Harry and Jerry's First Christmas

Contributor: 8diggin Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

Alone, Together Christmas "Wilford, Wilford, came look out the window. Doesn't that look like Harry & Jerry to you?" Peaking around the Christmas wreath hung on the inside of the window and trying to see through the startling silver-white designs of Jack Frost on the' outside, Wilford looked out into the cold night. There weren't any street lights in the small Mormon community but the dim outline of a young couple showed through the cold window pane. A light snow was falling as the couple continued their journey toward Wilford and Theresa's. "Yes, Theresa, it does look like them. I hope nothing's wrong with Jerry. Do you think maybe the baby's going to cane early? It's not due until February, didn't you say?" "No, oh, I hope it's not the baby, with it being their first, everything has to be alright. Open the door, let's get them inside by the fire. With both their head hung down and their arms around each other, they look so cold." Harry and Jerry were just up to the porch of the house as Wilford opened the door. How warm and inviting the front room looked! The kids had strung popcorn all around the tree. The red and green candles on the mantel and on the chest by the couch gave such a warm glow and pleasant fragrance to the room. The popcorn ball Christmas tree with its red hot candies and gun drops scattered about looked so good sitting in the middle of the pine-bough topped piano. It looked like a home for Christmas. "Come in, come in. Is everything all right? Is everything okay? What brings you out walking on such a cold, snowy night?" "Now, just slow down, Aunt Theresa. Everything's all right," answered Harry as he lovingly helped his bride of just over a year off with her coat. "You see, this is our first Christmas alone together. Utah's a long way from Arizona, especially at Christmas time. "I came home from the mill tonight and Jerry was feeling awfully pregnant and awfully lonesome at Christmas. We just want to be with family for Christmas. Do you think you'd have room for us tonight?" Aunt Theresa remembered the lonesome feelings of being a newlywed away from family at Christmas. How her heart swelled with pride that Harry and Jerry would cane to lighten their homesickness at her house! How grateful she was for the warm fireplace, the freshly cut pine tree, the joyfully decorated roan and the warm feelings among those in the room. "Of course, we'd love to have you anytime, especially tonight. You just stay as long as you like. Wilford, let's get sane hot apple cider going. They need something to warm their hands." Uncle Wilford and Aunt Theresa didn't have a big house, but it was a family home. The hand sewn quilts spread out on the floor in front of the fireplace for Harry and Jerry that night were just as nice as any big four poster bed. Those "I'm-lonesome-for-mother" feelings were almost pushed away as Jerry had family for Christmas.

Seraphine Smith Frost - History

Contributor: 8diggin Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

~-------------------------------------------------------------------~ SERAPHINE SMITH FROST Sister Frost is the oldest member of Mesa 11th Ward and has owned her home on Udall street since 1955 or 56. She was born in Snowflake, AZ on August 19, 1891 to Silas D. and Ellen J. Larson Smith. Her grandfather, Jesse N. Smith, was the stake president, and her other grandfather, Mons Larson, crossed the plains in a handcart company and had moved to Snow- flake from Santaquinn, Utah when called by the church , In 1879 he returned to Utah for his second wife and was with the group called to settle San Juan County, Utah who built the famous road through the "Hole in the Rock". They crossed the Colorado river on Jan 26, 1880. Her husband, Clarence Alford Frost, was also born in Snowflake to William Allen and Amelia Anderson Frost on January 14, 1891 but the family moved to Woodruff when the children were young. Later, after his mother's death, they went to New Mexico, and finally settled in Monticello, Utah. One winter he returned to Snowflake to attend school at the Academy and at the first entertainment he met Seraphine and walked her home from the dance. By the time spring came they had decided to get married in the fall and he returned to Monticello to earn a wedding stake. They met again in Salt Lake City and were married in the Temple on October 4, 1911. After spending about a week in the city they took the train to Thompson, Utah and from there to Monticello in his horse drawn buggy. It took several days to make the trip and it was the first time she had been away from Arizona and her relatives and family where she had been very secure and happy. She was a good student and popular in her crowd and was a beautiful young woman. She had met her husband's step mother briefly but did not know another soul in her new home town except Clarence, her husband. The country was beautiful and the marriage a happy one but she did get so homesick. Her children remember the many stories about Snowflake and the good times in Arizona. In the fall of 1912 they were expecting their first baby so decided to make the trip to Snowflake and be with her parents for the great event. They thought they had plenty of time for the trip and had been on the road traveling in a wagon for nine days when they stopped for the night at an Indian Trading Post called Chinaman Springs. The kind trader gave them a bed inside and made a trip into Gallop, New Mexico for the doctor. Their baby girl arrived safely on November 8, 1912 and was named Willamelia for her Frost grandparents, Will and Amelia. After a few days Seraphine and the baby took the train from Gallop and were met in Holbrook by her father and taken on to Snowflake where her husband joined her later to spend the winter. They had four children when her husband was called on a mission to California and was to leave in January 1920. At the time he had enough wheat stored to finance the mission but before time to leave disaster struck. The building burned down and all the grain and other valuable things such as wedding presents, furniture and tools were destroyed and a few days later one of their choice team of horses died. It was a very discouraging. time but Seraphine encouraged her husband to go and then took her little family to Hunter, Utah to live with her parents. They had moved from Arizona to a small farm just out of Salt Lake City. The family traveled by mail car and train and there she lived for the 2 and a half years he was gone. There her last child, a boy, was born in August 1920. The children each had all of the common diseases including scarlet fever and Clarence was also very sick in the mission field for two or three months but they did all survive and returned to Monticello after his release from the mission. As the farm had been mortgaged and the taxes were delinquent, it took about ten years to pay the debts. Most of this time Clarence worked for Charles Redd at the Old LaSal Ranch as foreman and Seraphine cooked for the ranch hands, washed their clothes and ironed, made butter and all of the other hard work to provide for the family so that his wages could be used to pay the debts. The two older children attended school in Salt Lake and California as there was only a one room school at LaSal. They moved back to Monticello in the spring of 1929 and during the next 20 years had many happy experiences with the children getting married and the little grandchildren coming along. There were also some sad times. Clarence lost part of his right hand in an accident while sawing lumber on the Blue Mountain. He was a farmer and also operated a flour mill at one time and owned a beautiful guest ranch on the mountain. He was also county assessor of San Juan County, Utah. Sister Frost has always been active in the church and has a strong testimony. She and Clarence filled two stake missions of two years each, two six month missions to California, and two missions to the Southwest Indian mission. The first was a regular two year mission and the last one lasted for three years as Clarence was lst counselor to Pres. Fred Turley and Seraphine was 1st counselor to Sister Turley in the Relief Society. After Clarence's death in 1965 Sister Frost was an ordinance worker in the Mesa Temple for five years. She i8 now 96 years old and is a visiting teacher in the Mesa 11th Ward Relief Society. She is the mother of five children Willamelia Barton, C Alford Frost, Kent S Frost, Pearl Lewis, and Melvin J Frost. There are 26 living grand children, 114 great grand, and 79 great great grand children. We salute you, Sister Frost!
