Ah, yes, Holly, but you see when you freeze a hollow bunny, and I do with a little hole in it, usually where the ears were, you can just grab a piece and be on your way. With a solid bunny you can't do that and have to let it defrost to eat a piece.
But do you start eating from the ears down, or the bum up???
And as a kid I didn't want to cruel to the bunny, so I snapped its neck first so it wouldn't suffer. I was a weird kid.
My mom somehow got it into her head that I only like white chocolate. I prefer dark chocolate, actually. I don't even like white chocolate really. Every year she buys me white chocolate, and I just smile and thank her.
months before easter you should buy yourself a dark chocolate candy bar and go on and on and on about how much you love it and how you EVER couldn't have realized you love DARK CHOCOLATE so much more than any other kind,,
My neatest Easter memory is the sight of 40 or MORE Easter baskets spread all around my granny's dining room. She had 11 kids, of whom, 10 were married and had kids of their own. All the families brought candy at Easter and spread it amongst all the baskets.
I'm trying to create a Easter tradition with dd who is 19 months old. As a kid we would get a small gift and a chocolate but no special tradition like an egg hunt or baskets.
This year we're doing an egg hunt at grandma (with plastic eggs). I bought Emilie the cutest basket with a monkey on it (her nickname is Little Monkey) and this week we practiced the egg hunt by 'hiding' eggs all over the dining and living rooms. And next year I will try to dye eggs with her. Never done it but I'm sure it's not that difficult.
Since she's very spoiled (only grandchild), she's getting a little kitchen as a gift from my parents, books and some Lindt chocolate from her other grandparents. Instead of chocolate I bought her a Mrs Bunny Head (Easter potato head in pink).
We don't really have one. Me being Catholic and parents that pretty much shunned the bunny, then DH who only knew Easter FOR the bunny...
This is Addy's first Easter and I know she is too young to get it, but we will have a small basket for her (I bought some books and a few toys) AND I will sit on Easter morning and just talk to her about what Easter is, why it is important, and what it means to our family. DH is 100% ok with it (surprisingly) and I'm making it a tradition starting this year.
Well...our Easters are a little different than anyone's now. About 20 yrs ago, we moved out of state, about 15 hours by car. Hubby had to do some business near our old home before Easter, which is when our kids had Easter break. But we had to be home to be back at school the Monday after Easter. SOOOOO....we traveled home the whole day, the Saturday before Easter. The kids were tweens and teens by that time. We got home late, and I had their baskets done before, so we had a normal Easter Morning. But... the state where we moved to -the stores were all closed on Easter.Since we were away a whole week, we really didn't have any holiday food in the house. So I tried to find a restaurant that was open that wasn't a reserved "formal seating". We ended up at Red Lobster! It worked. The next year the kids asked to go back to Red Lobster, and it just became a funny tradition. To this day, my son, who now lives 1500 miles from us, goes to Red Lobster on Easter with his new wife. She probably thinks it's a little weird, but it became our tradition.
My kids (11 and 16) are not big candy eaters, but just mentioned TODAY they hoped they had some candy in their Easter baskets...which they had VERY little of, because we had gotten them gifts instead...so off to Target we went to scrounge whatever Easter candy was left...
We will go to my parents for Easter lunch/dinner, have an egg hunt with friends and family and just enjoy the day together
Let me start by saying, "Pugs 223, that's got to be the cutest Easter card ever "
I don't know where to start. My two year old grandson loves to do "projects", so we made a lamb with pom poms, made Gigi (my mother) a card, made Easter cookies, and about a week before Easter we dyed eggs and had a practice hunt. We did one project a day, and my daughter and I had as much fun as he did. Oh yeah, he also made his first scrapbook layout-of course he had some help form his Mimi (that's me).
Both sets of grandparents are divorced, so he gets presents or Easter baskets from each of us-its really not a competitive thing-its just doting grandparents.
We attend our church Easter egg hunt.
Today, the Easter Bunny sneaked in and left a trail of Easter grass that Jack had to follow to find his basket.(I used to do all these things when my daughter was little, but she added the Easter grass trail. She'll still be finding Easter grass this time next year.)
We all went to church as a family and then out to eat. We're lucky, because, even though both sets of grandparents are divorced, we get along and have lots of fun on these family days.
