Happyyyyeaster!!
















Nothing terribly earth-shattering to report here. The Easter Bunny came.

Side note: I don't like the Easter Bunny. Or should I say, I hate whomever came up with the concept? For some reason, I'm ok telling my kids about an old fat guy in a red suit who flies all over the world in a sleigh pulled by reindeer and delivers gifts to every kid in the world in one night. That doesn't bother me one bit. But on the other hand, I have the hardest time looking my kids in the eye and saying to them, "Look what the Easter Bunny brought you!" A giant rodent delivering chocolate replicas of himself to kids everywhere? Why, I ask. Why! I may as well sit down with them and say, "Sweeties, I think you're really, really dumb." What on earth does this have to do with the real reason we celebrate Easter? What do little tiny blades of plastic grass discovered all over my house for MONTHS after the actual day of Easter have to do with the resurrection? And don't get me started on the eggs that get hard-boiled, sloppily colored, and never eaten. Discarded! Thrown away! Ok, it's fun for them. I understand. And I wouldn't dream of taking it away from them. But just once I'd like to spend 5 minutes alone in a room with the inventor of the Easter Bunny.


Lest anyone think I'm a springtime Scrooge, let me state for the record that there is one thing I absolutely LOOOOOVE about this time of year. Two words: Cadbury Eggs. Yes, that's right. I have a weakness.


At any rate, this post was simply going to be a few words and some cute pictures of kids hunting eggs. (hunting eggs???) But I ventured off the beaten path a tad. Please forgive me. I'm coming down off of a severe Cadbury Egg high.
I was going to omit the below photo of Ben, for obvious reasons, but the more I looked at it, the more I liked the sheer "reality" of it. When ya gotta go, ya gotta go, right? I love my Benjamin!

I love Cadbury Eggs too. Yum.

You mean there isn't really an Easter Bunny? Thankgoodness my kid is smart (well, he just became smart last year). ;)

We woke up to snow this morning!!!
And then it melted, then it snowed some more, than the sun came out, then it snowed some more . . . very weird.

Thanks for that confusing weather report. Cadbury Eggs rock. Sooo glad they're a once-a-year thing.

Hello I'm Janette. I'm stalking your blog via Kristi's blog. I had to see this woman who hates dogs. (LOL) You have some cute kids there looking for eggs. I'm like you, I never liked the whole Easter Bunny story. My poor girls never went on one Easter hunt growing up. They are now 21 & 18 and doing just fine. Our oldest used to get bad headaches from chocolate so this Easter Bunny thing was just not going to work for us. So they would just get a little easter toy when they were little but that only latest a couple of years. I know, I'm a mean old Mom. BUT hey they are not bitter or angry and they don't even care. Well so they say.
Okay, sorry for the long post from some stranger you don't even know. Enjoy your day.

Those are some cute kids. And I think that Easter candy is the best candy there is. I think I overate Cadbury eggs one year because I haven't craved them like I once used to. My new favorites are the Reese's Pieces eggs and the Reese's PB cup eggs. Mmmm, peanut butter. That's good for you, right?

The whole Easter bunny thing has got to go. We need to boycott!! I mean it's just a way to get more money out of my shrinking wallet. Wouldn't it be nice to just sick back and relax and think about the resurrection on Easter Sunday. I do like my new dress though!

Who is deleting their comments???

Lookie, Janette came to visit! I love Janette, she is from Canada and flew in to St. Louis to meet me last June. :)

Kristi--what's it to ya? aberjaber made a comment that showed up like 3 times, so she deleted a couple of the dupes. Nosey, aren't you? And thank you for sending Janette to me. The more stalkers I have, the better!

Janette said...

Dear Bossy Mommy, now I'm just a stalker??? No way, I left a comment. So I came out of the closet. =) Ha!

Waves hello to Kristi!

It's like this, Janette...you started out as a stalker. Once a stalker, always a...well...you know.
