In spite of her best intentions, Saucy just couldn't get her act together for Easter weekend.  Proving once again that little Jewish girls should really mind their own business at this time of year.


When making lemon cupcakes for Veto, she forgot to fill them with the delicious lemon curd filling that she made, the same lemon curd that required a trip to the market for just one more lemon.  You know the stuff.   She just had to make it.   And with the leavened cupcakes.  Oy vey.


When she and Loopy were assembling baskets to deliver around town, they fussed and fought with that nasty basket netting.  You know the stuff.  It makes you grumpy and you say very bad words.  The Rabbi would not approve, of more than just the vocabulary.  


It was decided to deliver the basket in the middle of the night would be the thing to do.  After Saturday Night Live they ventured out.  It was dark.   Apparently it was too dark to read the tags because Saucy really wasn't cut out to be an Easter bunny... it must be a sign that the Rabbi does not approve.  The wrong baskets were left on the wrong doorsteps.


Adding insult to injury, the interior light of the Jeep would not turn off and things like that just drive Saucy crazy.  Adding insanity to insult and injury, Saucy was hopelessly and completely lost... in her small city.  It was another sign from God: Easter is not your holiday, girlfriends. Go home and sit Seder already.  Oy!


It worked out.  At least Sassy got her little special cheer-up basket with SweetTarts and a bunny with a baby that reminded Loopy and Saucy of Sassy and The Sprout.  Things started to look up as the sun rose.

Oh, and the sandwiches. Saucy put smoked ham in the sandwiches.  That's tomorrow's story, she'll tell you about the sandwiches tomorrow.  That reminds Saucy of a little story her Rabbi told her once.  After hearing about how delicious chops and spare ribs were, he decided he simply had to have a taste.  He flew to a very remote island, took a room at a nice resort and made way to the restaurant where he ordered the most expensive pork dish on the menu.

As he eagerly awaited his meal, he heard his name called.  Who does he see but ten members of his Congregation, who, his luck, are staying at the same spot.  Just then, the waiter appeared carrying a huge roasted pig with an apple in its mouth.

The Congregants agape, the Rabbi (who was always a quick thinker) said, "Oy! Order an apple in this place, and look how they serve it?"

It's an old joke.  Saucy apologizes.


The girls made it to see Hannah Montana The Movie in the afternoon.  What can they say?  All the malls were closed.  They forgot.  Remember, it's not really their holiday.  The movie was so incredibly cute and sweet and funny and if you keep this in mind: it's Hannah Montana after all, and you keep your expectations in line with that mantra, you will likely enjoy it also.  Saucy thought she was all over and done with enjoying movies purely for the sets, the costumes and the cameo appearances but apparently not.  Oh, and the Hoedown Throwdown didn't hurt.

Michelle thinks that all holidays that can be celebrated belong to anyone happy at heart! You did the Bunny proud, your Rabbi would completely understand :)

ps. muahahaha - "order an apple"

I took some very jaded 11 yr. olds to Hannah Montana. Hannah is sooooo over in middle school, you know. But we had free passes and surprise, the girls came out singing and dancing. It was very cute--the Hoedown Throwdown was a fav!

Loved the rabbi story! All the mishaps with the Easter baskets are what the memories are made of--enjoy them--I did!

it's the heart that matters most & you've definitely got a supersized one. :)

Well, Miss Saucy, I actually think you did a FINE job! This little Christian girl STILL hasn't got the swing of Passover Seder recitations, even after 30 years of family dinners:

"Barach Attah.... um.....Adonai.... ahhhhhh...Elohenu...oh what the heck, pass the Maneschevitz!" ;0)

Grace said...

you so crack me up! I have such a bad cold and could not celebrate Easter and was feeling bumed and as usual I read your blog and crack up! Happy Passover/Easter! You and your family are amazing and I am sure your Rabi is so proud. Hugs Grace

The baskets were so cute! And I LOVED the movie. I laughed so hard I hurt. The Hoedown Throwdown was fun.

Laura said...

I'm sure the lucky recipients of the baskets didn't mind if someone else's name was on them. Very thoughtful! Happy Easter/Passover!

Thanks again Bunnies!! The girls tore into the baskets and CJ was thrilled with the "Mommy look a big chicky for me and a little chicky for CD, a big bunny for me and a little bunny for CD, a big egg for me and a little egg for CD..." Very sweet!!! CD devored her chocolate and tried to eat the lollipop through the plastic! Your "sweetness" was very much appreciated!
CJ is looking forward to the movie on Wednesday! She even made a shirt to wear!!

How sweet of you to deliver those baskets. Taylor went to the movie Saturday with one of her girlfriends. She loved it. Funny joke - new to me.

My sons name is Silas, but we always call his siley myrus;

Of course being a JB fan, we don't like Miley Cyrus because she was 'mean' to Nick J, but they seem to have made up and are friends now so... wait, how old am I again? 44?!! Why am I getting caught up in the DRAMA?! :) I guess because I am over the moon for those brothers. :)

We saw the movie on the Saturday it opened. The 14yo and 10yo each brought a friend and I brought my mom. We all loved it. My mom's in-love with Billy Ray. It's ok, she's from Chattanooga, TN:)

This movie was my favorite of the season. Disney sure hit that nail on the head. It was quite amazing.

That sucks that you wound up putting the wrong baskets on the wrong doorsteps but I'm sure they were happy all the same! It shows that you were thinking of them and thats what counts!
