I use to love the preparation before Easter.  It meant a shopping trip to buy a pretty new dress, usually a 'Cinderella' brand dress.  When I was younger my sister and I would get matching dresses.  In addition, we use to get new patent leather shoes, lace trimmed anklet socks or tights, a coat, little white gloves and a glorious Easter hat, elastic band and all.  We would happily get ready for Sunday School on Easter morning dressed in our Easter best. 

Happy Easter!


  1. Picture of the twins at 2 is my favorite

  2. Betty, I'm not sure I have seen that picture. I will have to check it out the next time we visit.

  3. Thank you, Kristin and Cynthia. Since my sisters live far from me; it was nice to remember our Easters together.

  4. A tradition you continued...I always loved getting a new outfit for Easter!
