cover your kids eyes and ears!! WARNING EASTER BUNNY SPOILER!!!

So the last few Easters have not been good. Either I have a puking child for 24 hours during Easter or seriously I remember that it is Easter at midnight the Saturday night before. Yea, that happened but I have really good reasoning to have forgotten.

Last year I bought baskets that seem durable and have a cotton lining so this year we are going to fill them with kid made "grass" and the Easter eggs that we decorate and put them out on the couch before bed. (this is kinda a Christmas stocking theory) Then the Easter Bunny will come by and take the decorated eggs (my sister in laws idea) that we put in the baskets the night before and hide them for the kids to find in the morning. Then he will fill them with fresh fruit, spring colored packaged breakfast bars or mabey homemade muffins?? (i heard that since the puking child may have been a result of too much candy in the morning and a flu bug at the same time sweets wont be the only thing in the basket, too tempting with no alternative!) BUT he will be putting some treats in to be enjoyed later in the day BUT not too much. He may also put books and good toys in and mabey a movie, all Easter themed of course.

This helps with the few problems i do have with Easter....

Cheap ugly baskets that get thrown away or broken before the next easter, having 2 sets of easter eggs 1 set the kids helped decorate and one set that is decorated that the kids dont know about that "the bunny" leaves, And last but not least too much candy. That is always one thing i over do every christmas and Easter with my thinking that only one handful of candy will make the basket look empty.

So there's my new Easter Ideas, I am so excited to do this! With Easter being almost 2 weeks away i'd better get working on this!! I'll deffinatly be taking pictures and will add them to this post after Easter! See you then!
