  1. Wow, does this bring back memories…easier being Gramma and Granpa Bunnies…send card with money….

  2. Wow, this makes me laugh. Caroline might be like me…ready to get the treats at 2Am

  3. YAY for picking up the poop. Not that I don’t have similar thoughts 🙂 Easter morning is one time I’m glad my kids know about “the Easter Bunny.” We just hid eggs at 8:00 while they were in the next room.

  4. The Easter Bunny forgot to give my 2yo her basket till after church, when the mommy needed a “tweat” to give said 2yo for peeing on the potty. Oh boy, Laura, do I have a treat for you! Here’s your Easter basket!

  5. Oh, you are so creative!

    I told my kids the Easter Bunny left eggs in a big bag for mommy and daddy to hide later in the day. B/c I like my sleep. 😉
