PRECIOUS EASTER MEMORIES and D-IN-LOVE'S 29TH B-DAY

GLORY IN THE HIGHEST FOR HE HAS RISEN INDEED !!!!!

The crowd waiting for the sunrise from Chimney Rock Park this morning.The lights of the homes in the valley start to flicker on in the morning darkness.And here it comes !!!!
We had a glorious service at church this morning with standing room only it was the way Easter service should be.

Today has been a wonderful day of relaxation and reflection for me. Here is some Easter memories of mine.
Me and my brother at Easter in 1958.
My only memories of my adopted step sister are the Easter outfits we got from her every year from New York where she lived.

Fast forward many years ........
Easter 1982 and here is my #1 son with his chubby cheeks ......

Easter 1983 with #1 and #2 son who was about a month old.

Easter 1984.

Easter 1985 with the addition of a days old daughter and little sister.

1986 Easter and I'm loving those suits .....

By Easter 1987 we lost the suits.

Easter in 1988 and we are all so happy !!!

Daughter with her Easter basket in 1989.
#2 son looking for Easter eggs at Hubbie's Granny's house. There were about 15 kids on his side of the family that always met at Granny's house for Easter lunch and had an egg hunt afterward.


#1 and #2 son on Easter 1990.



Daughter and me on Easter 1990.

After 1990 I could find no pictures of the kids on Easter. Hubbie's granny died so we stopped going up there and I really can't remember what went on in the years afterward.

Fast forward 16 more years and Easter pictures begin again..Only months old at Easter 2006 G-son had fun in his new sunglasses !!

2007 Easter .
Last year 2010 dyeing Easter eggs with aunt T was really fun..

Memories are so precious !

And last but not least Happy Birthday D-In-Love ,Hope your 29th year is awesome !!!

HE IS RISEN, YES HE IS RISEN INDEED !!!!
Good Night and God Bless.
