Happy Easter from my family to yours…

Apr 4, 2010

I thought I would share with you on this spe­cial day some fam­i­ly pho­tos from East­ers past. Oh how I love old fam­i­ly pho­tos.

Here are my mom and cousins Lar­ry and Jim­mie East­er Sun­day. They are stand­ing in front of my Aunt and Uncle’s house on Dog Run in Salem, WV, in 1954 or 55.

Love that the girls as well as the ladies wore gloves with their new East­er attire. I’m not sure where Mom is stand­ing for this pho­to but I am assum­ing it is either in the yard at her home or my aun­t’s. They were only 2 hous­es away from each oth­er. Which was so fun when the fam­i­ly would go vis­it in the sum­mers. I’m sure my broth­er and I cre­at­ed a path between their hous­es… we went back and forth all day long.

Here are my Dad, Aunt Lin­da, Aunt Bren­da and lit­tle Uncle Clayt in front of their house on Win­ni­cut Road, in Green­land, NH, East­er Sun­day of 1955. I remem­ber see­ing orchid cor­sages in the gro­cery stores every East­er grow­ing up (haven’t seen these in a while)… notice the white gloves peek­ing out from around my aunt Lin­da’s waist. And I love the East­er bon­nets and hat. I also noticed every­one is smil­ing for the pho­to… not an easy task with 4 kids! And to imag­ine that they had to wait to devel­op the film nev­er know­ing until it was too late if they got a good pho­to or not… I sure love dig­i­tal for that one con­ve­nience.

What a dif­fer­ence 10 years made for my mom and dad. Here is yours tru­ly… me in April of 1965 cel­e­brat­ing my first East­er. I was 3 months old.

Wish­ing you and yours a very Hap­py East­er!
