Our Ramstein AB assignment was completed on March 25, 1994, and on Easter morning – which was Sunday, April 3rd in 1994 – we were all moved into our new rental house in Hetzerath, Germany.
Our dining room table was set for Easter breakfast while David first looked around the house to see what the Easter Bunny had left overnight.
David discovered an Easter plate of chocolate Easter eggs and grass left behind by the Easter Bunny; these initial photos turned out very light and out of focus because of all the bright white walls in the house.
Here David sits on the bench of our wood stove or, “Kachelöfen,” holding a basket and eggs that he found on Easter morning.
Off in the corner of the house David finds a gift basket left behind by the Easter Bunny – which seemed to happen every Easter in our home.
The Easter Bunny seemed to always bring small gifts on Easter morning, along with the traditional chocolate and Easter eggs.
David shows off a, “Free Willy” video that was a welcomed gift from the Easter Bunny to David.
Our living room was simply huge, which dwarfs David as he opens another gift from the Easter Bunny.
A Disney, “Fox and the Hound” video was another gift from the Easter Bunny – our dining room is in the background behind David.
Here David works on a small package from the Easter Bunny, who often seemed to use lots of tape on his packages – just like Santa.
The present is a new black and white wrist watch, and the fact that the Easter Bunny brought small gifts on Easter morning was a nice addition to our Easter morning activities.
This is our, “Kachelöfen” from a more distant perspective, but since it wasn’t in the kitchen eating area and in a little used portion of the living room, it wasn’t used as much as the one in Monzelfeld had been.
