Santa and the Easter Bunny!

 Over the Christmas holiday I wrote a blog about the wonderful idea of taking my children to get their pictures taken with Santa Claus at the mall.  Well, maybe the thought behind it was wonderful but the waiting in line for hours just to have my youngest daughter change her mind right before sitting on Santa's lap was not.  Although a few years down the road I may look back on that holiday picture (two of my children smiling happily on Santa's lap while my youngest screams her head off) and smile, I definitely would not want to go through that again.  Hence my blog about Santa costumes and the benefit of having Santa come to your house for some great holiday memories!

Well it's Easter time again and the same thing can apply to the Easter Bunny!  I know the lines aren't as long at the mall to get your children's picture taken with the Easter Bunny but you still run the risk of your child losing it on the Easter Bunny's lap.  At you'll find everything you need in the way of Easter Bunny costumes to bring the Easter Bunny to you.  My sister's neighborhood has an Easter parade every year where the kids wear their Easter best and form a little parade down their street.  At the end of the parade route the Easter Bunny is there to greet the children and the kids love it!  I think this is a great idea!  Whether you have the Easter Bunny come to your neighborhood or your home, your children will be more relaxed and really enjoy getting their picture taken and "hanging out" with the Easter Bunny for awhile.  How many kids can say they've hung out with the Easter Bunny?  Last year we did the whole Easter Bunny thing at our house and my neighbors thought it was such a cute idea that we're expanding it to our neighborhood this year.  The Easter Bunny is going to have his hands full this year!
