Hoppy Easter!

I wasn't really going to do an Easter post today. I know, I'm a crank, but it feels kind of forced. Besides the fact that I have come to the realization that Easter does have the best candy. (Peeps? Hello?) I've also come to the realization that we're not really big Easter people. We visit with family and do the big meal thing, but when I think about it Easter is a pretty religious holiday. And in this house we are unfortunately pretty much heathens. We sleep late on Sundays (never go to church), never miss a South Park episode (this alone will probably earn me a fiery aftermath) and have been known to say a few swear words here and there. (A few?)

But oh well, that all went right out the window when I woke up and the first thing I saw this morning was this:

It's the Easter Bunny! In my backyard! And look he brought a friend too!

How cute is it that they decided to pose for me like that on either side of the evergreen? And on today of all days! Of course I do have some reservations. I'm not so sure about this being purely Easter Karma. We're a little behind on the spring cleanup in the backyard so I'm pretty sure the overgrown grass out there is just like a big version of the Sizzler for these guys right now. After the bunnies hopped off a few robins dropped by to get their piece of the action too.

Happy Spring/Easter/Passover everybody!

Happy Easter!

They're so cute. My in-laws always have bunnies in their backyard early in the mornings. I haven't seen any here in Halifax.
