Happy Easter everybody! For those of you with small children, I hope that once the sugar kicked in this morning you remembered to take your chocolate covered Tylenol! I came across the funniest picture of me from waaaaaay back in the day. It is probably from 1980, which would make me 3 years old. Since I have no shame, I thought I would share this pic of myself with everyone!
( You can't really tell, but my face is covered in Chocolate! Fast forward 30 years and not much has changed! )
Seeing this old picture reminded me of another classic Easter! When I was about 4 years old, we spent Easter at my Aunt Iris's home in Edmonton ( Auntie Iris is my favorite Auntie in the whole world, FYI) and she used to spoil me rotten! Imagine my surprise when I woke up on Easter morning to find a real live BABY CHICK in my Easter basket....nestled in with my chocolate goodies! ( Yes....you read that correctly. A real live BABY CHICK!) Apparently, you could buy them at the pet stores in 1981 for such occasions. I did not take the Chick back with me to Calgary, so I really do not know what happened to that little birdy! ( I hear that she went on to produce many eggs for families in the Edmonton area before retiring to KFC in Millwoods.) I wish I had a picture of that Easter classic!
