Easter Photos From the Past

I am not very good at scanning....but I found a baby album of mine my Mom gave me awhile back and I took pictures of a couple of the pictures in it from childhood Easter's.

The picture above would have been Easter 1959. My brother would have been about 9 months old and I would have been 4 years old. My Mom is holding my brother.

This is my Dad and I. I would have been three in this photo.I even have a purse and headband to match my smart powder blue Easter outfit. In the "olden" days, we always had a new matching outfit for Easter. The slide in the background was later used in our wading pools...we would rocket down it will the hose turned onto it into the wading pool....what fun!

Also if you have a look at my sidebar, you will see a new childhood photo added. I was wearing a dress I wore when I was a flower girl in one of my cousins weddings. I have a gold bracelet on which was my gift from the bride for being in the wedding party. It was a busy year or so, I was a flower girl 3 times!

Linda, I love your old photos, esp the one in the side bar! You'll have to bring them over, and I can scan them in properly, with full resolution. It's easy but time consuming. It takes about 3 minutes for each photo.

ooo..color photos! They are wonderful. I love your mom's red shoes, and you were so lucky to have a real slide. My dad would make a slide for us out of the coal chute when he wasn't using it to load the coal in. But we never had a wading pool! Your pictures are precious.. thanks for joining the parade and sharing them with us.

How cute in all of your finery. I love your header with your "chatty" friends all decked out for Easter.

These pictures of us when we were little are so important to remember who we are and where we came from. Love the pics. Memory lane is much more fun than today!
