Make our own Easter Chocolates.
Sure...no problem. we'll add that in to the Saturday evening schedule of get kids to bed at reasonable time, tidy house, ensure kids are good and asleep, crochet, sew, tuck child one or two back into bed quickly before they peek down to the kitchen, fill plastic Easter Eggs, hide them around the house or yard......oh, yeah, and sleep....sweet sleep, oh how I miss thee....

Anyhow, back to the point of the matter. For the last 2 days B has had a fever of Near Biblical Proportions (ya see what I did there?! huh? did ya?!!) and has been wandering around like a Zombie (thats TWO - I'm on a ROLL), when not whimpering in misery on the couch......And we went to the big family Easter Gathering on Good Friday - a 2 hour drive to my sister-in-law's, 5 hours of enjoyment, hard boiled egg decorating, and a WONDERFUL, if not overly Kosher, Ham Dinner....We got home at half-past stupid o'clock, threw our barely-asleep progeny in bed fully clothed, and passed out for the night. So when did we get to make these chocolates? Right now. Saturday night, 10:15 pm, and we're filling the pastel coloured plastic egg-shaped bunny poops with home-made, dairy free chocolate bunnies, chicks, and carrots....

The coolest thing about the need to create dairy-free chocolate, is that we're actually getting super yummy chocolates this year..

and we made them ourselves!!! Okay, well, maybe we didn't make the chocolate part. Bulk Barn provided those for a bit of a fee. But you get the idea.
