我妈全力以赴都是为了每年外出到白宫庆祝复活节的活动。她很喜欢大家一起化妆打扮成兔子的样子来庆祝复活节。有一年,她做了个巨型的复活节篮子。而其它的几年里,她做了个旧式的火车头引擎和帆船给我们推着或坐上被推着来玩。我们经常是备受瞩目的注意人物。摄影记者们的长短火炮的镜头踊 簇着我们兜圈圈照相。我们面带笑容、幸福地挥手向人群致意。这是一个多么好的方式来度过这有意义的一天呀!

The news(我们的照片上了新闻)
Afterward we would race home to look at the evening newspaper. Often we were front-page news! Easter Monday was the only time we were interested in watching the news. We couldn’t wait to see if we were on TV. “Look, look, there we are!” we would shout as we went back and forth between TV channels. Family members from all across the country would call to say that they had seen us on TV or in the newspaper. How fun to be famous! Even if it was only for a day.
随后,我们竞相飞奔跑回家看当天的晚报。一般来说,我们的照片常是被刊登上头版新闻!复活节的星期一是我们唯一感兴趣看的新闻。我们等不及我们是否上了电视新闻节目。“看,快来看,我们上了新闻啦!”我们一回到家,就大声吵嚷着把电视频道转来转去。家里所有的成员都收到全国各地打来的电话,告诉我们,他们在电视或报上看到了我们的尊容。成了公众人物多有趣噢!尽管它只有一天。(不在乎天长地久,只在乎曾经拥有!)
