Easter Wonderful

This was the first Easter where my daughters actually realized what was going on.  I took extra steps to make it great.  I'd been talking up the Easter bunny for days and really drove home the idea that he's very "tricky" and likes to hide things from kids.  Later a relative chastised me, telling me I have the Easter bunny confused with Leprechauns, but I went with it.

I had the empty egg cartons strewn about (inside and out), half eaten raw carrots thrown around the kitchen, and eggs hidden inside and out.  I felt that the entire scene looked a little contrived, but when the girls woke up, their eyes sparkled with wonder. 

It was just priceless seeing their faces when they saw the carrots, "Mommy, the Easter Bunny stole some of our carrots!", and found the eggs, "Mommy, that silly bunny put an egg in my shoe!". 

What an amazing feeling!  The whole day was just wonderful.

Love love love seeing my girls enjoy's like I get to relive my childhood all over.


  1. I LOVE the clever idea of having carrots strewn about...I never thought of that !!
