I'm silly today.
Acting like a monkey while wearing my new Easter dress.
Have fun at church.
Alright grandma you can blog this too.
And now a note back to Hebe.
There was a day when just about everyone had a new Easter dress for church. And some people like Grandma Wyona had a hat to go with her outfit as well. She made the hat herself ... and the dress that was to go with it.
In the really olden days, if you didn't have a new dress, then your family might be able to get you a new apron to go over your old dress. At least that is what Mae Sabey told me. If you lived in those days, you would be over 100 now. And when Mae was in her nineties, everyone in the family was still making sure that she got a new dress at Easter each year. It was a tradition.
The flowers that decorate the skirt of your dress. The big bow at the waist. How the dress makes you look so beautiful. How, no matter how beautiful you are, you want to make us laugh. I love all of that.
And yes, you did make me laugh by giving me funny poses. Even in your beautiful new Easter dress.

If those baskets are still around in a month, they will be filled with decorated eggs and Easter chocolate. I am so glad that your mom let you begin to wear your Easter dress long before Easter. And I hope you get an Easter basket to carry stuff around in -- snacks, toys you want to play with, an extra colouring book. Anything.
Now I feel like getting out something beautiful for Easter, myself.
