Bunnies

One Easter morning when I was a child, I awoke with glee to find a beautiful decorated basket waiting for me on our fireplace hearth.


An over sized, colorful, woven wicker basket in bright pink, purple, green and yellow. Nestled in the green plastic grass were the holiday goodies.

This years was a Barbie doll, some hair ribbons, gobs of jelly beans and a HUGE Chocolate Bunny! I played with the doll, wore the ribbons, nibbled on the jelly beans but saved the bunny.

I am able to delay gratification!


Well, the time came a few days later to open up the candy box and enjoy the milk chocolate bunny that I had saved for its special moment.
As I opened the box and carefully removed the bunny........I gasped......the entire back had been licked and chewed away!

The culprit?........... my little brother!

The turkey had been pilfering off my stash since he had already eaten his on Easter Day!

He obviously had not achieved self control like I had.



So here are some cute little bunnies for Easter. These are the kind that your little brother can't eat!
You can find them in our Etsy shop.
