Happy Easter!

Easter could possibly be the celebration of the year I get least excited about.

Dont get me wrong I do like it, but in comparison to say Christmas Day or Mother’s day it really doesn’t rate!

Easter really has just become a commercial excuse to down millions of chocolate eggs without guilt…

Sounds shocking but it is true.

I must admit though, I cannot let an occasion slip by without enjoying the excitement the children bring with it.

So on Sunday morning I will put aside my distaste for overloading children with excess sugars, and enjoy their excitement as they discover their Easter Bunny Treats!!!!

What I am concerned about more than anything this year is the excessive price tag that traders and companies put on their eggs.

They know our kids want them.

Easter Eggs!

They know we’re going to buy them.

Arghhh, I would much rather spend $15 on a toy for each child and give them a block of chocolate for the occasion, however I don’t think just the block would cut it!

What to do what to do…… 🙂

I will go out and buy some Easter eggs, but I will not be going overboard.

Support this cause!!!!

I’m going to put a massive focus on tomorrow’s Royal Children’s Hospital’s Good Friday Appeal, and ask the kids to donate their piggy bank savings to the cause.

Now that is money well spent!!!

I’ve added a link here to their webpage.  Please check it out and donate if you can!

Give that they may Grow!!!!!

Wishing you all Safe and Happy Easter.

If you are travelling, stay safe on the roads, enjoy your family time and most of all…….

Have a basket load of FUN!!!!! 🙂

The Daily Dirt – 21/04/11

My day began much the same as most Thursdays do in this house.

Wake, Breakfast, Get dressed, Teeth, etc….

Once we were ready for the day we gave the house a quick tidy up before our visitors arrived.

Earlier in the week I had organised with a friend to bring her 3 children over for a play.

Not only would it help regain some sanity, it would fill in the day and keep the Easter Bunny excitement at bay….. Or so we thought…. Hahahahhaha!!!!

I popped some party pies, sausage rolls & nuggets in the oven for lunch and we let the kids run wild while they heated up.

Mackenzi and Aria having a great time!

After lunch I asked the kids to head outside while we set up an easter egg and chocolate hunt for them!

While the actual hunt only lasted a few minutes, it was well worth it so see the joy and excitement on their little faces.

The downside??? Several hyped up sugar filled kids!!!

So after approximately 2 hours of  chaos, I picked Brian up from work and quietly mentioned to Zafirah that Dad had seen something fluffy in the backyard….

Like a shot she was off and within no time the whole group of kids were hunting what is commonly referred to as ‘The Easter Bunny’!!

Hilarious.

They were out there searching every nook and cranny of our backyard, even setting up rabbit traps with boxes and lettuce leaves.

All from a few little words I said in a vain effort to grab a second’s peace….. Bloody Golden!!! Hahahaha.
