Easter 2015

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  On behalf of all of us, I'd like to wish you all a very happy Easter!

Mom has been putting out some little decorative things lately, and I thought I should check them out!

"Hey, what's this stuff, Cam?"

Cam came over to see, then gave an "Oh, no!"  Apparently, there are some Ao4 traditions I hadn't heard about yet.  One such custom is posing with Easter decorations.  That didn't sound too bad until ...

"Maggie, I WILL get you for th---oh, wait. Mom has treats!  Really tasty treats ..."

Apparently, there are lots of treats involved with Easter posing.  Especially with a little something Mom calls Snooter Hanging.  Cam has attempted this only once before, but she did great! I decided I should see what all this tradition involved.  Especially the "treats" part.

"Whatcha got there, Mom?"
"Must ... focus ... "

It seemed like the longer Cam kept the little bunny mini-quilt on her snooter, the more treats she got.  Wow.  Interesting!

"I think I'm ready to give it a go, Mom.  Especially if I get treats!"
"This isn't as easy as it looks!"

Cam gave me a few pointers, then stepped aside to let me try.  She stuck around  in case Mom had more treats for her  to lend moral support.  She's sweet like that!  Now, let's have a go at this!

"It's falling, Mom!  And it's crooked!  And ... can I have another treat?"
"Mom?  You cut my ear off!"
"Sorry, Cam.  I was concentrating on Maggie.  Here's another treat."

Mom and Cam said I did really great for my first attempt at Snooter Hanging!  After Mom called "Good enough!" and whisked the quilt away, she put a little Easter display on the sitzbank and asked us girls to pose by it.

"She still has treats, Maggie."
"That's why I'm here!"

There is nothing wrong with being food-motivated!!!

"I think the treat supply is dwindling.  We need a big finish!"
"I've got a plan.  Hold on."

I moved fast to put my plan into action!

"Perfect, Mags!  Happy Easter, everyone!"
"Happy Easter!!!"

"And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him."

Mark 16:6

From all of us at Ao4 Headquarters ... have a blessed Easter!

«Христос Воскрес»  “Christ has risen.”
«Воїстено Воскрес!»  "Indeed He has risen!"

Cammie, Mags, and our bipeds.
