Easter is just around the corner and I am hopping on the Hershey’s Bunny Trail and sharing some Easter traditions and memories.

Growing up Easter was so much fun! I got an entire outfit from top to bottom complete with an Easter hat, dress, purse and shoes. It’s kind of funny, we live in the south but usually at Easter it can still be pretty nippy outside. So we would be all dressed up in our Easter spring clothes and wearing a winter coat out hunting eggs freezing our rears off. We would always wake up on Easter morning and the Easter Bunny had came and gone and left a wonderful Easter Basket full of goodies and I have kept that tradition alive with my daughter.

I have to confess. that one year when my daughter was around 3, she got up and ran to the living room and there was no Easter Basket. Oh no, I am such a horrible mom! How in the world could I forget the Easter Bunny????  Somehow I conned her back into her room, ran and grabbed her Easter basket, sat it in the foyer and rang the doorbell, opened and shut the door. Then I called her in and told her the Easter bunny was running behind and just hopped up and left this for her and had to leave quickly because he was soooooooo far behind….all was well, but she never forgot the day the Easter Bunny was late! Geez, I wish she could forget that!

For fun Easter tips, recipes, coloring pages, Easter craft ideas and to follow the Hershey’s Bunny Trail visit Cups are a food group at our house and the Easter Basket wouldn’t be the same without some Reese’s Eggs! Yum!

As a mom have you ever made a huge mistake like~Forget the Easter Bunny? Please tell me I am not the only one! What are some of your families Easter Traditions?





Disclosure: I did receive Hershey product for sharing my Easter memories.
