Let’s see, where were we when we last left off…
7:24 am – Oldest Bunny decides to change attitude
7:27 am – Shoes are on and baskets are empty – let the games begin. First up, the front yard.
7:38 am – The backyard. Happiness overtakes sleepiness when candy bar is found.
7:39 am – “There’s even an egg up here!”
7:47 am – The examination begins.
This is the dumper. Each egg is opened and emptied into a pile.
The examiner. Each egg is opened. Looked at. And closed again. The candy will be removed at each eating session. This technique is quite frustrating to Momma Bunny when she’s searching for a quick treat in the pantry.
The Eater. Open an egg. Eat whatever’s inside – all of it – as fast as you can.
8:02 am – Yep, she’s still eating.
8:25 am – Momma Bunny jumps into the shower throwing Dad the kids outfits, yelling that they need to leave in 35 minutes if they are to get to the 9:15 service.
8:30 am – 8:55 am – Pleading, negotiating, threatening all take place.
9:14 am – Bunny family slides into pews two rows from the back.
9:17 am – Momma Bunny pulls out a pad of paper and a pen for Littlest Bunny to play with.
9:19 am – Momma Bunny is tracing Littlest Bunny’s hand for entertainment.
9:24 am – 30 pieces of paper later Littlest Bunny decides she needs a new distraction so Momma Bunny pulls out some magnets and paper clips.
9:26 am – The priest tells all of the children of the church to answer him this question, “Doesn’t the church look beautiful now with all of the flowers in it?”
Middle Bunny shouts out, “No!”
Momma Bunny quickly brings her hand to Middle Bunny’s mouth while Poppa Bunny gives him a stern look.
9:28 am – Oldest Bunny and Middle Bunny start arguing over who gets to hold the hymnal so Momma Bunny takes hers and gives it to the Middle Bunny. Momma Bunny and Poppa Bunny just stand now and move their mouths as if to show they have memorized every Easter song.
9:30 am – Littlest Bunny starts talking loudly. She is escorted to the front yard by Poppa Bunny for a prolonged botany lesson.
9:58 am – Church is over and Momma Bunny is ready to leave. Unfortunately, Littlest Bunny has been outside for the last 30 minutes watching the egg hunt being set up so there is no chance of that.
10:04 – Littlest Bunny mentally prepares for the challenge ahead.
10:05 – Middle Bunny and Oldest Bunny talk strategy with the Littlest Bunny for the hunt. There is talk of pushing and shoving if deemed necessary.
10:08 am – The hunt begins. Littlest Bunny is not keeping her eyes on the prize. This frustrates Middle Bunny and Oldest Bunny who are doing their best to form a human wall discouraging other Bunnies from snatching eggs in the vicinity.
10:11 am – The victory walk.
10:14 am – Champions Easter egg hunters
10:30 am – Bunny family arrives home.
10:31 am – All designated Easter clothing has been stripped off and thrown to the ground by little bunnies.
10:32 am – Momma and Poppa Bunny tell the bunnies to go put some clothes on and stay upstairs. Momma and Poppa Bunny have designated this time as mandatory quiet time.
10:33 am – The Bunny children just laugh at their parents. They know their sugar high will last until right before dinnertime when all three will meltdown at the same time at the sight of their dinner.
Easter 2012 is deemed a success!
