As my kids chirped repeatedly tonight before they went to bed: three more sleeps until Easter!! They're excited because a big-eared, fluffy-tailed, chocolate-wielding bunny will sneak into our house when everyone's sleeping and leave them candy. Me? I find it all just a bit creepy—especially when I think about what that bunny might be wearing (and how much chocolate I'll probably eat!).
Speaking of chocolate... as you can see, my chocolate lab cross, Jasper, is pretty excited about the whole thing too. Funny story: when I bought the bunny ears, the tag said they were chocolate-scented. I guess you had to be a dog to notice. And he did. Repeatedly…as I was trying to snap the photo. (No bunny ears were hurt during the making of this blog!).
Please share any of your chocolate—I mean—Easter traditions down below. Have a great weekend, Everyone!!
