Wabbit Season

I have loved and collected rabbits, mostly of the stuffed animal kind, since long before we were even married, so naturally I love Easter!

Now before I get flamed for completely missing the true reason for Easter, and buying into the world's attempt at misdirection with all the candy & the Easter bunny, let me back up.

I'll be the first to say, next to Christmas, Easter is my favorite time of the year. Spring is here, the flowers are blooming, and above all, we set aside time out of our crazy schedules to remember and celebrate Christ's sacrifice for us on a cross and triumph over death with His Resurrection Easter Sunday.

But this post is about rabbits, specifically the Chocolate kind. And more importantly, Kyra's first Chocolate bunny experience.

One day last week, I had asked David to stop at the grocery store to pick up a few things, which he did. Curiously, some things NOT on the list showed up in the bags :-) One of them was a Milk Chocolate bunny like the one below.

Since we've tried to limit the amount of sugar and/or candy Kyra gets, and we certainly don't need it in the house, I knew we were in trouble! But her Daddy said, "Everyone needs a Chocolate bunny", so what can you do?

The following is "Chocolate Bunny Eating 101":

not too sure....I'm supposed to eat this?

I'll just try a little bit...

Can I get the whole thing in my mouth?

So Yummy!

"Look at the front of her dress! Have you not heard of bibs?" you say. All through lunch, we were wearing a bib. It was only when we were ready to get down, that the bunny was introduced, and Mommy didn't think to put said bib back on.

One word:
OxiClean! All traces of chocolate are gone, and the dress is as good as new :-)

Well, real life is calling once again. Blessings, K~

I love the chocolate bunny story and the pictures just make it even better.
