Christmas Delights: Sepia Saturday

This week's  prompt of a German Christmas calendar has delightful illustrations of children enjoying themselves over the festive season - baking, painting, reading, sledging, and generally playing and having fun. 

No vintage photographs exist of my ancestors at Christmas
  so I have looked back instead at more recent times 

Granddaughter with her menagerie! 

 Another friend to join the collection ! 

 Best dress on show 

 Enjoying a good book! 

The serious artist at work!

Daughter All wrapped up for a winter ride! 

Mummy's little  helper in the kitchen

But at the end of the day, what is most fun!   Playing in the boxes of course!


Sepia Saturday gives bloggers an opportunity 
to share their family history through photographs.

  1. I laughed at the boxes -- children and cats BOTH love 'em!

  2. Nicely done - who hasn’t had a little imp playing with the box whilst the gift it contained is ignored?

  3. There's just something about boxes (and large paper bags) that appeal to a child's nature. :)

  4. Too cute! The wide dark eyes make the photos into special treasures.

  5. The little helper in the kitchen is a delight.

  6. Love the purple dress photo. I bet that tower of blocks didn't last long!

  7. Lovely photographs. And for most children the cardboard box is often just as fascinating as whatever might have been inside.

  8. What beautiful smiles! They made me smile in turn. You have an excellent response to the prompt. Thanks so much for sharing!

  9. Kids and cats with boxes, we were just commenting on this phenomenon while my cat napped in a box next to her brand new cat tree! Lovely, adorable photos!

  10. Thank you all for your lovely comments.

  11. Wonderful children's photos, shining faces full of love!

  12. These are so joyful! Thanks for the smile you've given me.

  13. I'm so glad to see a little bald baby girl. My granddaughter just turned 1 and still cannot hold a bow in her bits of hair. Fun photos, Susan!
