It's Easter!  How I used to LOVE seeing that basket first thing Easter Sunday!  Marshmallow PEEPS (Yes!), jelly beans, malted milk ball robin's eggs, oh and Cadbury Eggs, and don't forget that big chocolate Rabbit!  That bunny chocolate is the best!  Don't we all eat the ears first? Haha!

Fast forward 30 years, and it's MY children that hop out of bed to find
their baskets first thing Easter Sunday morning.  And they are still filled with the same goodies as they were "back in the day".  They used to love the little Easter egg hunts we had - outdoors when we lived in Tampa, FL, and indoors up here in New York when the weather didn't cooperate.  It was always a challenge finding hiding places indoors!

This year it just won't be the same.  :(  
Kyle is visiting friends for a week or so in Asheville, NC.  Kelly has a track meet the day before Easter and won't be able to come home from college.  We won't be going out to visit with family as Jim is "on call" all weekend.  It will just be the two of us, celebrating a very quiet Easter. 

Here's a scrapbook page I did a year or so ago.  I was learning how to use the opacity option.  I cropped myself out of the original photo, enlarged it and changed the opacity to about 30 percent so it blended better into the page.  I just loved this particular kit from Scrap Girls.

The photo is from Easter 1967.  Me, Mom and Dad, the twins, Barbara
and Beverly, and Craig.  All in our new clothes, and of course, the Easter bonnets!

We may not have all the goodies we've enjoyed in past years, or family to spend the day with, but...we still certainly celebrate the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, our savior! 

Easter Blessings,
