Pre-Easter Day!

Hippity Hoppity



It’s the day before the Bun lands…..that’s right – the EB (stands for Easter Bunny OR Elusive Bunny) will be making rounds tomorrow in the wee hours………and many of my friends have been on the search for the REAL EB…….to no avail.  I think he leads a very secluded life and looking for him is an impossibility!   Now I know that Easter means SO MUCH more than bunnies and eggs and candy and treats…’s about something HUGE that happened long, long ago that is much more significant than eggs.


But in my little life, on Easter morning the Bunny leaves me an Easter basket and even more fun than that, I get to watch my Dad running around the house in his pajamas looking for HIS Easter eggs…….trust me…….it’s definitely worth getting excited about.

Mom is expressly forbidden from taking photos of this event……it’s one of those urban legends that will remain a legend and I’ll just have to describe the scene to you on Easter Sunday for you to “get” the experience.

The egg hunting thing happens before ANYTHING ELSE on Easter Sunday.   That’s right – ANYTHING (except of course me getting my breakfast).   Dad will stumble around the basement with his basket searching for the eggs the EB left him during the night, THEN my parents have Easter morning breakfast, then go to church, then come home and Mom prepares “THE BIG MEAL”……this year it’s turkey and trimmings!   Oh boy – I do enjoy a bit of the bird on rare occasions.

Not everyone celebrates Easter of course…………….many of my friends are celebrating Passover…….which began April 14th and will end April 22nd.    I celebrate with everyone………..but for me, Easter is almost here and I just can’t WAIT to find out what the EB brings me this year in my little basket!   Maybe bacon???????

      Hi Dezi! It’s pretty funny seeing my Dad with his Easter basket BUT Mom says every human has a little bit of “kid” in them – Easter brings out my Dad’s “inner kid” I guess!!! I hope you, your sister and your Mom have a SUPER Easter too….full of love.

      Hugs, Sammy


  2. Sounds like a fun celebration, S. My new Easter toy is hidden in the closet. I’m not supposed to know that, but I am suddenly very interested in that closet, every time the door is opened. Mom will celebrate Easter by eating candy in the morning, just like she did when she was little.

    Love and licks,

      Hi Charles! What a nice surprise having you stop by my bloggy to say howdy doo and mention that wonderful substance that steals my heart whenever I smell it………….BACON!!!!!!! I’m getting some for breakfast tomorrow morning and had it this morning too – it’s a “double bacon weekend” around here! I hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter Charles……’s such a pleasure to know you at Scouts!

    Hehehe you make a cute EB Sammy,maybe you know the EB but don’t realise….hehehe,xx Speedy

    It’s great to celebrate with a “family-ritual”, Sammy :o) I’m the only one who goes on egg-hunt tomorrow. The staff will get their easter baskets via post-guy, probably they had too much things on their wishlist that the Easter Bunny threw the towel in. I’m curious if I will find my basket on the same place like last yea or do you think the EB will hide it every year on a different place? have a super caturday!


    • 11

      Easy I bet the EB will hide your basket in a brand new spot this year – maybe a spot you would never think to look!!!! EB likes to surprise us you know! You’ll have to blog about your Easter celebration….I’ll be anxious to hear about it!!

      Hugs, Sammy

    Since your dad has only forbidden your mom from taking pics about his Easter Run, you could do it – or even a video! I’m sure it will be at least as glorious event as this run:


    • 13

      WOW……that video truly IS a glorious run – especially when I think of the “Easter Egg Hunts of the Past” from my Dad… comparison really!!! HAHAHAHAHA

      Hugs, Sam

    Sounds like a fun morning at your house, Sammy! My step-sister, Gypsy, and I both LOVE turkey (and chicken) too!
    I’m on my window seat this morning, watching it rain….
    Love, Sundae


    • 15

      No rain here Sundae…………just a pretty quiet morning and supposed to be tomorrow too which is good – I wouldn’t want the Easter Bunny to get wet feet when he comes to bring my basket!

      Love, Sammy

      Enjoy your Easter feast…..
      Love, Sammy and his Mom

    Sammy, you make a really cute bun, especially with your kitty tail. Sampson sent Astrid these really cute plastic eggs with shapes cut out of them, and we think Mom plans to fill some with treats and some with nip and hide them for us to find. At least that’s the rumor. Enjoy that pawsome meal. Have a blessed Easter, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
