Easter Memories

Easter 1955

Easter 1955

My sister Madeleine and I are closer in age to each other then we are to our other sister and brother. When we were quite young about 3 & 4, people would often ask if we were twins. We did not usually dress alike, except  I remember on most Easter Sundays we would wear the latest “hand-me-downs” from our step-cousins Irene and Joanie. They were what I would have called “matchy – matchy”.  For the longest time I did think that Irene and Joanie were twins because their clothes always seamed to match. Gosh those hats are awful. I remember those skirts were a corduroy and so were those hats. The net petticoat was part of the outfit so I guess we had to show them off also. Quite the look back then. Easter morning meant going to St. Paul’s church in Visalia before coming home for our egg hunt either at home or over at Aunt Babe’s. Easter Dinner at Aunt Babe’s was a table set up in her back yard.  I was looking for that iconic photo we have where we are all around the table, even Grandpa Francis our great grand father was there in the background. I do not think the lawn had been cut which of course was better for hiding the eggs.
