we don’t really celebrate easter (at least not as a religious holiday) so i neglected to blog. this was the first year we made vincent an easter basket of sorts. actually it was more of a bucket. i didn’t want to buy him one of those prepackaged easter baskets because they are usually full of candy he cannot eat and toys he won’t like/can’t play with. so i decided to put together a bucket for him. he loves buckets. we have a few clean ice cream buckets that he carries around all the time, so i figured i’d get him a cute easter bucket to add to his collection.
the toys in the easter section of walmart were crap. pencils, tiny things he would eat and choke on… i got him a stuffed bunny and then went to the regular toy section for the rest of his bucket. the rest was comprised of a jake and the neverland pirates bubble sword, a captain hook doll that talks, and a weird owl toy that lights up with thrown.
i hid the bucket where he likes to hide. in the bottom cabinet of the thing we put the microwave on. he found it pretty fast all toys were played with for about 15 minutes and then we had easter breakfast (eggs, ham, sausage gravy and biscuits)
and that was that! when he gets older we’ll do more. i did plan to dye eggs and then forgot to boil them.. oops..
