So it's March 31st this year!
do you do Easter Baskets?
what are you going to put in them?
do you do egg hunts?

the night before I'm gonna let Audrey "plant" jelly beans and then put eggs out where they were for her to find the next day.
I'm gonna fill the eggs with little toys or animal crackers, no candy, she doesn't like candy anyway.

I'm currently looking at lists and ideas for her basket so I can start getting stuff.
I'm not sure if we'll do a big egg hunt.
she's gonna have a cute shirt and tutu and I'm gonna get a cheap dress from wal-mart for her Easter/Spring Photos.

We usually do baskets full of candies and usually something to draw with and on since they love it so much. We dye eggs but havent really done much hunting as we dont have a lot of space for it LOL.

~My thanks to *Kiliki* for the siggy and Lucy S for the blinkies~

We do baskets, usually some candy, maybe a new toy or a video game. Then we gave up on public Easter egg hunts and just do it at home. They love it! Last year I made them do a scavenger hunt to find their baskets, it was fun!

We don't do baskets, since my mom usually sends a crapload of candy down anyway! I'll probably do an egg hunt in the backyard though; we did one for the first time last year and Leah LOVED it. I may dye eggs with her this year too, I think she might enjoy that.
Thanks to Kiliki for my super cute siggy!

I'm really excited for Sophia's first Easter! She's obviously too young for an egg hunt, but we will do that next year. I will get her a basket this year. I actually ordered her first thing for it last week; a pocket bib for once she's eating that has a necklace on it. I'll just get a few other small things as well.

do you do Easter Baskets? yes we do
what are you going to put in them? matchbox cars, crayons, books, little things for Tommy, maybe a few pieces of candy. Lily will get a book some lipgloss and small trinkets, and some candy.
do you do egg hunts? We always do one at my moms.

Well, we will probably do something with the in-laws (MIL, FIL, SIL & her family) either at our house or In-laws house. Usually do an egg hunt and have a big meal. Last year we tried flying kites.. which ended up in power lines, bushes, and broken. lol

We also usually go to my parents house. Though this year, we arnt sure what the plans are yet. They may come up here..

Im not sure if our little town will do a big egg hunt or not.. I may find out when the egg hunt is in our old town and go to it.

Baskets usually consist of colors, books, maybe a toy, and then some of the cheapy toys from Dollar Tree..

They get baskets filled with candy and a few small toys/gifts.

We usually have Easter dinner at my moms and do a egg hunt there.
