Wore Himself Out

Poor little Easter bunny, he worked so hard at bringing treats to everyone that after delivering all his goodies he collapsed face down on top of our carrot cake!

Makes a great story, doesn't it? The truth is that pals Wenirs and Ray played Easter bunny this year, sending the CARE package we received a week or so ago. We waited to unwrap the cake for Easter dinner and it was worth the wait! The fondant icing kept the whole cake beautifully moist and the rich carrot cake interior was the perfect ending to dinner shared this year with our friends Janie and Jack.

While we were feasting on roast lamb, mashed garlic potatoes and sugar snap peas, Wenirs was hiking down in the Grand Canyon with her sister, carrying
in her backpack everything for a two-week stay and savoring the delights of freeze-dried food. I think we got the better part of the deal but Wenirs would never agree.

somewhere out there in the interweb you can get a knitting pattern to make a science project easter bunny, including all the internal organs!
This is kinder.

Anna, they were so good, I got some more today!

Greg, perfect for a wascally wabbit, no?

Morgan, now that's a little ghoulish for a knitting project, isn't it? Maybe Mme. DeFarge would knit that.

As one of the lucky ones who got to partake of the yummy Easter dinner, I agree that it beat freeze dried rations by a loooong shot!
