Oops....we hit Mr. Snowman

This is looks like a scene from my window today.
The snow cannot deter children from having a good time outdoors.
I wonder how warm children in this era stayed in their sweaters and knickerbockers.
I remember a special photograph taken of my father around 1914 or so,
all dressed up in a tie and jacket and his knickerbockers. 
 I bet he was glad when he could wear trousers "below his knees!"

  1. My dad would talk about that too! Born in 1929, he was 12 before he got a long pair of pants :) There were 6 boys, so I bet he had to wait for an older sibling to outgrow a pair before he got his.
