Aloha Friday #9

Welcome to Aloha Friday! It's a weekly blog event that started at An Island Life where I ask a simple question, answer it, then invite you to answer it also! 

Easter is a couple days away and I'm starting to decorate and get ready. We're avoiding the big crowds and egg hunts this year; I just don't feel like bothering. Miss M is only 2 and I don't feel like keeping track of her in a crowd with Mr. C strapped to my back! :) All of our neighbors have plans so I think we'll do an egg hunt alone here at home and just use it as a good photo opp.

Mr. Eight and I had a discussion the other day about the Easter Bunny. Miss M is getting older now and understands more so we were trying to decide if we were going to emphasize the Easter Bunny illusion. It was never a really big deal in my house, I don't remember a point where I thought my baskets came from a big rabbit, like the way I remember dreaming about Santa Claus. 

In the end we agreed it wasn't something we were going to promote, since it isn't something that is very important to either of us. 

Question of the week: How did you handle the Easter Bunny and your kids?  

Thanks for playing!

Look here for more Aloha Friday!


  1. My kids are grown, but we color eggs and hide them for our grandkids.
    Here's My Question

  2. My kids are grown. YAY!

    Have a great weekend!

  3. This is the first year I'll be doing a storage container type basket. After years of doing "Easter baskets" I'd like to do something that will get used more throughout the year. I found a cute one at Target.

  4. Both of my children still believe in the Easter bunny though I am confident that my 10 year old is only saying that because he's afraid he won't get any chocolate otherwise.

  5. Both kids believe in the Easter bunny and that their awesome baskets come from said bunny. I make them custom baskets each year based on their current tastes and fill it with toys they're interested in (vs. the overabundance of candy). They do get candy, but not as much as they'd probably like. ;) We also do an Easter egg hunt just us - the hubby and I hide the eggs late Saturday night and are quite entertained at their attempts to find them all the next morning. :)

  6. Easter is a religious holiday in our home but the Easter bunny always came ... And still does ... After Church. ;D

  7. My middle child still believes in the Easter Bunny but not as fanatically as Santa. :-)
