Sunday at church, we had the annual Easter Egg hunt. Part of this entailed filling approximately 17,000 eggs (OK, I'm egg-agerating here! It was a lot less) with candy for small children.
A couple of weeks ago, members of the committee in charge of the Easter Egg hunt approached me about helping out with the big Easter egg hunt. Seems they wanted me to help the Easter Bunny out by making an appearance for him at the event (he is busy this time of year!) So, I agreed.
Sunday morning, I took a change of clothes to church--no way was I wear a shirt and tie under the Easter Bunny outfit. I changed into shorts and a t-shirt, dressed up like the Easter Bunny and had a good time hopping about and bringing smiles to the faces of children. Some of the children were not quite sure what to make of me, despire the fact that you could see my face. (There was a nose that came down and I could lift it up so they could see it was me and be less uncertain). Gracelyn and Davis saw me and smiled from far away but were a bit more wary up close.
Which, my sister told me today that Gracelyn has now decided that Uncle Michael's job is being the Easter Bunny....
