We had a lot to squeeze in before nine, including Easter baskets. I was most excited about giving the littles the "Jesus Storybook Bible." Originally, I had planned to get a Bible for Chloe this Easter and was looking for a kid-friendly Bible. I purchased this one based on reviews and a sales associate's suggestion. However, after talking with a few Mommy friends, I've decided to get Chloe a "big girl" Bible for her 5th birthday, and gave this to the littles as a joint gift this Easter.
Chloe's Easter Basket- Disney just re-released Peter Pan from the Disney Vault, so this was the main gift that I included in Chloe's basket. In addition, I included some cute chunky jewelry that seems to be popular with little girls. (You may recognize one of the necklaces from the egg hunt that we attended the day before. I couldn't help myself and I gave it to her a day early because it complimented her outfit so well:)) Many of the other items were dollar items from Target and the Dollar Tree.
Evan's Easter Basket- Evan's main gift was the Cars 2 blu-ray. He has a slight obsession with cars! Another item that I was glad that I included was Spiderman bubble bath. The littles have literally been begging to be bathed! Wow! Who knew all it took was some bubbles? :)
It was so sweet to watch the littles go through their baskets. FYI, Chloe's hair is a little crazy because we set it with sponge curlers during the night.
These were wind-up toys that Chloe and Evan spotted at the Dollar Tree a few weeks before Easter. I went back the following day to pick up a couple before they sold out.
I thought that these bunny sunglasses were a good alternative to the bunny ears that I've re-gifted over the last few years;)
It was still a little too early for a little someone.
It was such a fun morning celebrating God's ultimate sacrifice and gift to us. Hallelujah! He is risen!
