Lilly's Easter basket

Happy Easter! I decided Lilly was going to get an Easter basket this year along with her siblings, even if she wasn't able to eat her little chocolate bunnies. I also got a sweet cherub statute that says "LOVE" to put in her lily flower garden. (Some of the lily bulbs we planted have started to grow! I need to take a picture and post soon.)

Lilly's basket is perfect for our Little Firecracker. I got it off Ebay. My mother-in-law makes baskets and I was thinking perhaps at some point, we would have enough time for her to help me make a special basket for Lilly, in "Lilly colors."

Picture 3 is our Lilly bunny in a basket. She wasn't too impressed with being put in a basket but the pictures were cute anyway.

Pictures 4-5 are flashbacks from last year. After church service, my children took turns holding Lilly in front of a bunch of Easter lilies. (Another little girl at church - named Lily - held her too!)
I've heard a number of people say that they miss their loved ones even more around holidays. It's true. But I'm so happy for Lilly - she's having Easter in heaven with Jesus. Who could ask for more?


  1. What sweet pictures and sweet memories! Thank you for all your posts. I love to read them and knowing that Lilly will always be remembered! Keep on keeping the memory of Lilly ALIVE!!! She is truly a blessing for all who knew her!

    Hope you and your family had a wonderful and peaceful Easter!
