Chocolate Bunnies in the Rain

Like Halloween, it seems like Easter in Northern Utah is almost always cold and rainy (or snowy) and egg hunts are moved indoors. Which puts a damper on the whole holiday, in my opinion. However, every few years, it's halfway decent weather and we get to spend the day outside: hunting eggs, playing ball, having a picnic, going on a hike, etc. I'm crossing my fingers for this year, but as it's been raining three days straight, I'm not holding my breath. One thing is a constant, and that's Robin's Eggs, chocolate malt candies that turn your mouth a rainbow of colors. Bring 'em on!

Do you celebrate Easter? If so, what are the things you like to do to celebrate? Church? Brunch? Egg-dying? Chocolate bunny decapitating?

P.S. After telling my 4 year-old son the (Biblical) Easter story, he wrinkled his nose thoughtfully and asked, "So Jesus is a zombie?" (Amanda, are you reading this? I thought you'd get a kick out of that.)

That poor bunny! Chocolate bunnies were harmed for the sake of this post!

I celebrate by heading to church and partaking of copious amounts of chocolate! I'm sad that my parents no longer give me an Easter basket now that I'm an adult.

Wendy - that is the funniest thing ever and now I think about it, your son is totally right! From the mouth of babes!!!!!!

I'm actually about to make my first ever batch of hot cross buns so if they work then I'll make some more for Sunday to go along with the chocolate that my kids will eat!
