A Day In The Life Of The Easter Bunny

Easter Greetings Everyone:



This is the story about one day in the life of the Easter Bunny, as told in his/her own words.  It starts out as a one-man/woman show, but by the time it's over--who knows, there could be a cast of thousands..You know how those rabbits are!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"I am about ready to embark on the biggest day of the year for me, but before I get busy, I would like to share with you just how exhausting a day it will be."

"As soon as the sun comes up, I crawl out of my warm and comfy bed and get into my 'working' suit."


I'm wearing Bunnies By The Bay, from a great little shop in Anacourtes, Washington. Their motto is:  "Bunnies are our best friends indeed.  They do delight and give glad dreams."

"Now that's what I'm talking about."

"Next order of business will be putting morning tea, along with carrots and parsley, on the table."


"The little ones are not really morning bunnies so maybe only a few will show up."


A few of the children of the Easter Bunny

"Now that tea is over maybe a stroll through the garden, with my basket of eggs, will quiet my mind."


"We are having company for Easter dinner, family and a few friends.  They will be arriving shortly."  "Let's see, we need to make a list of who will be here."


Great Uncle Harvey, Auntie Flora and sweet little Cottontail


The Cousins


The Twins

"And we must not forget that terrible twosome".....


The Quackers

"I've just gotten the table set and now we must hurry on as time is of the essence."


"There are still so many things to do to get ready.  We must attend services at the 'Little White Church' where my grandparents were married back in 1908."


Painting: The Little White Church, Soquel, California

"We will sing hymns from an old song book (1950) and visit with our neighbors."


"After church services, we will join in the Easter Parade."


"Is it just me or did anyone else notice that bossy parade organizer?  How rude!"

"It is getting close to dinnertime so we must be on our way.  We are having tri-tip roast, oven roasted carrots and potato medley, green salad with basil vinegarette and for dessert, home-made blueberry pie..YUM!"


"Didn't I tell you it was going to be an exhausting day?"

"I'm very sleepy after this busy time so I will bid you all goodnight and sweet dreams."



.....Until next year.

"I hope I did you proud."

Yours Truly....The Easter Bunny....


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

**Footnote:  These are two of my most cherished possessions:  One is a little book done by my Dad in 1918.  He was in the first grade; and the little china bunny was in my first Easter basket.


And so I add my sentiments, my good friends, along with the Easter Bunny's, that you and your families spend a blessed, joyous and happy Easter day....Judy


"For I remember it is Easter morn, and life and love and peace are all new born."
