This Easter Sunday we woke up to a gorgeous morning with the sun rising in clear skies and the kids' voices bright and early wondering if the Easter Bunny laid any of its eggs in our yard. After peering through the windows they could see from a distance that indeed, the mysterious creature had shown up in the middle of the night leaving behind treasure for the kids. Before the hunt and while the kids ate breakfast, I had made my way out to the chicken coop to collect the eggs but saw that some of the Easter Bunny’s gifts had been tampered with. I walked over to observe the aftermath of a disaster.
As you can see in the video, egg after egg had been opened by a thief and the candy inside had been unwrapped and consumed. Even packages had been torn open and the insides devoured. One after the other a trail of opened eggs led me to a very happy animal’s journey through the night of finding my children’s Easter chocolates. Whatever animal this was had the dexterity of a human and unwrapped the candy exactly where the eggs were laid, devoured the candy and moved on to the next. Thankfully only about 30-40% of the eggs were consumed and after carefully cleaning up the evidence of an animal’s Easter night adventure the kids did not even notice almost half their treasure had been looted.
This is a lesson to be learned for the Easter Bunny. Don’t lay your eggs in the middle of the night. Hahah! Wake up super early instead? Has anyone else ever had this experience? It gave me a good laugh during this crazy time in the world and certainly makes for a good story to tell! Happy Easter everyone!
