Easter 1963

When I was a child, my mother would dress me and my sisters all alike on Easter.  We would always make a big impression at church, especially after we had had our fill of chocolate eggs and jelly beans.  Here I am with 3 of my sisters (the youngest wasn't born yet) in 1963 or 64.  I'm the tall one in the back.  The dresses were blue gingham with white lace around the skirt.  We had to wear them with itchy scratchy crinoline slips.  And of course, we all had matching white patent shoes and ankle socks.  I think mom let us each choose a different white patent purse that year.

Happy Easter to you all, especially to my family!  Ah, the memories.

This photo is PRICELESS! I can't believe you were in a family of 5 girls :-) (Well 6 counting your mother.) Were there any boys? Your poor - I mean, lucky - father :-)

And my word verification is BLEST.

My mother dressed my sister and I alike for Easter too. What a precious photo to have to keep your memories alive years later! Have a lovely Easter!

No boys! My dad used to call us his sorority. And he never had a chance in our house with one bathroom.
