Holiday Scrapbook

The Easter Party at the Coop was so wonderful, that I have made a scrapbook to remember the festivities.

As always, upon arrival we a were met by part of the Welcoming Committee.

However, Preparations Began Days Before.

“As you can well imagine, the kitchen was a very busy place. But the problem with chocolate bunnies remained.  The Chicklets really tried not to eat them right aways, but they couldn’t seem to help themselves.”

Easter Eggs were dyed, and so were some of the Chicklets, by accident, of course! All staging and rigging was checked and rechecked.

Then the guests began arriving. After a hearty breakfast of Holly’s corn bread and treats, those who live at The Coop, as well as their guests, had a rest period before dinner.

“The night was filled with a variety show, Story Time (Beth), a coloring contest and a pyjama party, which was be held in the horse barn. As for the adults, there were meetings outlining the next Factory Farm raids and updates form the other Coops.”

THE SHOW WAS A MASSIVE SUCCESS

Chicklet Mary and Peppercorn

“Each year Mary and Peppercorn reprise their Mary and a Lamb skit.  This year they were back with a new version of the old story.”

Poetry

Honey, Lester, Lois and Wings recited poems they had written. You can pause the slides, & lower the icon to read them.

The Sun Is Almost Down, and the Easter Ballet Begins

“The Chicklets, along with Beth, Holly and Melanie, danced the Easter Bunny Ballet. It was a free form ballet, to music by Queen. The women not only danced with the Chicklets, they picked them up and twirled and leaped with them in their arms, for 37 minutes.”

The final act, the spine tingling, EGG DANCE, by MOI!

Every year The Resa’s Egg Committee, makes a different Egg for me. It’s a dance of rebirth and new beginnings.  It takes about forty-five minutes.

The next day, the weather had warmed up, so the Chicklets and their guests had a picnic at the Rubber Duck Pond.

Dear Gigi, as an extra added thank you filled with love, Holly  will recite the special poem she wrote for the poetry slam a couple of years ago. I’m sure Melanie and Beth second the emotion.

I wrote this poem for you.

I want it to be perfect,

its verses soft as  bunny ears

and chicklets sweet as candy corn

beneath the star lit tents.

Let’s shake our tambourines

to Resa’s famous Egg Dance

and float some feathery  kisses to Gigi

For bringing us all here.
