The Alligator Bunny...

Okay, so Easter was a week ago, so what....I am all sorts of a mess lately...!! Life is busy hectic as ever, and it is so hard to find time to sit and blog about this crazy life I live...in fact...people are even losing interest, I mean...who "un-follows" someone...I must be really THAT BAD!! But, this is MY life, and MY journal, and I do it for ME...and for those who DO actually want to read it..!!!

Right...so back to Easter...where all fun begins. Flowers and Daisies, Fury little animals....ya...that would be in an ideal world. Mine started on Saturday. We were invited to a friends to have an Easter Egg hunt and BBQ. Carter had a game at noon, and I wanted to get some Easter eggs dyed before we went there by 3:30. Oh, right...didn't have plastic eggs, and needed to bring chips and whatnot to BBQ, so throw Walmart in to the mess....!! Well, we finally got to the egg dying part about 2:30, and it was rather a rush job...sorry kids...and then it was a mad dash to get ready and out the door. In a matter of fifteen minutes, my sweet little baby of a guy manages to annihilate all three bathrooms getting into the toilets, which means I get to wash him and change him numerous times....meanwhile, I cannot for the life of me find Parker's pants. The kid won't wear pants. It is just how he rolls...but in public...I gotta draw a line somewhere...



Needless to say, we were late. On the way, I realize that I had managed to get some plastic eggs for the hunt, and NOTHING to put in them....brilliant, again. I call Brian who is on his way there from work, and ask him to pick up a bag or two of little Easter candies to put in the said eggs. The sweet man shows up with a GROCERY bag full of gas station candy...!! WHAT??!! Not Easter candy, but he did get little ones that would fit in eggs...which we already filled because there was plenty to share...sigh...so we are left with almost $20 worth of gas station candy...delightful!! Ah well, he did stop for me, I was just a little...puzzled by the bit...



We had a splendiful time with friends and got our kids home at a decent hour so that the Easter Bunny could frequent our humble-like abode. We wanted to make sure that they had no chance for catching the Easter Bunny in the act, so we waited until like midnight. I went out to get the stash and bring it in, and this is what one of the chocolate Bunnies looked like:




CRAP!! I SOOOO was not going out at midnight....the night before Easter to hunt down ONE bunny...OH, and my bunny was broken to pieces as well....but, I wasn't gonna go round town for that either....you see, a certain "Rabbit" left some certain "Easter candy" in a certain "car of ours" for maybe two weeks. During that time he had thrown snowboarding gear and who knows what else on top of it...not to mention, it gets rather WARM in the car...wait...did I say HE??? I meant "The RABBIT" of course...


Well, we tried to decide who would cry the least, and who we could convince that this alien of a bunny creature was cool....PARKER...!!! Who else??!! He was SURE to have a sense of humor...right??!!


The next morning the kids got up to search for their baskets of joyness, and once they were all found, he didn't even notice right away...he had his hands full of peeps of happiness.




Then one of the other kids exclaimed how much they loved their big chocolate bunny....(insert tense panic here)...Parker takes his bunny out, and begins examining it. All the while the other kids are saying...."I got a bunny too!!" "Ya!!! We got chocolate bunnies!!"....





He looks at his and says... " I got a ......Alligator.....Bunny....." "!!!!"



With no time to lose, I quickly reply "NO WAY...You got an alligator bunny??? I wanna see!!"
"How cool is that??!! I love your alligator bunny"


PHEW....he shows off his unique prize to the others, and all is well in the Lords house...


That is really what Easter is all about....happiness...and chocolate bunnies that taste the same no matter how deformed they look!!


Okay, that is not the really real reason, but it sure made my day when my three year old was just so excited for his treasure. Jesus Christ has sacrificed much, and we get to see the blessings of it. I am not sure why sometimes that I am blessed the way I am, but I do know that I appreciate them and hope to understand some day...

Apparently, a lot of people unfollow, because I have people unfollow me all the time!

Looks like a fun, but stressful Easter!

I love the way a 3 year old can turn something weird into an alligator! ;) Our egg dying experience was a bit stressful too, Henry was too intersted. IYKWIM? Mess!

Literally CRACKED UP, LAUGHED OUT LOUD at "alligator bunny". Too funny. Probably should have seen it coming from the title, but nope, total surprise - and hilarious. About losing followers. Don't worry about it. I know it hurts, but my follower number fluctuates by one or two numbers everyday, which means that I am losing followers EVERY DAY. Well, I can't please everybody! And neither can you. I enjoy reading your blog though!

Lol! I'm glad our easter went a little smoother. I am usually the one running out at the last minute for something I forgot to get. I also got dumped recently too. I don't feel bad about it thought. I have really been lax lately.

alligator bunny, that's so cute. One for the memory books for sure. I've found over the few years I've parented, that what matters to me, my kids often don't give a flip about and that's usually a good thing. ;) Great post!
