This Is The Way The Bunny Hops

1) Why do you suppose there are so many songs about Santa Claus, yet very few about the Easter Bunny? I think more people celebrate with Santa than with The Bunny--it seems anthropomorphism is a harder sell

2) This song was written by The Kiboomers, two early education teachers who are passionate about the power of music to help kids learn. Tell us about a teacher who had an impact on your life. I think I've written about my love of travel that is thanks to my 7th grade social studies teacher, Mr. Merle Smith.  I even sent him a postcard from one of my travels.

3) Legend has it that the Easter Bunny was introduced to America in the 1700s by German immigrants. These children waited for a magic creature who left colored eggs. Today's kids dye Easter eggs themselvesWhen did you most recently color eggs? it's been years--decades, even!

4) The Easter Bunny is usually shown carrying a wicker basket filled with eggs, toys and candy. Is there any wicker in the room you're in right now? yes, I have a wicker basket filled with yarn

5) While marshmallow Peeps are manufactured all year around, they are most popular at Easter. Do you prefer the chicks or the bunnies? I have never had a Peep--I do not like marshmallows

6) A little time in the microwave can do ugly things to a Peep. Have you ever nuked a Peep? I have not, but my sister and her best friend did and made a major mess
7) Would you prefer a hollow or a solid chocolate bunny? solid

8) A traditional American Easter dinner usually includes glazed ham or roast lamb. Which would you rather have as your main course? I think I'd rather have glazed ham
9) Easter is considered the season of rebirth. What makes you feel refreshed or rejuvenated? having time to myself

Ah, so maybe the Peep thing isn't a myth (as I suspected).

Does Mr. Smith know you became a teacher?

Now I'm curious about Peeps in the microwave!

I see what happens to a marshmallow in fire. I can only imagine the mess it would make in a microwave. Happy Easter!

#5 You are not missing much, if you want to know what a marshmallow tastes like, eat a spoon full of sugar.
I think marshmallow were invited by a person who wanted to give the kids a sugar high.

I was hoping for the easy preparation and clean up of a pasta dinner, too, but the kids want ham, so ham it is. As far as I'm concerned, you're not missing anything with the Peeps. Nasty things!

Time to yourself! Yes! I never get that. It is very rare. Sometimes in the summer when Karl is at work and when Josh is in his room.
I think peeps are so gross. I Loved your answers! Have a blessed Easter weekend.
