Easter Sunday in Pittsburgh

I turned 34 this month, the reason for the birthday balloon in the background, but the Easter basket tradition never gets old for my parents.

Grandma in Rollers

Grandma used to do this herself, every Saturday, for long as I can remember, but needs help these days.

I haven't witnessed this ceremony in years. When I used to stay at my grandparent's place on Saturday nights, this was part of the ritual of preparation for Sunday morning's 8 am mass, along with Grandma passing out cones of White House (cherry vanilla) ice cream and Pap watching Lawrence Welk and maybe Austin City Limits if he could stay awake.
