Have a Hip-Hopping Happy Easter!

Oh, those chocolate bunnies! They come in so many scrumptious flavors it's hard to choose. Let's see...there's milk chocolate, dark chocolate, cookies and cream. There's white chocolate, raspberry chocolate, and peanut butter. Each one is more scrumptious than the next. I remember carefully selecting an assortment of my most favorite luscious chocolates to put in my children's Easter baskets. Those baskets literally overflowed with sugary delights.

Which reminds me, have you ever filched Easter candy from your kids? I believe it's legal to do so as long as you practice the utmost fairness. Never take a peanut butter cup from one basket without taking one from the other, too. Just to even things up, you know.

You're welcome, kids! 

Alas, the only ones ineligible for treats from the Easter basket are the four-legged family members. Chocolate is toxic to pets. Keep those baskets out of critter reach, because they'll raid it faster than a sneaky parent ever could. But don't feel bad...a quick trip to the dog bakery for pet-friendly Easter treats is the perfect solution to keep everyone healthy and happy.

From us to you, have a safe and happy Easter holiday!

A couple of Easters ago, I decorated a cake for the granddaughters...complete with one large chocolate bunny. I put it on the back of the stove to let the icing "set" before covering to transport...and the beast consumed half of it, including the chocolate bunny. She didn't even turn a hair! The REAL threat was my fury. "BAD DOG" didn't bother her either as she licked her chops. Her stomach is made of cast iron!

Happy Easter and happy spring, if it ever arrives for real.

Yes Easter can be cruel to us critters. Some much chocolate and none for us. We wish you all a Happy Easter. We hope the Easter Bunny hops by with lots of treats. Enjoy.
Best wishes Molly

I love the cartoon! I think there should be a holiday that's just Chocolate Day.

This was the first Easter in our 33 years of marriage that we didn't have holiday candy in the house. My youngest is 19 and said, "Don't buy it for me!" One of these days (hopefully before I'm too old to enjoy it) one of my three kids will make me a grandmother and chocolate bunnies will rein once again. :)

Thanks, Pat! Hope your Easter was filled with love and laughter.

I'm so glad to hear we've both read from the same rule book when it comes to chocolate thievery! Same rule applies to Halloween bags and Christmas stockings.
