My first Easter

Easter, a time for spiritual renewal and seasonal rebirth, spring! Dying eggs at the kitchen table, searching for hidden Easter baskets around the house (we never had an outdoor hunt that I remember), chocolate bunnies, sunrise breakfast at church by the youth group, church service, Easter dinner,... all to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. He is Risen!
I remember many matching dresses with my sister, shinny shoes, a few Easter bonnets thrown into the mix and usually a family photo once Mom had us all dressed up and ready for church. These photos were taken 50 years ago, of the Johnson's, in our own living room.
