In my mind, I'm still the squinty, permed-hair girl in the picture-looking just a bit frazzled from readying herself and three little ones in their Easter finery for Sunday church (I have no idea where my son's tie is).
I actually think this is the only Easter picture that I'm in...I was usually the one taking pictures. I know I'm not the only mom missing from the Family Album.
We always got a new Easter outfit that included, but was not limited to, new shoes, dress, hat, purse and gloves. Just RIDICULOUS amounts of lace, dotted swiss and white patent leather.
Between sofa cushions, inside crystal vases, on top of piano keys...I can clearly recall many of my favorite hiding spots. We would even unscrew light bulbs in lamps and replace them with eggs. On more that one occasion, the egg carton went back into the refrigerator missing an egg or two, as we would invariably lose an egg or two.
Candy baskets were a tradition as well. I had my favorite candies
Then we came home and had our big ham dinner and my favorite; Paska, a sweet Easter bread that was made by my best friend's mom.
May you and your family have a blessed Easter!
HE IS RISEN!
