner! Today’s blogmas post is showing y’all some of my past Christmases through pictures!
P.S. I forgot to link my Christmas Photo Diary that I posted on The Artistics earlier, so here it is! Be sure to check it out, I put a ton of work into it and really like how it turned out.
This is a picture of my first Christmas, and I can tell that its super old because not only is it in my old house, but the carpet is still silver blue. Now all I want for Christmas is to sleep like I did back then.
I’m not positive, but I’m going to assume this is the year after. These pictures were actually taken at my grandma’s house, and that’s my mom holding me. Aw, we were so cute.
From here on, I have no idea what year the picture is from xD This one was also taken at my grandma’s old house when I was still the only grandchild (oh, the good old days…) My mom is holding me while I’m sitting on my aunt Julie’s shoulders. And then my uncles are around us (and yes, they still act like that).
This is one of my favorite pictures, because first off my dad looked older then than he does now (and pretty creepy actually), and because he has socks on his ears. He’s a dork.
This Christmas was great because I got a trampoline. And it was also my first Christmas with my brother, back when I wanted him around if you can’t tell by the way I’m holding him.
So this picture was taken up at my uncles ex-wife’s parents cabin. My parents obviously decided to take me sledding (I think I was about 3 or 4) and I clearly did not like it. From what I’ve heard I was just crying the whole time because I was freezing.
This picture is me with my new beach set and my uncle Richie posing so… well that’s just him in a picture. It’s actually his birthday tomorrow so we’re throwing him a surprise party! When I was younger we were best buds. And he’s actually still my favorite, shh…
For Christmas in 2011 we (My family, Amy, David, and Summit) drove to Wisconsin so our parents could watch a Bears vs. Packers game- and us kids went to the world’s largest indoor water park- The Kalahari. On the drive home we stopped in Chicago and got a tour of Soldier Field (Go Bears!) This was by far one of the best Christmases ever, I’ll have to try and find the picture of us with the tiger cub at some point…
This was Christmas of 2013, and also our first Christmas in our new house! It was really cool to make new traditions and have new experiences 🙂
This picture was taken at my grandma’s new house in 2014 (I can tell because the baby is crawling, and that would make her 8 months old at the time) This is how we spend Christmas Eve at my grandma’s house, in a big circle with kids on laps and wrapping paper everywhere. Just the way I like it.
This is the last Christmas I have a picture for, and was also 2014 actually. I remember that Spencer was psyched to get a phone, but that was also the year I got my cowboy boots, so I was more excited for them xD
This year is going to be weird- we’re not going to be with my mom’s family on Christmas Eve since we’re doing the birthday party for my uncle tomorrow. And we usually have my dad’s family over on Christmas but they’re not coming over til the day after. So our 2 main days are basically free!
