Easter 1974. Marie (age 3) finding her basket. She was very excited!
We loved this tradition. I had the same basket for a long time, as long as I lived at home, and yes, I still have it! I loved the smell of all the chocolates combined in the straw. It was a heavenly aroma!

Leona refused to take off her winter coat. I'm wearing the green smocked dress, with Marlene in front of me, and Marie in my Dad's arms. I think my Dad was quite proud of his family of young women.
I just love this picture of Marie and my Dad!
Here we are in our Easter finery, holding our full baskets. I think my Mom had fun putting them together the night before, and hiding them all over the house. They wound up in the most interesting places.
