In My Easter Bonnet

Happy Easter 1956!  

I found these
wonderful Easter Sunday photos of my
parents all dressed up ready to go to
church for Easter Sunday with their darling
children.  One of my favorite parts of
Easter as a child was a new dress and an
Easter bonnet, new shoes, a new purse and
gloves.  How I wish I had some of those
treasures, especially my little tiny gloves.

This is my mother with my sister Jean on
the left and my brother Fritz on the right.

Dad is dressed up and looking fine in his pink tie.
I love how it matches Jean's beautiful bonnet
and coat.  Isn't Fritz's jacket beautiful and what
about that tiny bow tie?

Here we are two years later and I have arrived,
and am in my pretty yellow jacket and bonnet.  
I love the look on Jean's face!
Again, Dad has a tie that is matching Jean's

What treasures to find. It is so fun to be
searching for these photos and the stories
they tell. 

I hope you have a wonderful Easter Sunday.
What a wonderful time of year as we 
celebrate the resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ.

It is my favorite time of year right after Christmas.

May you feel the joy and hope of the good news
that He lives!  I bear testimony of that fact and
rejoice in it.  That is the Good News!

Happy Easter.


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. What precious photos! Have a beautiful Easter!

  2. Everyone is looking so cute in these photos. Mom always really dressed us up at Easter. I loved the purses, hats, gloves, and dresses.

  3. Happy Easter, Jacqueline! These photos are adorable. Yes, new dress and bonnet for Easter. Every year!
    My sister sent me a photo she recently came across. Black and white, but we are hunting Easter eggs on the lawn. I've obviously taken a tumble and am sprawled on the grass. So much for the Easter dress!
    Enjoy your day! ~ Sarah

  4. Hi lovely lady.
    It's been a long time for me coming over to see all the posts. I am loving your Easter story so sweet. I am hoping you and your family had a wonderful Easter Sunday.

  5. Wonderful photos. I remember the new Easter outfit, getting a spring coat, hat and dainty white gloves. Happy Easter.

  6. I just saw the Kardashians' photos on their way to Church. It said they were going to Church in the title or I would never guessed by looking at the pictures.
    And then THIS. YOU and your Lovely Family. I feel the strength and trust coming back into my shocked soul ahahahah

    This is too lovely and this is the way you raise children to belong to Him. By making it a celebration. By making it lovely and beautiful.
    Small wonder the blessings of those times lasted until today in your family.
    Be Blessed,

  7. What a wonderful memory in these priceless photos! Just the glowing faces and the happy children are testament to the strong background of faith and family you were raised in.

    No wonder you have gone on to have such a wonderful family life, prospering in Grace and Faith.

    Simply lovely, and I know they're amongst your greatest treasures.
