Perusing the Easter aisle at Smith’s, Xander, Mary and I broke into a happy dance–“Chocolate bunnies, sparkle eggs, Peeps!” At least one passerby chortled as he passed us, but we didn’t care; we were busily filling the cart with the trifecta of Easter candies– Cadbury Eggs, Starburst Jelly Beans and Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs.
Well, maybe Xander did mention that I am “so immature” — whatever.
“go through the maze, if you cheat you can’t eat candy”
and at the bottom of the page:
“p.s. the maze is impossible.”
Our final addition was a chocolate chip, chocolate covered bunny cake. I make one every year (because we never have enough chocolate on Easter). It nearly didn’t make it into the package because the boys nearly convinced me that it wouldn’t survive the trip– we should just eat it.
Happy Easter! Somebunny loves you.
p.s. I just realized that all the grown up moms probably sent their missionary pictures of Christ and inspirational quotes. Poor Ben will have to deal with his immature mother.
I want to be you when I grow up. What a darling gift for Ben. And inspirational things have their place, of course, but they don’t replace sugar in a 19-year-old’s heart (or mine, to be honest.)
Not that you’re more grown up than me, of course, just that I need to have hope that when Josh is 19, I’ll be able to manage Easter boxes.
Ben and his immature mom will be the envy of all the other missionaries. I’m sure he is good at sharing.
Hoppy Easter sweet friend.
This. Is. Awesome.
Your a great mom and those are some great little helpers. There will be plenty of sacred to partake of on Easter Morning at the MTC but there will surely be a deficit of Easter activity sheets, math worksheets, fork enabled Easter egg hunts and candy and chocolate bunny cakes, at10 lbs. it just means there will be plenty of love to share.
Wow! What an awesome Easter box. If, thirty years from now, I end up going on a mission, do you promise to send me one?
Oh, I love it! Ben will get a lot of inspirational quotes already…most everyone will be envious of his 10 pound package of love.
Your family antics make me smile and give me ideas.
Love the scavenger hunt. Love the stickers on the outside. Love the bunny joke. He’s going to be the hit of the MTC for sure.

Are you taking applications for kids? 🙂 OK… I’m almost 31 years old and I have a kid of my own but I want a cool Easter egg hunt in a box!!!
I love your immaturity. And don’t you know, all of Ben’s companions/roommates are going to love it too!
Maturity is over-rated anyway! If only we could see the delight on his face when he opens it!
Love, love love everywhere!
Somebunny over here loves you =)
I love this! I do something similar to our kids who live out of state. Your ideas are so cool, I’m totally going to steal some for next year.
I love this post, love your creative family. Ben is so blessed to have you all. I bet he enjoyed the box so much! Fun.
