Easter 2016

Easter was a delightful one. Well, mostly. I had laryngitis and completely lost my voice. That was kinda sad. I wanted to partake in all of the fun but I ended up being a silent observer. Which leads me to my pro-Mom tip: do stuff for holidays, like, way in advance. Luckily, I was overly excited and I…err…consulted with the Easter Bunny…and we put the kid’s baskets together weeks ahead of time. I’m so thankful because all I wanted to do the week before Easter was sleep. Then? A huge record breaking snowstorm hit. I’m talking an excess of 20″ of snow in one day. It was insanity. As you can imagine, helping E. Bunny fill baskets (ie driving to Target in blizzard conditions) was not an option. I spent all of my energy shoveling ourselves out of our driveway instead.

Anyway! The Easter Bunny came!

The baskets were a tad lop-sided but I’m sure next year, when Cade has an inkling of what’s going on, they’ll be even and fair.

The discovery!

Amelie got her first chocolate bunny! Oh how I loved watching their excitement. Cade didn’t much care but Amelie was thrilled!

Of course, I decorated and have a dark photo of it to show you, duh.

I wanted to show you my outdoor decorations but they were all buried in snow. Just imagine a herd (a posse? a family? a pack?) of bunnies staked into different parts of the front yard to accompany our egg tree and you’ve got it. It really wasn’t that spectacular.

Amelie’s best friend (and her family) came over for a snowy Easter egg hunt in the backyard.

That’s another thing I’m really glad the Easter Bunny did ahead of time – fill the eggs! A squirrel got a few of the eggs but overall, it was a success!

Amelie had a blast, blizzard and all. Cade was indifferent.

And then, Easter was over. But, you bet your fluffy bunny butt I went to Target and Michaels and scored some serious Easter clearance. The end.

  1. Happy Easter! Group of bunnies is called a herd or fluffle. Fluffle is cute. Love that your decorations and baskets were a hit! I know your blog is a hit with me. I feel part of your lives! Thank you. Lv mamap
