OK Ok,  I guess it really a big deal to some but I always like making my girls an Easter basket--even though they are young ladies by now. What I don't like is having all that extra candy laying around. I don't usually put much candy in their basket, I put more non food treats in there but still an Easter basket needs certain things LOL

SO I was looking at the Sunday ads wondering what candy I should buy and how.. I have to get moving on this because Rachel's box HAS to get out today in order for her to get if before her travels for Spring break in London.  First of all, anyway I would think to buy their favorites would add up to way too much money. Then of course there are all the other things I get them.....

I was getting ready to go to the grocery store and I dawned on me.... call my neighbor...maybe she would want to split the candy stash with me!  When I first proposed this to her,she said they weren't doing Easter baskets  :0(  but I asked, even for  "your boys"?  and she said NO.. OK .

I had to admit I was kind of surprised but her kids don't eat candy like mine do not, so I could understand.   Then she changed her mind.   I told her since I was running out to the store, I would get the candy and we could go from there.

So now all the kids will get a traditional Easter basket, with not as much frill but at that age, it is just the tradition that matters.

Now to go and get Rachel's box on its way.

Just out of curiosity but have you thought of putting a Scentsy buddy in their easter baskets? I don't know your childrens ages but I know i have a 2 year old little girl and she loves carrying around the scentsy buddy and it always makes everywhere we go smell great. Just a thought.....
