The Easter Bunny Isn't As Dumb As He Looks!

The Easter Bunny's feet
Go hop, hop, hop,
While his big pink ears
Go flop, flop, flop.
He is rushing on his way
To bring our eggs on Easter Day,
With a hop, flop, hop, flop, hop.

As a tradition, each year we recycle Sugar's Easter basket. In fact, her basket was MY basket I had as a child. Saturday night, we climbed up in the attic, and dug out the basket, plastic grass, and plastic eggs. Together we set them out on our hearth for the Easter Bunny to find and fill up. It was especially fun this year, as Sugar is finally able to understand a little bit, and get excited. She was plenty eager to go to sleep so the Easter Bunny could come.



Sugar Bear was very please to awake, and find many things in her basket this morning. There was a tense moment then none of the plastic eggs wanted to open up and share, but finally a few literally exploded open to spill jelly beans and fruit snacks all over the floor. We had a little discussion about what is and isn't okay to eat after it has been on the floor. It seems this concept is difficult to comprehend. Jelly Bean....YES! Yogurt....NO!



The big bubble wand was a hit....until she realized it isn't any easier to blow bubbles with and creates even a bigger soapy mess on the floor. I guess SIZE really doesn't matter, huh?



It certainly seems the Easter Bunny knew a little something about the weather forecast this year. He is finally catching on....that silly rabbit. He left Sugar Bear a VERY special, and completely appropriate gift this morning.....an UMBRELLA! High fives for that clever little bunny.



There is nothing like Easter egg hunting in the rain.....we should know. This is the third rainy Easter in a row.....but this time...it was different. How can you be sad about the rain, when it just gives you the perfect opportunity to try out your new adorable umbrella????






I am a bit of a less is more sort of person, I am certain I spent less than $10 on her entire Easter stash this year. The book, I got at Good Will for .99 cents. SCORE! The rest were also about a dollar each, except for the Umbrella, that was $5. It blesses my heart that Sugar found such joy in this simple little tradition. One of my favorite things about being a parent, is the opportunity to re-experience the thrill of good old holiday fun.





I do hope you all had a fabulous Easter Weekend. Sugar Bear and I are still on the mend. It is my hope that this week, through rest and relaxation (it is Spring Break), we will kick this sickness to the curb once and for all. Cross your fingers for us. We are REALLY trying to look on the bright side.

5 bucks well spent on the umbrella. Sugar looks real cool with it :)

bellevelma said...

What a cute umbrella! I wish they had stuff like that when I was a kid. Sadly, Snags would disown me if I got him something like that now.

Don Mills Diva said...

Wonderful picture - glad you had a Happy Easter and I am off to click Top Mama for you!

Michele (Rocky Mtn.Girl) said...

Well, it looks like you had a funtastic Easter! The umbrella is too cute for words! =)

CMB said...

Happy Easter! Sounds like you had a great one.

smilnsigh said...

Very wise and frugal Easter Bunny. He was thus, when he came next door to some of our Grandchildren too.

But... did you leave a red carpet out for him? -giggles- *Somehow,* I bet the Easter Bunny left lots-a-loot at this ugly McMansion, here in town. I betcha' he'd not dare, not to! ,-)

Love the umbrella! It is surely going to get much use.

I am definitely a 'less is more' ...kids have so much stuff these days!

Happy late Easter.

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

I love that you are able to use a basket that you had as a kid. That's a fantastic tradition!

Autumn said...

Oh soggy Easter... what would we do without the rain on Easter? LOL Sugar looks very pleased with her loot! Good job Easter Bunny.

Deb - Mom of 3 Girls said...

Yep, that's one smart bunny! And one very cute umbrella. It looks like Sugar had a wonderful Easter - I hope that both of you are feeling better soon. :)

Jenty said...

I love the umbrella!!
Looks like she had a ball looking for eggs :)

Groovy Mom said...

I love that umbrella! I'd forgotten all about those cool clear plastic umbrellas with the deep dome. I had one when I was a little girl.

Jo Beaufoix said...

So glad you're both starting to feel better. And Sugar looks so cute with her brolly (Brit slang for Umbrella). I love that you have your little old Easter basket. We don't do the Easter bunny so much here, though E and M did have an egg hunt in their granny's garden with their cousins ME and baby J. That was fab.

Cute overload here! Love the umbrella too. Super fun time.

Laura said...

I hope you have a great Spring Break and are all feeling healthy and rejuvenated soon!!

Amy said...

I am thinking that the Easter Bunny is rather smart!

These are some lovely photos. You sure can capture the moment beautifully!

I LOVED my umbrella like this when I was little. I'm sure my mom got tired of me wanting it open all the time, but she was a good sport about it. It looks like Sugar will love hers just as much as I loved mine.

Pam said...

Aw, Happy Easter to you and Sugar Bear!

Donetta said...

Good Morning I do so hope you two get to feeling stronger and more in the pink. She is growing up Her little face is filling out very nicely. Love the umbrella. It is begining to get hot here.
Corey your a gem and a treasure. remember to be kind to yourself this week.

holly said...

with an umbrella like that, i'd want it to rain every day. okay, well not every day. i would still golf. but i'd take the umbrella with me for fashion sense. :)

Childlife said...

What a cute umbrella - especially when you pair it with Sugar! Glad to hear you're both starting to feel better and hope this week is much better for you.

Michelle said...

Looks like it was a fun Easter despite the rain! That umbrella is too adorable...Kayla would love one like that...although we don't get much rain in NM!

I recycle Kayla's basket and plastic eggs too :)
