 March 2008
Youngest arrived home from school on Friday completely perturbed

‘A boy in my class says the Easter bunny doesn’t exist; he says it’s just your mum….’

I looked at her, wondering what to say…However she quickly came to the rescue when she added

‘Well I told him, I said to him, don’t be silly, of course there’s an Easter bunny…I mean how else did I get a beautiful card from him last year… I mean my mum couldn’t possibly have made such a beautiful card….she wouldn’t know how…’

And then she promptly went off to retrieve the card she had carefully laid away from last Easter, a beautiful hand embroidered bunny adorned the front cover, and no I didn’t make it, but when I join the local quilting group next month…well who knows where my new found skills will lead me…

No pressure for the Easter bunny producing a spectacular creation this year then, as youngest proceeded to cover the kitchen table with an assortment of felt tip pens and crayons as she set about creating another beautiful card for the Easter bunny this year…

Until next time…

I love all these photos.

But of course there's an Easter Bunny, just as there's a tooth fairy, and sometimes a hobgoblin waiting by the fire. And did you know there's a dryad in each tree? Actually that's not quite right. There are whole families of Easter bunnies (you can tell them from ordinary bunnies by their yellow scarves) and not every tree has a dryad, but most do!

Those lambs - what faces!
Like Fennie, I just know there's an Easter Bunny and a tooth fairy - and my son is making sure that his little fellows know it too.
Lovely post!
