Da Bunny

The night before Easter, Don and I hide hundreds of jelly beans and chocolate foil eggs all over the house. Then the kids come downstairs with their baskets ready and start hunting.

This was the first year Pickle understood what was going on and she was ready to go!

The eggs were all over the place--but not hidden under anything
they are all out in the open.
Here's Gooser on the hunt:
After that, the kids got to check out the baskets the bunny brought:
Then we got ready for brunch with my mom and sister. Here are the kids all dressed up:
There was time for a little dancing before we left:
Then it was off to the brunch!

The kids outside:
A little closer:
Here's Pickle with the kids' buffet.
Gooser with the traditional "Easter hot dog!!"
Three big boys:
Pickle got a bunny!
Freaky bunny time!!
Here I am with the bunny:
Pickle hit the Peeps pretty heavy and went all punchy for the rest of the day...
Hope you had a Happy Easter!!

I hit the Peeps a little hard this year too. I have a Peeps hangover this morning.

What a fabulous easter you guys had, I like the idea of a "kids' buffet", excellent. Pickle wasn't disappointed - no bacon?

I have another "don't show Pickle" on NR II, I think you'll see the funny side.

LOVE the picture of Pickle dancing, and the expression on her face when she's hugging the bunny. But then again, I am president of the Pickle fan club. LOL! The kids all looked adorable and it looks like a ton of fun - of course! =D
