We have this 'tradition'...a picture taken on
Holy Saturday evening posed with the basket of dyed eggs.
I guess I'm glad the days of pouting and crying for pictures has passed...
but now we are in the silly stage!
The "pretend you are listening to Mom" stage even as you bounce around!
The "Mom gives up" and just takes a boring old pose phase.
The 'traditional' basket now filled with candy shot....
not taken a bit seriously!
The "I want sunglasses" pose.
The "you want us to stand WHERE?" pose.
Back to the sillies.....
The "okay, I'll be good for a minute" pose.
The "if my sister was good then so will I" pose.
The "I still want sunglasses and NO I won't hold hands" pose.
The "how's this for stunning" pose!!
The "we can do flowers" pose!
The "just one more piece and then we'll smile" pose.
The "let's be cheesy' pose that Mom turned into....
"quick zoom and catch the shot" pose!
We had a lovely day with family but those pictures would be on Auntie Peggy's camera...
and YES, Julia asked for me to buy that dress...
and YES, she WANTED to wear that dress for Easter services!!
Maybe, oh maybe the tomboy stage is subsiding?? Not influencing any decisions on her choices ... except
I did buy the dress on the spot the MINUTE she asked me so maybe she has an inkling of how
happy I am to see the 'inner girl' peeking out from under the t-shirts and jeans??
