Easter Snack Time


“These walnuts are really good, but what’s that you say? There will be eggs? It’s too soon for the birds to lay eggs, isn’t it? Otherwise I’d think about helping myself.”

“No-no-no-no-no!” says the bunny. “Not now, Lincoln. They’re for Easter. But you can’t have them yet. I have to paint them first.”

“What? Aw, no. You can’t fool me that way. I can see they’re already painted. Just look at them!” 

And sure enough, the eggs Anneli buys look like it’s Easter every day.

Happy Easter, everyone.


Chickens lay the Easter eggs,

Rabbits like to paint them,

Lincoln likes to steal the eggs,

So, he’s not a saint then.


Lincoln tries to rob a nest,

Sticks his head right in there,

Momma bird gives him a peck,

Feels just like a pin there.


Maybe it’s a better plan

Not to steal the birds’ eggs,

Walnuts do taste very good,

Looking cute, the squirrel begs.


But who cares about the day

That the folks call Easter,

Lincoln eats his walnut snack, 

Sitting on his keister.

  1. So fun! Bunnies is sooo cute. I’m curious why you spelt your name that way? English is so fascinating.

    • My name is mispronounced so much, I thought it would help with how to say it. Lots of times people think it’s “A Nellie” and I hate that. But the proper spelling is Anneli. Glad you like the bunny. BTW, Lincoln has a girlfriend! It’s spring.

  3. What a fun post and quite believable but what really caught my attention was your hyphenated name–Anne-li? Did I miss something?

  6. Great rhyme for that last line. Our little squirrels are very fond of almonds. Lol. And our eggs look just like yours. I’m partial to the green ones. Happy Easter, Anneli.

  11. Anneli, your little picture story is just too cute!
    Squirrels visit us again and again in our garden. We live right on the edge of the forest and that is why they keep coming back to us in the garden and at the house and see what we have to nibble for them.
    We have built a small nut house for the squirrels where they have to open the lid and get the nuts out.
    They learned that very quickly!
    Happy Easter, Anneli! 🐇

    • That is so great that you have these visitors and I love the story about the “nut house.” It just happens that “the nuthouse” is slang for an insane asylum. But sometimes it seems pretty crazy around here with the squirrels, so the expression may be quite fitting. Our place is also near the edge of town and we have a lot of birds and little animals come by here. It is a joy to see them, and I’m happy to her that you have the same pleasures.
