|Mr Easter Bunny visiting our yard!|
Let's get one thing perfectly clear:
I LOVE THE EASTER BUNNY!Pretty darn clever little fellow made my daughters pretty darn happy over the years.

I taught my girls what Easter means. We taught them, "Easter is a spring festival that celebrates the central event of the Christian faith: the resurrection of Christ three days after his death by crucifixion." You can search reasons of the Easter Bunny, Easter Eggs, Easter Baskets, and although you will get similar yet different answers, basically it does not have a lot to do with our Christian faith and the Christian celebration of Easter.
HOWEVER~ neither does Santa Claus and we kind of like him around our neck of the blog too. It's for FUN! There is nothing wrong with a little fun. Come on!
Here comes Peter Cottontail,

Hippity Hoppity Easter's on its way.
I don't think it was meant to compete with our faith. I always looked at it as a companion. No harm.

The joy I had with my sister growing up with Easter celebrations, and the Easters our Children had growing up celebration together made it all that much more fun and loving. We spent almost every Easter together. Our children had tons of fun together at Granny's famous Easter Egg Hunts.

Hubby is getting a bit of the Easter Grinch. Just a bit. He thinks the girls are too old for the Baskets. (Funny, he never complains that HE gets one too!) So...Baby girls (okay they are 20 & 22) are getting minimal baskets this year. Just a few fun things that they need anyway.
You are NEVER too old for the Easter Bunny!
That's what this fellow at the top of my post told me this morning in our yard♥
