Well, peeps, Easter is just around the corner, and if you have kids, you are likely plotting Easter basket surprises. Kids everywhere are anticipating what might be in their basket on Sunday morning. I know moms who make “Summer Time Baskets” full of flip-flops, beach towels, and pool toys. Others make fruit baskets, and still others fill the baskets full of candy. Some families go for themed baskets, while others just grab whatever is on sale at Wal-Mart (don’t knock it till you try it!).
I’m no different. I love a good Easter Basket full of treats. We always go for “goodies with a purpose.” Cd’s from popular Christian artists, age appropriate devotion books, Christian bracelets, and journals are the star attractions of our baskets, although Phineas and Ferb cd’s and Easter apparel have been known to make an appearance. And, of course, tons of chocolate filled plastic eggs. What’s Easter without chocolate? But not those stinking chocolate bunnies. Those things are deplorable. They never taste good. Nope, the Lovejoy’s stick with Reese’s….God’s chocolate.
So, what about you? Do you make Easter Baskets? If you do, what are you putting in them?
