“Easter Today and Yesterday”

When it comes  to EASTER – what can one say that  would be better,  than anything ever said,  before?

Everyone does go to Church for EASTER and CHRISTMAS -but,  do they go to Church any other time of the year?

These are two days that, when you have small children, you just have to surprise them,  with all kinds of good things, candy, treats, and even toys that relate to that day, and since there, just  is not enough time in one day to do everything that, would come as a great big surprise for your children – you do have to do all of these    surprising things, in two or three days – just so that all basses are covered, and everyone feels that they have shared the  FUN and RESPECT for the day – in a way, that all FAMILY members feel very good about doing even more, for next year!

Now this PHOTO, above –  is “TOP DRAWER” stuff! All these many years of getting things ready and set up for EASTER or even any other HOLIDAY – I just think that the above set-up, for EASTER takes a “Blue Ribbon Award”  – if,  I say so myself!

That is my “Great Grand-son, LEX, himself – just  the best looking “EASTER BASKET” filled with the best of all the best of gifts for a FAMILY to have on display – in his very own basket, surrounded with such wonderful gifts, that,  when he is older and looks at these PHOTOS – “LEX”  will certainly know forever – that, from day  “ONE”  that, he was always wanted  – and  in this PHOTO,  it just  shows,  how  very much he was LOVED and WANTED –  just tops everything else in this world!


and  now…  for  a Yesterday’s Easter…


Easter Sunday and an “EASTER BUNNY” is all  foreign    information,  for a fifteenth month old baby, and we can see that,  “baby Al”  sitting in the “high-chair” just has no real idea of what all that stuff is doing on the dining room table,  and so early in the morning?

The table is set up,  for four boys,  “Tom” in high school gets the smallest basket, and  for  “baby Al”  the youngest boy,  gets the largest basket,  but it is not the size of the basket that makes you feel good,  it is all of the sweet treats that are spread out on the table,  that,  when  being  bigger and older,   you  already know , there is   more  that your hand can reach for  and grab,  “all”   without any help  as every  thing   on the table is there  for a variety of tastes,  for each boy  to enjoy  what they like,  while they   just share and even  enjoy sharing with their class mates, when they  will be  coming over!

“The early bird gets the worm”   he who gets up early, can start to try out some of those colorful and fancy wrapped candies, mostly chocolate,  who wants any thing else, but,  who will get the  big “Chocolate Bunny”  some of the larger size bunnies  are now made hollow inside, such a  big disappointment, I always enjoyed the solid “Chocolate Bunny” as you would have more of the good stuff,  and the longer it  will last,  the more you think about  “EASTER”  and all those goodies,  I can see  that you,   and your friends  are enjoying “EASTER”  too!”

That’s big brother, “Lee”  serving baby brother, “Al”   with some  of the “EASTER” treats,  the ones he knows he can give to  “baby Al”  but, he is big enough  and knows  what he likes, as  Lee has been around  a little longer, and NOW  can tell, his  little baby  brother, “Al”    all about the way,  that things happen on  “EASTER”  so nice to be the bigger brother,  the one who  NOW   knows  and has  all of  the answers  and  just knows so much  for being  a,   “so” big  four years old.

“PHOTOS” taken along time ago always,   have a good story, and  do help one to remember the “GOOD” old days!” ***    *******   D.V.
