This film, possibly shot in the St. Paul area, features scenes in a young family's life in the 1940s. Featured are the couple, their young daughter, and the family pets (including a monkey!) around the house and backyard during wintry weather. The family's friends make appearances as well, gathering in the family's living room, at a neighborhood bar and along the local sidewalks.

The films of the Ray Jelinek Collection were rescued from a flooded trailer on Galveston after Hurricane Ike. They were donated by Jan Valentine and are permanently housed in the archives at the Alfred R. Neumann Library, University of Houston - Clear Lake.
