The Bunny…The Bunny…

When my oldest son was a toddler, Veggie Tales was a popular cartoon.  We watched all of their episodes and listened to their music.  One of their Easter songs was about eating too much Easter candy, a chocolate bunny in particular.  To this day, I can’t see a bunny or think about the Easter Bunny without hearing ” the bunny, the bunny, woh I ate the bunny, I didn’t eat my soup or my bread just the bunny, the bunny…..”.  Well, today was the annual Easter Egg Hunt and now I have that song stuck in my head!

My oldest thought he was a little too old for the festivities, so he didn’t end up in front of the camera.  My middle child was digging the Easter Bunny!

This year, there was a special golden egg for each age group.  Well, since there was only one golden egg out on the floor, I figured it was probably worth something special.  I walked over and told my middle child “Be quiet about his like a secret, but when they say go, run out and get the golden egg”.  He whispered back “Ok, I see it!”  Then he yells (mind you my ear is right by his face) “Why should I go after the golden egg?”  So much for the secret!!  Finally when it was his turn, they made them stand facing away from the eggs, hid the golden egg and yelled “Go”.  He turned, quickly scanned the eggs and took off running as fast as his little body would go.  Score!  He made it to the Golden Egg first! He took first place for the amount of eggs collected and got a special prize for the Golden Egg.

His little sister wasn’t quite sure about the Easter Bunny, but enjoyed the egg hunt.

This seems to be the magical year for all of her holidays.  She was a little too young last year to fully enjoy them.  She didn’t win any prizes because she was too interested in telling us the color of every egg she picked up before putting it in the bucket.  After looking through her eggs, she was off to get a pink bunny painted on her cheek!

I look around the room at the smiles on my 3 children, the bunnies painted on 2 of their cheeks and the big chocolate bunny my oldest won and think Life Is Good………and………”the bunny, the bunny, woh I ate the bunny…..”. :)
