Remember Whensday No. 28 - 1st Washington Christmas

This week for Remember Whensday, in keeping with a Christmas theme, I am remembering my first Christmas in Washington with my future husband and stepsons. We kept things simple that year with a small artificial tree.

I guess Karl thinks he's a Christmas present.


Ryan got a Walkman; obsolete technology these days. He also got some clothes and probably a silly gift. Karl got at least one shirt. I can't remember the rest.

Check out the silliness on these two!

Ryan & Karl

Josh got new shoes, pants and a drawing set. And a silly gift, of course!


Me, I got two little hand towels from my BFF back in Maryland. We always exchanged gifts with cardinal motifs since they are our favorite bird. You won't find cardinals in Washington state. Drats!

OMG, look at those high-waisted jeans I'm wearing! Oh, to be that thin again though.


It was the start of many great Christmases.

I hope you enjoyed my little trip to Remember Whensday this week. To see what others are sharing, or to share a something yourself, just click on the Remember Whensday badge below.
