Easter baskets my mom made for the boys (+ even a combo basket for me and Mike!)
Mike and I are atheist so making a big to do about Easter might seem a little strange. We don't personally do church or anything like that, but like Christmas we simply see it as a time to spend with family. Of course I also really love gift baskets so I rarely miss an opportunity to whip something together for the boys. While the full view of their baskets might look totally overkill, they're comprised of a handful of Spring activities I had stowed away until the weather broke. I racked up on little gardening tools in the Target dollar spot, got some glow in the dark bracelets/sticks from the Dollar Tree, and picked up some super fun toys for Toby to play with from Michaels. I also snagged the pipe cleaners and pom poms from Michaels, too. We've been having a blast with both of those as silly as it sounds! Oh and Linden's Hide and Squeak eggs (they're so inexpensive and FUN!) and Wash & Dry dish set are both from Amazon. Each of the boys only got a couple of pieces of chocolate in the large eggs in their basket. Mainly because they join in on the Easter egg hunt next door and HOLY EGGS! There are HUNDREDS! It was so fun to watch them all try to scramble to get the most. Linden was a total natural. Pip was his egg hunting dog, too.
We spent Good Friday over with Mike's family. Mike had to work so he stayed at home to sleep (boo!), but we had a lovely time with everyone. Of course they dyed eggs, decorated cupcakes, had a scavenger hunt, and then hunted for eggs. It was a long and tiring day, and poor baby bear was a little bit bonkers by the end of it! Grammie Terri made the grandkids super fun Easter baskets, too, so needless to say the kids were stoked. So many baskets!
