chocolate bunnies and jelly beans
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.
