This reminds me of all my favorite things to eat at the movies when I was a kid

           Easter 1979

Mom, Dad, Michael and I at Aunt Leona’s place. 

Tante Leona’s cherished tree roses.  Easter doesn’t seem the same without her.  She always gave me a chocolate Easter bunny.  Easter Sunday was spent at church and a big family picnic afterwards.  That year, all of us cousins wore the same Easter bonnet to church.

May your families have sweet memories on this special day.

Are You Serious…Finally someone makes Marshmallow Popcorn! One of my bestfriends growing up her mom would make it and I loved it so much. Now I don’t even know where she lives so I don’t have the recipe but I have one now. I’m so excited! Thank You so much. You totally just made my day!

I only remember her house as being yellow. Great picture. Do you remember the giant blow-up bunnies she always had? I sure do miss her!!!
