chocolate bunnies and jelly beans

chocolate and green

Here's to re-birth, new beginnings, and all the symbolic goodness that goes with- eggs (beautifully died) , (chocolate) bunnies, yellow chicks, er peeps (mmm, especially when just a tad stale) and jelly beans (oh the jelly beans, too many already) which I always thought looked an awful lot like seeds ready to be planted- wouldn't that be fun to have a jelly bean plant?!

Mr. O is getting a kite (shhhhh, he has no idea. hee hee) in his basket this year. For some reason a kite seems to be one of the things I remember showing up in my Easter basket every year. That and sesame candies, which I didn't like (but mom did). Oh, and malt balls (think whoppers only from the health food bins)which I did like and where such a treat for a kid who didn't often get candy.

We will do an egg hunt with the cousins and dinner with the family on Sunday. I hope it warms/dries up a bit before then. Although the damp rain is feeling nice and I know the plants are soaking it all in and loving it.

  3. It sounds like you're making up for your candy deprivation as a kid....Good for you!

    I love Peeps! The crunch of the sugar melting on the tongue..delish!

    I'm all into Easter for the first time in my life! Seeing it again through Eben's eyes.

    Happy Easter Vanessa.
