Think Back Thursday - Easter

The purpose of Think Back Thursday is to link up a photo post about something from the past. You can reach back all the way to your childhood and bravely post pictures of you in your wild clothes and hair styles or post something from last year and tell us about it. I'm not picky. Hey, even yesterday was the past... LOL I hope you will join us.

Today, March 28 - Easter

What do you think of when you think of Easter?
The ressurection of Christ, Easter services at church, new spring dresses, candy?
I found many Easter pictures so I will have more for next year.

What could be better than new spring dresses and hats
Easter 1988
I had been married almost 4 years and Rachel had just turned 2 years old.

 This was taken on the porch of my mother's home before church.

The rest of these photos were taken outside my sister's home after church services. It was evidently a warm spring day by then.
 Adorable daughter in pink,
love the hat too!

Easter 1999

Did you notice the dress I was wearing in the pictures above.
Now, 11 years later, that little girl in pink is wearing the dress I was wearing in the 1988 pictures.
My how time flies.
They grow to quickly.

After church an Easter egg hunt in our backyard

Christopher and Uncle Dave

After collecting the eggs we divided up the candy so it would be even

It's easier to clean up the boy from the sticky mess then to clean up the clothes

ahhhhh, the memories
my sweet babies
now all of them mostly grown
looking back makes me miss these days

Now it's your turn.
Future Themes
April 4 - School (any activity you want: public, private or homeschooling)
April 11 - Celebration (any you want, achieving a goal like leveling up in a class or winning an award or even a birthday)
April 18 - Outdoors (any activity that takes place outside)
April 25 - Showers/Rain/Rainbow/Kids Playing in the Rain
May 2 - Flowers (April showers see April 25, bring May flowers you know... so show me some flowers... they don't have to be May Flowers they can be any flowers)

Here are the Rules for participating:
  • It can be about you, about your kids, about your parents, whomever. You can include video, I will not exclude video alone posts, but I prefer them along with photos, as this is a photo meme. I am doing a weekly theme now. That should help narrow it down from the myriad of photos we all have. For ideas check out the other posts in my label Think Back Thursday. 
  • Link up below. Please use a permalink that sends readers directly to the correct post. If you are not sure what that is click the word permalink for an explanation. 
  • Mention my blog and offer a link back. This is a requirement to take part and a kind gesture to me your hostess as well as your readers--they will know where to join in the fun, too. You can put the Think Back Thursday button on your site and in your post. You will find it on my right sidebar. Please use it to link to my site, to spread the word about my meme. Using the button will help others know how to find me and how to join. Tell others to click on the button in your post to find us here.
  • Leave me a comment. First so that you can let me know what you think of my pictures and secondly so that I will know a new post has been linked up and I can come visit your blog and comment on your photos. 
Join me!
