Flashback: "Dear Easter Bunny..."

By Thismomloves @ThisMomLoves
Have you ever wondered what the Easter Bunny brings to other houses?
I thought it would be timely to pull out a blast from the past: my post from last Spring entitled "Dear Easter Bunny: An Open Letter Waiting Reply". Click on the link to check it out, along with several great comments. (And FYI: "Mama of Seven" has since become "Mama of 8", and she has a great way of explaining to her kids why some of their peers get more extravagant gifts from the Easter Bunny, Santa, etc.)
Flashback:
This year, Frannie will be receiving some kids' non-toxic, odorless nail polish colours from Piggy Paint (full review and possibly a giveaway coming after Easter). To date, I have never personally painted her nails, as I hate to be one of those moms who lets her daughters grow up too fast, but I made a deal with myself that if I hold out on the ear piercing, I can let her have a little bit of nail colour...especially when I know it's so child-friendly. Colours shown below are from Piggy Paint's "Little Chick" Easter-coloured gift set.Flashback: The girls will also both be enjoying some gifts courtesy of my new role on the Hallmark Press Pause Panel. As part of this new panel, I received a huge box of goodies just perfect for Spring occasions (and non-occasions, because Hallmark wants Canadians to "press pause" and celebrate the everyday moments) and the Easter Bunny will certainly be dipping into it.
Maggie can look forward to a "Totally Ticklish Duck": adorable to look at, and she sings and giggles when you tickle her! (Regularly $29.95, but only $14.95 with the purchase of three cards.)
Flashback:
Frannie will love her Watson the Raccoon Interactive Storybook with Plush Buddy. Turn him on, read the story aloud, and Watson responds to different sounds and phrases. (You can buy various titles, and "The Case of the Sneaky Stealer" comes free when you purchase Watson.) For ten bucks, this is a really neat gift.

I also have a couple of activity books stashed away for the occasion, and I'll be shopping for some Spring p.j.'s to finish things off. This is, of course,  in addition to the requisite chocolate! And if there happens to be way too much and I have to help them eat it...then so be it. (I have a particular weakness for Mini Eggs.)
Feel free to leave your own comments on what the Easter Bunny will be bringing to your house this year.
