Seasonal wishes for my SepiaSaturday friends

This week's prompt for SepiaSaturday got me looking for bygone Christmases.  I came up with these pictures:

 Here I am with my niece and nephew Christmas 1971.  Dad would always go out and cut a "real" Christmas tree, some of them had odd shapes, but the smell always was so nice....
 Speaking of Dad, here is me, Dad (who thought he would don  a wig on for the pic) and my sister, Christmas 1971.
 I am holding my firstborn, David, Christmas 1972.  I am wearing the "going away" dress from my wedding from a couple of years prior to this.  It seems any girl getting married had to have a "going away" dress for the honeymoon.  I made this one (you guessed it) out of polyester crimpknit.  Who remembers sewing with that material?
 MY friend and I each holding one of my daughter's "Cabbage Kid Doll", that was all the rage back in the '70's.
My little brood, David, Christina, and Andrew around 1984 or 1985.  Where have the years gone?  Now they are all grown and away.

Finally, I will finish with  this collage of pictures I took this past year, just to bring us up to the present.

Please go to www.sepiasaturday.blogspot.com  for more seasonal wishes, for all the unChristian people, I wish you all Happy Holidays, Happy Hannakuh, whatever you celebrate, please have a good time over the next couple of weeks.....

SepiaSaturday December 7, 2013 edition

This week I thought I would feature a MAN in an apron. It is from the site of "Our Miramichi Heritage Photos".  Life was certainly challenging back in the '30's and '40's.  A man back then did not need a "man cave", he practically worked in one...LOL

 Below the picture was this write-up:

Miramichi River
c 1930
During the winter months, trees were felled in lumber camps that could lodge between 20 and 100 loggers. This group photo shows the various roles the men could have. There is a cook wearing a white apron; a man, probably the camp owner, in suit and tie; and loggers. The loggers would also go hunting in winter - hence the sporting guns.

Moving right along, since we are "in the season" I will include a picture of my sister, Dianne, and me in our Christmas aprons getting ready for Christmas Dinner in 2005.

 There are butlers on our aprons singing Fa La La La La....
Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays/Happy time off to all!!!  :)
