Easter Surprises

Happy Easter, everyone! (Or Passover, or Springtime, or whatever you celebrate!) 


In my family, we are not religious but we celebrate Easter as a way of bringing our family together for a big meal, and of course, I get visited by the Easter Bunny!


I got all dressed to go to my Grandma and Grandpa A's house for a yummy Easter feast. But when I got downstairs, I noticed that the Easter Bunny must have visited while I was getting ready! Awesome!




There were eggs filled with candy, a few pieces of my favorite candy (like candy buttons - YUM!), and as always, a GIANT chocolate bunny! I like to eat them feet first, not ears first. Do you?




After I finished squealing about the candy, I heard a tiny peeping sound. Peep peep peep! What could that sound be?!


Tiny chicks! But where did they come from? And where is their mom?!


Just as I spotted their hen mom, my mom told me that she and my dad have friends who raise chicks at their house, and they knew how much I wanted to see them, so they worked it out to have the Easter Bunny bring them to my house for the morning! Cool, huh?


I slowly reached out to the chicks as they peeped and chirped heartily. They certainly weren't scared of me!


I picked up one of the chicks gingerly and held it up to look at. It was so tiny and fuzzy!


Peep peep!


When I sat the chick down, it tumbled and fell over! Oh no!

"It's okay, Charlie," my mom said. "Chicks are clumsy but it's not hurt. It'll get right back up again!"


"See, Charlie?" she said. "Right as rain! Now, see if the hen will let you hold her."


She was so soft and gentle! My mom said the hen's name was Henrietta. Get it? HEN-rietta! Hehe!



Wow, what a neat thing! I really love learning about new animals!

As I sat Henrietta down, I saw a cage had appeared!




What IS this thing?!



I lifted up the cage door a tiny bit...


...and a tiny nose poked out! What could this be?!


Oh my goodness, it's a bunny! It's so cute!



I picked up the bunny and cuddled it gently. It was so sweet!

"Our friends also have bunnies on their property," my mom said. "One day soon, we can go there and pick out one to be all yours! Now that we have a big backyard, we can build a hutch for your bunny to live in!"

I cheered. "Thanks, Mom and Dad and Mom and Dad's friends! I can't wait to have a new pet!"


Happy Easter, everybody! Do you have any special traditions that you do for the spring holiday you celebrate?

  1. Just like you we aren't religious either, we just celebrate Easter because it's fun and because we get to hunt for eggs! :P We have the tradition of doing an egg hunt among our family and a few neighbors and it is so much fun!

  2. I like to celebrate springtime, mostly. It would be so cool to get a bunny on Easter! They are so adorable and fluffy.
    We usually go over to my grandmas for lunch as a Easter tradition.

    1. The best kind of traditions are the ones revolving around food!

  5. Love your outfit and your Easter basket. Very nice. The chicks and bunny are adorable. Did you know that bunnies can be litter box trained and live indoors? We have a house rabbit named Bubbles. He has a hutch in our living room and gets to romp around. He's adorable.

    1. Thank you! I didn't know that, but I don't know how my dogs would like it... :)

    2. So very true. If your dogs are breeds that are hunters or burrowers or racers like terriers and dachshunds and greyhounds, they don't mix well with the rabbits.Some can be trained. Our cats are fine with the bunnies, but we keep a close eye on them just in case. The older cats don't pay him much mind. The younger ones will play tag with Bubbles now and then.
