Happy Easter!

I'm bushed, too tired to write a whole entry, but thought I'd post some pics for the Easter Holiday tomorrow. Here's one for the littles who may see this tomorrow over their mamas shoulders. It reminds me of Dy's babies.

Here's a fun one for fellow chicken lovers. Do you know that they don't just dye the chicks because people might think it's cute? They do it to tell different batches of babies apart, etc. You can read all about it here.

This one was too cute not too include. Does anyone know how rabbits came to represent Easter?
And it may be a bit irreverent, but I couldn'tr resist these last two. Maybe it's because I am so tired, but they both just cracked me up.

Especially this one:
And last but not least, here is an Easter book recommendation. If you have never read this book, it is worth the two bucks it will cost to buy it at Amazon. The Easter Pig
We found this book when the kids were just little tykes, and it has been a tradition ever since for the Easter Pig to leave something shiny in the bottom of the baskets.

Happy Easter everyone!

Oh, what a fun collection of tidbits and pictures. The chocolate bunnies cartoon has long been one of my absolute favorites. It makes me laugh every time.

I hope you had a beautiful Easter! We were thinking of you guys.

What fun! Thanks for sharing. I especially loved the first bit of "chick art" ~ lovely!

I too laugh every time I see the chocolate bunny funny.

Trusting you are well and enjoyed your Sunday. I thought of you often yesterday and smiled.

Once upon a time a goddess named Eostre changed a bird into a rabbit--some stories say the bird's wing was injured, others say the goddess was angry at the bird, still others claim that she wanted the bird to be a pet. The rabbit pleaded with Eostre that she be allowed to fly and be a bird once more. Eostre granted her the wish, allowing the rabbit to be a bird one day out of each year; however the bird was required to bring the eggs that were layed back to her--thus once a year you see a rabbit delivering eggs. Today we see this story in the constellations: Lepus (rabbit) lies at the feet of Orion.
