Christmas 2003: #tbt

During the Christmas holiday in 2003 we traveled west to spend time with Julie’s family in Ohio and Michigan. Our boys at the time were young with Michael being 4 1/2 and Max at 18 months. I have such wonderful memories of the holidays spent with family and this was no exception. I cannot believe that these images were taken 12 years ago, how time does fly.

Merry Christmas to you!

Merry Christmas

I purchased this postcard many years ago while visiting Bronner’s “Christmas Wonderland” in Frankenmuth, Michigan, it has to be my favorite of all time.

As a matter of fact I bought about 30 or 40 of these postcards and have sent them out over the years to family and friends. Sadly Bronner’s does not have this postcard anymore. This scan is from my personal collection.

Track Meet Maine Endwell at Susquehanna Valley

This afternoons weather in Central New York was cloudy, windy and a bit chilly. This however did not put a damper on Michael’s track meet at Susquehanna Valley. Michael’s school Maine Endwell competed along with Susquehanna Valley, Union Endicott and Norwich in a modified track meet. Michael ran in the one and two hundred meter dash and took part in the long jump. He put in an impressive performance in the dashes but I’ll be honest I couldn’t see the long jump. But if you ask him how he did I get “I did fine Dad”…. Thursday we will do it again.
