Mellow Yellow Easter--We had a great, mellow Easter with family. The Easter Bunny came in the morning and hid a bunch of eggs. He's got a good sense of humor. The kids cracked up to find eggs in creative places, like under the invisibility cloak in their Harry Potter Lego Hogwarts.
It's been a fun psychology study to see the kids' letters to mythical, magical creatures evolve as they age. Now at 7 & 10 their questions to Santa, the Tooth Fairy and The Easter Bunny are really funny and fascinating. They left him a plate of baby carrots with sparkly gel frosting and a cup of carrot juice.
The bunny wrote back and answered all their questions. Our Easter Bunny's name is E.B.-Eggbert Bunnikins. He could deliver carrots instead, but kids get disappointed. Why doesn't a chick deliver the eggs? Chicks are anarchists at heart--"egging" each other on and "laying" around, so if you want the job done right, you need a rabbit.
I'm happy they're not too old to love dying eggs. Du-Jay made a hilarious yellow story egg depicting the Easter Bunny getting seen.
The kids found their baskets and loved their new DS games, candy and Cozy Hugs-real lavender stuffed pets you can heat up for aromatherapy/ a warm snuggle. Sagezilla named her new friend Porkchop, AKA: Piggy. Du-Jay's lion is Lionel.
