  1. Loved all the old pictures! My mom has a ton of these from when we were kids. There are a few I would like to burn! 🙂

    Hope you have a great Christmas season!


      1. I love the photos, that seems to be a common comment, but I love your idea of the photos being an idea for a blog post! I know many of my Christmas wishes went unfulfilled, but I always had family. Wishing you the best Christmas and Happiest New Years (even after the fact 🙂 )


  2. Your pictures always leave us with a feeling of warmth & family, Coleen. And of course, it wasn’t two seconds after opening your blog that I told Inion to grab our photo album. Inion immediately looked at me & said. “Was there any picture of me on Santa’s lap that I wasn’t balling my eyes out.” lol. By the way, love the one of you & your siblings!! Merry Christmas Coleen, & Happy New Years!


  3. What a gorgeous, smiley kid you were! 🙂 Hope you have a really lovely Christmas and well earned break, Coleen. I’m looking forward to finally reading your book, and pressing the reset button.


  4. I love these photographs, isn’t it cool how instagram and other photo editing software is trying to capture this sort of vintage look.. we had it first:) Wishing you and your loved ones a fantastic holiday and the Happiest of New Years!! xx
