  • Yes I do - even the adult on (24). They each have their own kind of candy the like so I specifically get that for them. I don't keep sweets in the house usually. My oldest likes the little bunny and chicks sweet tarts - and skittle. My middle one is in the AF and I am sending him and his roommate a basket of homemade cookies, brownies and cupckes (something they both are missing). My youngest is 14 and he wants reese egg, peeps and movie card.

  • Well my sister is 4 years younger than me and my brother is 6 years younger than me. My mom got us an easter basket even though we didn't believe until we all stopped believing. I am the oldest I stopped believing first I got an easter basket while my sister and brother still believed, but once they stopped bellieving we didn't get an easter basket anymore. I think she did that was cause my mom probably felt bad for getting one and not the other lol. My kids are 6 and 3 and one on the way but when they get old enough I probably wont do the basket, but I might get them something for easter.

  • Of course! Heck, my in laws still give my husband and I, 39 years old, a small Easter Basket. You don't have to go all out like you would for the younger one, but some candy and some teenage geared things would be nice.

    My mom stopped when we moved out of the house, but now has what she calls a 'community' Easter Basket for Easter day when we come to visit.

  • No, I don't give my 14 yr old an easter basket. She doesn't care. She does like to have the big traditional family dinner though. Which makes me VERY happy. :o))))))
