Easter excites me. It’s a special day of celebration. Not only do we celebrate the hopeful arrival of Spring, but we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. What could be better?
As tulips, bonnets, and bunnies usher in bright skies and warm weather, children hunt for eggs and binge on sugar right before church. Why doesn’t the Easter bunny wait until after church to bring the chocolate and jelly beans?
Notice how I managed to squeak two years out of FringeBoy’s outfit? Too bad I can’t do that this year.
I have an Easter dress (not the one shown) that has already seen four Easters. Talk about getting your money’s worth! Last year, I took a break and wore the dress in the picture above. It’s reminiscent of a stained glass window and I hate it now. So, old faithful will see her fifth Easter in 2009.
