Today I thought I'd share with you all what's in our Easter baskets this year, in case anyone needs last minute ideas :-)
When it comes to Easter baskets I'm a little torn because 1) I don't want to give the girls much candy---not because I'm a health nut (far from it lol) but because they get REALLY annoying about candy--they spend the next week planning out what they want to eat and when and I just get tired of the whining haha ....and 2) I don't want to substitute toys for candy and have them start to think Easter is like a second Christmas.
So when it comes to our baskets I stick to the "basket only" rule pretty hard core. We do not purchase toys for Easter, etc. unless it's something little that fits in their basket. They do not get to request anything for Easter like they would at Christmas either---the bunny simply fills a basket with some fun little things and they are grateful :-P Then in addition to the baskets the Easter Bunny does hide plastic eggs (last year we put jelly beans in them but the girls didn't even really care about what was in the eggs...they just like finding them)....so this year we will probably just put a penny in each one or something.
So anyways, here's our baskets! And even though I stick to the basket only rule, they do get baskets pretty jam packed full, so don't fear---they are not deprived haha.
So hopefully the girls like their baskets---I love this age when they are happy with bandaids and don't need more expensive items! lol
In other news, I signed Raya up for a little Eric Carle camp at the children's museum that started today, and is 4 Fridays in a row. She's doing it was Sawyer's cousin Gavin...so while they did the camp this morning Gavin's mom and I hung out with the two little kids, and then after camp we alll stayed to play together at the museum and then ate lunch at Panera....fun morning!
Here were the girls today in their matching little tops from Old Navy---on sale for $4! They looked so "cool" hehe
Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter weekend!
