Cabin Fever Produces Fun Family Memories From Years Past

OK~ Winter is dragging on and on. Our calendar says March 2nd and it is 2:00 p.m. and still below zero outdoors. Hello? March, are you home? How are you and your family coping? I know that I am getting a serious case of cabin fever.

I am trying to remember what it is like to walk out of the house without layers and layers of clothing on. From the long underwear to the scarves and gloves, this Mom is tired of it! I'd just love to be able to walk to the car without worrying about falling on the ice. Yes, it's so cold that even ice melt won't work. And that my friends, means it's a cold winter!

My hubby found a fun project, and it's no surprise, as he usually tackles this one this time of year. We have oodles of "old" family photos and slides buried deep in our attic and closets. Yesterday he dove into them. And low and behold, he found some pretty fun stuff! Our 23 and 18 year old sons even found these to be interesting.

Check this one out! If you have ever visited Mount Rushmore, you will get why this one is so fun. I wonder what year this was? There is no year on the photo. Any estimates?

The old farm photos are also very interesting. Now, I know we have had snow this year, but how about this much snow?

This is obviously before snow rakes had been invented. Yep, that's a roof of a building in our yard and it's still standing!

And how fun is this? You gotta love to see the photos of farmers working as a team. The threshing days brought a lot of memories for a lot of folks in the neighborhood.

I am making the best of a cold situation. I am writing, planning 2014, and actually having run reminiscing through the old family photos. I do wonder what prized photos will seem to appear out of nowhere. Today photos are not placed in boxes in attics, they are immediately shared through smart phones and voila- they are on Facebook for the whole world to see. On to the next photo box! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
