hide me some eggs, woman!

some of you might remember when i made the dreaded mistake of telling blake the easter bunny wasn't real. you can read about this traumatic moment here. he has since forgotten that he once cared about the stupid bunny and has accepted the fact that it is me who does the egg hiding. so much so, that he tormented me all weekend to hide them early.
"come on mom, just hide them on friday night! who cares? why do we have to wait until sunday???? MAAAAHM!"
i considered it. cause what difference does it make if i hide them on friday night, or saturday night? and what the hell do easter eggs and a freaking bunny have to do with jesus? where did this come from anyways? not the jesus part, the bunny part. well hell, while you're at it, might as well explain the jesus part too. just kidding. kind of. anways, i made him wait until sunday morning to hunt for eggs and now he has the biggest bag of candy known to man. and he'll never eat it. he still has tons of his halloween candy in a bowl. he is obsessed with having candy, but once he gets it- he doesn't eat it. unless it's a reese's. then he makes himself sick with them. he gets that from me. i'm a reeseaholic. if there's a 12 step program for that, i don't want it.

i'm still working on getting the video of me in the mud up. i have it, but it's not broken into parts and i need to do that. or scott needs to send me that one clip, but he slacks and obviously hates me, so we can all blame him for the hold up.

I can't wait to see the video too. I don't think it matters, but he might have been sad if he didn't get to do it on Sunday, when everyone else was. Maya is like that with the candy. I was too, although my favorites were M&Ms and skittles.

Blake is a hoarder- that's funny. If he could bottle that instinct he would be so rich thanks to women like myself. I'd so rather hoard food rather than eat it.

Can't wait for the video!

I LOVE the title of that post! I wish I could be a candy hoarder. I am a serious candy eater. ANd my butt reflects that fact, unfortunately.

I still have Halloween candy left, too.

FROM 2004.

I guess when the chocolate turns white it's time to throw it away.

I was wondering if my boys noticed the price tag on the basket that the Easter Bunny left for them.

My boys are 7, 5 and 3. I THINK the oldest still believes in Santa Claus, I'm too chicken to ask. I'm hoping their Dad gets that dose of reality, along with the "sex talk" when the boys have questions. ;)

my 9 year old seems to be clued in to the fact that the easter bunny probably doesn't shop at target as indicated by the tags on his new flip flops and swim trunks...my 8 year old however comes in with, "mom, the easter bunny also shops at target cuz he doesn't have elf help like santa!"... the 2 year old of course is scared on bunnies and will be thrilled on revelation day!

1. the thought of reserving candy and not eating as much of it as possible as soon as possible, to the point of having to puke up the candy---it a concept i cannot grasp. i *LOVE* candy. eat it all the time. have some with me all the time. i am a freak. please mail his uneaten candy to me. i am too old for the easter bunny and trick-or-treating.

2. i am not sure, but i think the whole egg/bunny thing is somehow tied to rebirth (eggs, baby chicks, Jesus resurrecting) and springtime fertility rituals of ye olden times (bunny). the maypole fits in there too, somewhere...if you want, i can look it up for you.

3. that is really funny that that kristin's son is afraid of bunnies. maybe he watched Monty Python's Quest for the Holy Grail? that's no ordinary rabbit!
