There is a chipmunk in your easter basket?

Who says you have to give a plush rabbit for Easter? I mean hasn't the Easter bunny had enough glory for one furry friend? Why not consider this year putting some Chipmunks in that Easter basket!

The Easter bunny has be eluding me for way to long, and the Chipmunks may just know why. I actually remember my first "Easter bunny" experience. I was around six and we lived in this ground floor apartment that had a sliding glass door that lead out to a small porch area. I was convinced that this would be the year that I would catch the Easter bunny in the act as well that door was right near my bedroom and sort of loud not to mention the most obvious means of travel in or out of the house for a huge bunny with eggs. I never caught the rabbit but I did end up with a huge basket. The whole experience left me feeling a little cheated. Heh.

Well in Alvin And The Chipmunks - The Mystery of Easter Chipmunk and his brothers visit their grandfather. While they are there they discover a really interesting family history, their grandfather was the original Easter chipmunk. I know your thinking, what on earth is an Easter chipmunk... well basically the Easter bunny stole his job from the Easter chipmunk. Mr Hoppity, aka the Easter bunny, is in for a big surprise as Alvin decides to take him to court over the whole matter. heh.

Along with the Easter episode there is also a St Patricks Day themed episode that is pretty hilarious along with several others. There are no extra features on the disc.

I remember my mother would load up our baskets with so much candy that we'd still be eating months later. It was great but I was always a little jealous of the kids who got toys or clothes in their baskets. Thanks for the chance.

'The Easter Bunny' would always hide jellybeans and foil wrapped chocolate eggs all over the house. One egg would always be on top of the phone that hung on the wall. When my sister and I were younger, our older brother was the only one who could reach it, so he always got it, but even after we grew up we were kinda stuck in our ways and would still let our brother have that one egg :-)

There were always mostly colored eggs in our baskets, that us kids had dyed and designed patterns on the day before with our mom. We usually had jelly beans in our baskets. We always went to Church, like most Sundays unless we were sick or on vacation out of State. After Church we came home and usually ate a ham that had pineapple mustard glaze on it, potato salad (so my mom could slice up some of those hard boiled eggs and put them in it, since she knew they'd never all get eaten up any other way). Then in the afternoon the family either played a board game together or twister.

Easter was almost as big of holiday for us as Christmas. One Easter our grandparents gave my brother, me and my cousins each a set of Easter bunny ears and Easter bunny feet to wear over our shoes. We had a blast pretending we were the Easter bunny and there is a picture to prove it. Thanks for the giveaway.

When I was younger, my family couldn't afford the Easter baskets that had toys, large stuffed animals, and tons of chocolate. So my mom would make it herself or get a small basket with a small stuffed animal and a little chocolate. I always envied those kids who got the big baskets.

I love easter because of all of the pastel colors and spending time with my family, usually at a picnic. My most memorable easter though was when I was 4 and was playing and fell on the side of the bbq pit. I still have a small burn scar. Needless to say, I keep kids very far from it now. utgal2004[at]yahoo[dot]com

We don't celebrate Easter in our family, but when I was a kid, my mom always forgot how many Easter Eggs that she hid, and so we'd always find a few rotten ones months later. Gross.

When our son was 2, he had his own little private Easter egg hunt in our backyard. And he liked it so much, he kept on asking his dad and I to re-hide the eggs over and over. I think we must have had 5 egg hunts a day for a whole week! =)

My kids would love this DVD.
I remember one Easter where my parents surprised my brother & I with real live chicks. They went to go buy two, but the salesman, closing the store for the weekend, offered them 20 some chicks. My parents took all 20. What a surprise! To this day, we still laugh about them being crazy to take all 20.
We had 20 chicks and watched them grow, until they got to be a bit too much to handle. We then donated them to our local zoo. But, we had such laughs and great memories of those chicks.

Helen S said...

We would always go to my grandparents on Easter. Someone would hide eggs and my grandfather would pull the kids around in a big wagon with his lawn mower. This was years ago and I love looking at the pictures. It brings back good memories.

when my son was 3 years old, the easter bunny decided to hide plastic filled eggs outside in addition to the usually dyed eggs inside... he was so excited to go looking for the eggs, but there were none to be found... ANYWHERE!! we stood in the yard dumb-founded, when all the sudden a hersheys miniature wrapper floated down from the sky... we looked up... there was a long straigt branch on our tree that was about 20 feet above ground level... the branch was lined with colored easter eggs and a little squirrel opening them and taking the candy out! got tons of pictures that year!

rosannepm said...

We have a morning Easter Egg hunt in our home. We use plastic eggs with a few small coins and jelly beans inside. You'd think they had gold or $100 bills in there the way my kids race through the house tackling (4 boys) each other to get an egg. I guess we encourage that as the one with the most eggs gets a small prize like a kite. When one went to college he actualy came home for the Easter Egg hunt rosans4@comcast.net

No matter how long it took, my mom always waited until my brother, sister and I were asleep before she would prepare and hide the Easter baskets. For many years we truly believed the Easter Bunny hid our baskets. Now she continues that tradition with her grand-children. Thank you for the fun give-away.

Easter was not a big deal when I was growing up. My parents didn't hide eggs or candy. They just made up a small basket and hid that. Of course, it was easy to find.

paula h said...

When I was a kid I used to want a store-bought Easter basket instead of the one my Mom made me. One Easter my Mom was really sick and had to have surgery. My grandparents came down to stay with my sister and I. My Papaw went out and bought us each a basket. I was so excited until I opened it and saw how little candy and toys were really in the basket. From then on I was happy with thw baskets my Mom made and felt sorry for kids who only got a store-bought one.
