Wishful Wednesday ....Easter


'I wish' .... I could re-live one Easter memory from my childhood, and it would be the Easter we moved into our new house!


March/April 1993 was a BIG year ..... we had just moved during the school year, which was a tad bit scary for a 7 year old.  The worst part about it was moving away from Abby, my next door neighbor and best friend in the entire world.  Thankfully, I had my chin held high because we were moving to a BIGGER house with my bedroom being on the second floor (super far away from mom and dad's room), and the most exciting thing .... A POOL!!!


I remember it like it was yesterday!!  We had just moved a week before Easter, we got all dressed up in our fancy Sunday Easter outfit, and there was ab absolute thrill of hunting for eggs in our new backyard ..... pure joy in itself.  I sadly admit I was such a baby and threw a fit because my big brother swooped up majority of the eggs.  I just didn't understand how he could run around the pool so fast and gather all the eggs from the rest of the backyard.   After the hunt, Mom made him give me some of his eggs since my basket was bare.  Haha -- I wish I could relive this moment RIGHT NOW and be able to hold my own in that backyard and pickup more chocolate candy than him!!!!



The other thing I remember vividly this same week as an adorable 7 year old :) .... was going to a NEW school.  The first day at my new school was April 1st!!!!  Little did I know that the teachers had arranged an April Fools joke and were switching classrooms for the first hour of the day.  Here I am .... a new student, entering a strange classroom, and I was totally confused when a teacher came in yelling April Fools.  I was like "huh!!"  


To relate to me as a little kid dealing with sibling rivalry, 
I will leave you with these photos my mom just sent me .....

1992 - LOVES IT
just priceless in our colorful outfits!


1993 - This photo cracks me up.
Glad I am the ONLY one ready for the photo!!

That would be SUCH a sucky day to start school! I probably would've broken down in tears and sat in the bathroom all day.

I would go back to any Easter when my Grandma was still alive. I miss her alot. I loved Easter as a kid too- getting all dressed up and wearing a bonnet, and hunting for eggs. So happy!

I moved from MA to TX when I was 8 and I thought it was literally the end of my world. And it was. Until I made friends and learned I got to keep my old ones. My very best friend and I have not lived in the same state since then and shes still my BEST friend and my maid of honor in my wedding! I know thats not what this blog is really about... ;) just had to share.

Teresa said...

Oh how funny that your mom made your brother give you some of HIS eggs!
I bet you were ALL smiles then!
Wonder what his face looked like! Ha..haha!
My favorite Easter memories are of waking up knowing that THE EASTER BUNNY had hidden candy allll over the living room!
Mom would sit in a chair and watch as we searched for the candy...and she would say...
"hot...hot...HOT!!!!...cold....real cold...frozen!!!!"
Oh how funny!
I played that game well into adulthood! ;o)
Hey...I need to play that with Greg Sunday morning!
xxooxx

Tracy-Girl said...

That is so cute... I love the pictures! :) I wish I could relive the days of thinking the easter bunny was real... and we would wake up early and look around the yard for all the eggs that were hidden!
