Baby, It’s Cold Outside

  1. I absolutely love this entry. I still dream about the house on Fourth Street. It represents to me what the perfect Family home should look like and feel like, especially when everyone was in it. I wish I could have grown up with you in it, but I am Thankful for the time I did get there. From sitting in the back yard and playing in the trees, to watching Papa come home and him giving me spinning wheels cakes, to the whole layout of every room, every nook and crany. It is so very much of who I am today. The backroom still is the reason why I like to express myself the way I do on every part of the walls in my own house and why everytime that someone comes over, I have them sign my chalkboard to leave their mark. Not to mention the furniture that I have in my home from their house. I cherish every peice with such honor. It will forever be a special place I go to in my heart and soul. I didn’t know about the stories about sleeping downstairs because it was too cold, or knowing that you even had to sleep in the kitchen with the stove just to be warm, but I can only imagine what fun that you all made out of those situations, with the humor that you all had. It is so lovely that the cold brings back those special memories. Thank you so much for sharing these on your blog. Lots of Love to you, Aunt Heidi XoXoXoXo

    1. Awww….I LOVE that you have such fond memories of your time there as a young girl Jenny. Lots of love there for sure! Those times in the winter weren’t exactly FUN, but we made the best of a difficult situation. I remember your mom trying to study for her college courses as JCC sitting on the floor in front of one of the portable heaters in her McDonalds uniform after working there. She worked so hard. We also had such a good “gang” on Fourth Street with kids from all the houses around us. Playing hide-n-seek every night during the summer or kick ball. So much outdoor stuff…well before computers and cell phones came to be. Everybody knew everybody and we had a lot of fun. Our family didn’t have much growing up compared to others on our street, but the love and humor was ALWAYS there. Keep those memories alive in your heart. Your arrival in our family certainly brought so much joy! Love you, love you. ❤️❤️❤️
