The Magic is Gone

We are missing, for the first time in our kids' lives, the Club Easter egg hunt. There was much crying and gnashing of teeth, mostly on Maggie's part. And while it would not seem a suitable substitute, I told them the Easter Bunny knew we were going to be busy so he was coming early - complete with egg hunt.

After school, they came home and found their baskets and eggs strewn throughout the house. (It was raining, making an outdoor hunt unsavory.)

They were all thrilled with the contents including Squinkies (I had never heard of these but they are apparently all the rage), chocolate bunnies, lego, Moshi Monsters memberships and a gun for E.

When it was all done, about 2 minutes flat, Eion said "The Easter Bunny really did come early." To which Maggie responded, before we could intervene, "No he didn't Eion. It was just Mom and Dad." Hope you weren't too attached to that innocence E.

  1. This is also my daughter's first year she has missed the Easter Egg hunt. She is okay with it. The Easter Bunny is still coming on Sunday, though. She told her friend the other day 'there most certainly is' an Easter bunny when the friend asked about it. I have at least this year (she is 9).
