After the excitement of Marion's arrival to the Sweetpea household we weren't expecting more excitement to come knocking at our door. The Sweetpeas were all sitting quietly in the house the other morning and we heard some strange noises coming from outside the house. Little Sweetpea, Marion and Elf went to investigate (they are a brave little team) and found an empty box, it looked like a Rabbit hutch and had an un-eaten carrot inside .......
Little Sweetpea became excited and worried, the Easter bunny had come to visit but where was he now? Marion, Elf and all the Sweetpeas looked around and found some empty chocolate wrappers, they looked like chocolate egg wrappers.
As they were looking they didn't see the little Easter Bunny hiding behind the daffodils.
The Easter Bunny decided he didn't want to be kept in a hutch but wanted to explore the Sweetpea household. Now, Mr Bunny was a clever little thing, he was fluent in English, French and Bunny but was getting more and more worried when he couldn't understand a word these feathered creatures spoke.
And this furry creature spoke yet another language ....
Oh me, oh my thought Mr Bunny, why did I run away, what have I done, who are all these strange speaking creatures .....
He hide behind some more flowers with what looked like a fellow bunny having a snack, this little chap was however very quiet indeed.
In the meantime the Sweetpeas were still looking for the missing bunny. They looked under all the flowers but found chocolate eggs instead of a bunny.
Little Sweetpea then found Mr Bunny. He told her how worried he had been and little Sweetpea hugged him tight and told him everything would be alright.
She showed him the little eggs she had found, Mr Bunny said he had hidden them just for her and the older Sweetpeas.
He was introduced to Marion and Elf and little Sweetpea tucked them into bed after a long day and read them a bedtime story.
I would like to BIG thank you to the lovely Monique for sending little sweetpea the gorgeous Mr Bunny. Monique makes the most gorgeous dolls and felted creatures, please do go and look at her lovely Etsy shop. Mr Bunny has settled in really well. My husband did have quite a scare the other day when middle sweetpea came running to him saying that Ted (who looks so sweet and innocent below) had stolen Mr Bunny!
Middle sweetpea picked up the dropped Mr Bunny and told Mr Sweetpea how upset she was as his eyes had been eaten and his scarf can got stuck round his waist - he looked like he had his hands up to surrender :-( Now Mr Sweetpea was really worried and was starting to panic he would have to move Ted out of the house as he knew how much little sweetpea and I loved Mr Bunny.
Thank goodness they were just holding Mr Bunny upside down and back to front! Phew! (No bunnies were hurt by the mischief Ted and Mr Bunny is now back safe and sound with Marion, Elf and little Sweetpea.)
