Easter Parade No. 5

So, it was 11:15 pm last night and I was filling eggs and was running out of ideas, when I remembered Jack's favorite thing in the world, Hot Wheels, would fit into the eggs.  I grabbed three of the cars and popped them into the eggs to go along with the chocolate and the "flat candy."  I thought Jack would realize that Mr. E. Bunny had just borrowed from Jack's existing stockpile.  Not so; Jack BELIEVES in the power of the Easter Bunny and was so excited that he brought Jack three exact duplicates of cars that he already had....  I can see how this may require some intellectual tap dancing on my part in the days ahead when Jack begins to look for the duplicates.  Ah well.  As Jack says:  He's a lovely bunny.

Happy Easter!


Easter Parade No. 4

One day Jack will look back and give us an untold amount of grief for passing off fruit leather as Easter candy.  I do like his description of it though....Flat Candy....


Easter Parade No. 3

Whereupon we begin to discover what Mr. E. Bunny has left Jack....


Easter Parade No. 2

And here we are heading into the kitchen, where we find our BIG surprise....


Easter Parade

And now a series of short videos from this morning's Easter Parade beginning at 6:30 am...

There was a map for Jack left by Mr. E. Bunny, as well as signed self portrait.  This is shortly after he woke us up and let us know what was happening...

Is He Part Chow?

Jack's had a cold recently, and we've finally hit on a way to get him to take cold medicine -- other than holding him down and sticking it in. Candy after a successful dose. Tonight's choice was a bright blue sucker. With predictable results. We always say it's important to brush your tongue ....
