Happy Easter to all of our bloggers and readers that are celebrating today. The bunny came last night for all four kids and even Molly got a basket full of bones and pig ears. The kids are already showing the signs of sugar saturation.

Our kids are “double-dippers” — getting both Passover and Easter this week. They are therefore now pumping blood that is fifty percent sugar. This year, the Easter Bunny found chocolate dipped Peeps — a big improvement though I never really took to the little yellow chicks made of some mystery material. Of course, traditional Peeps were also included.

We are preparing for our annual Easter Egg hunt when we invite all of the neighborhood kids for a massive search for hundreds of eggs. We should have around 40-50 kids this year.

I will be making our traditional mustard-herb coated lambs. We have to do two for the guests and Leslie and the kids have made hilarious cupcakes that look like rabbits burrowing in grass as well as shark cupcakes. She has also made strawberry cheesecake that will be lucky to make it up until dinner.

Happy Easter to everyone — now hop to it and eat more chocolate!

  7. Sir, yes sir! I’m on that chocolate eating order right away, sir! And although we’re having pork roast today, I must say that mustard-herb coated lamb sounds simply outstanding.

  8. That’s great, Elaine. As, Bernie B. aptly says, “This is not about a bunny.” 🙂 I’d love an emoticon with bunny ears right about not…

  9. This Exists: Local Boston TV Station Reports On Seniors Fist Fighting Over A Ceramic Easter Bunny
    by Frances Martel, 4/23/2011

    Happy Easter! Nothing says “holiday cheer” like seniors threatening to assault each other over holiday decorations, and this local Boston news story delivers: 75-year-old Robert Bailey is taking 73-year-old Larry Quinn to court for surrounding his (Quinn’s) home in ceramic bunnies, and has even threatened to assault him. This was Salisbury, Massachusetts big crime story of the day last night.

    The news anchor delivered the news with a straight face and a hilarious “Hopping Mad” news graphic behind her, turning it over to the poor reporter that had to chase down both Quinn and Bailey for comment. While the former declined, the latter appeared enraged by all the hoopla, since this isn’t exactly out-of-character for him. “In a ten-year span, Bailey has filed 38 complaints on his neighbors,” the police reported, while one neighbor decried Bailey as a “village terrorist” that has everybody “afraid.”

    Oh, the things that I learn on this veritable miracle of a blog. Happy Easter to all.
