Easter Traditions

Here are the clues for Owen's Easter basket hunt this year.  I can't believe that my mom would write these for all six of us.  Just one is hard enough for me.  I'll add some basket-hunting pictures tomorrow.

Good morning Owen! Guess who it is?
It’s your favorite friend in the basket biz!
That’s just a joke that’s not very funny.
It is just me, the Easter Bunny.
I brought you a basket of gifts this year,
I thought it would bring you lots of cheer.
Now I just have to think where I put it…
It couldn’t be on the potty, could it?

No, no, no I didn’t leave it here,
If somebody flushed, it might disappear
And what if you woke and needed to go,
With a basket in your way, you never know…
So you see it couldn’t go here,
Check in the place mommy sits to steer.

 Oh no, this place would never do,
What if someone drove off without a clue.
Then you’d never find the basket I left
And someone would be guilty of theft!
So it must be somewhere back inside
Maybe where Halloween treats hide.

This would have been a good spot I guess
But too many treats in one place is a mess.
Oh yes, I brought you lots of treats,
But they’re for the whole family to eat.
But first I suppose you need to find,
Where I have left that basket behind.
I know somewhere I haven’t tried!
The seat of the truck that James likes to ride!

Darn! I thought this would be the place,
But sadly, there just wasn’t space.
There is a basket though, I swear.
And I am a very honest hare.
I guess you’ll have to keep on looking,
Perhaps it’s where you do the cooking.

Congratulations Owen dear!
You’ve found your basket for the year!
Your Nana and Papa helped me a lot.
Call and say thanks for the things that you got.
Some of these things are just for your brother,
Please share with him, your father, and mother.
I am gone now, but have no fear,
Because I’ll be back again next year.
