Leo and I wish all the blessings of this Easter season for each and every one of you!
We were reminiscing about Easters in the past, and we thought we’d share some old photos with you.
This picture was taken when I was eleven years old. I remember because that was the first year I was allowed to wear “heels.” My mother always had beautiful flowers blooming at Easter, so I naturally got my love of flowers from her. I grew up in a community called Cross Roads, but it was spelled as two words.
I was interested in cooking from a young age because I remember making this cake that year. I stuck a chocolate bunny in the middle of the cake. See the hat? I still have a thing for hats and love to wear them to this day. I didn’t buy a new Easter outfit this year, but I did buy a new hat.
Our small town has a springtime celebration. It’s called the Egg Scramble Jamboree, and many of the townspeople get into the spirit and decorate their homes.
This year’s grand marshal was Dr. Sydney Griffin, our beloved, retired family physician from Lamar. One year Leo and his brother Woody were the grand marshals.
There were floats and beauty queens in the parade,
When the parade was over, Leo and I took my mother to the antique car show and to the vendor displays downtown. It was a beautiful day for one of our modern day traditions.
