Friday's Favorite Family Foto

I've been searching through old photos of Brittainy the last two weeks. I've found so many that bring back tons of memories. Today I am sharing a photo of Britt on Easter when she was four years old. What a cutie pie she was (still is...Britt I know you are reading this!) Look at the white gloves on her hands. Oh, I miss my little girl. She's all grown up!

What stands out most in my mind about this picture is how this Easter brought Brittainy more good fortune than most children have had the opportunity to experience. She and I lived in this apartment for about 10 years. Each year she and I would go to my mother's house for our Easter dinner. This particular Easter Sunday began like most. She and I woke up and Britt went through her basket to see what the Easter Bunny had brought her. Later that morning I dressed her in her finest attire and headed out for the day. When we returned, Britt found a present in the living room with a note from the Easter Bunny. He had brought her a gift that he found he had "overlooked" when he made his first delivery. For weeks all Brittainy could talk about was the Easter Bunny coming back to her house to bring her yet another gift. Oh, the thrill she had thinking she was so special that the Easter Bunny found her worthy enough for a second visit in one day.

Hi Dawn--What a sweet story! Great picture--it reminds me of growing up--my sisters and I would always have dresses, gloves and "Easter Bonnets" each year. I remember loving my patent leather shoes too!

Good morning Dawn. Brittainy is so cute with her Easter outfit and the bunny. The gloves are priceless. Your story about the extra gift from the Easter Bunny is so sweet. I too miss my small children when I think back on those years of fun times.

Dawn, Brittainy is definitely her mother's daughter. She looks just like you.

You are such a good person and the best mother. You set an example to all.

Good Morning Dawn
Oh ho special she must have felt with the Easter bunny making a second trip. That is such a CUTE story. She looks sooo cute herself.

I wonder whether she thought anything about Santa chancing to come back a second time?

Thank you for such a lovely post.
Come by my blog Dawn for a giveaway.

OH, how cute she looks! I love, love, love her gloves and pink tights.
It's true, they grow way to fast, but being able to look back and just be in the memory for awhile, is precious. Thanks for sharing!
Have a great day!

P.S. how did the kids like the picture of the spider?

What a cutie pie! I get a little sad when I look at old pictures of my Britnee. She has grown into a lovely young lady but sometimes I miss the lovely little lady.
