Oh boy – the Easter Bunny is coming to my house – he’s never let me down in all my 15 years so I’m expecting him to show up on Sunday as always. He brings me a basket – it’s a little one – “Sammysized” of course for ME. Below are three of my past baskets! But that’s not nearly as much fun as watching my Dad hunt for Easter eggs. Tee Hee…………that’s right – Mom and Dad color Easter eggs every year and Mom hides them in the house for Dad to find. Sometimes I cheat and show him where one of the eggs is (because I’ve followed Mom around when she’s hidden them!). He calls me his “Bunny Buddy” because I help.
We think we’ll have a pretty day on Easter Sunday. Mom and Dad will fix a big fat meal too – this year Dad won the right to choose Easter dinner and while we USUALLY have turkey, we’re having DUCK this year. I wonder if I’ll like it? I’ve never had it before – Dad loves duck – Mom does NOT so that means there will be a lot of it around here!! I’m willing to give it a whirl!
We’ll also be hiding Easter eggs out in the yard for our neighbor’s little boys. We did that last year – the plastic eggs with little goodies in side and one brother gets his hidden in our front yard and the other gets his hidden in the back yard and they see who can find all of theirs FIRST!
So see why I’m excited about Easter? SO much going on…………….ducks, bunnies, eggs, baskets – and in the middle of all of that, Mom says we should remember what Easter is REALLY about. Of course we will……….ALWAYS.
