Easter 2013 and an Easter basket for an 18 month old

 Better late than never! Easter 2013

A little disclaimer before I move onto Sammy's Easter basket: Easter is a very special holiday for us.  While the Easter egg hunts, bunnies, and new toys are fun,  we celebrate because Easter gives Christianity it's redemptive Grace.  Sitting down for a nice dinner with family and rejoicing in salvation is truly something very special.

This Easter was extra special because we had just found out our baby's gender and were excited to share the news with our family.  I had planned a fun gender reveal with gender specific candy in Easter Eggs and some gender specific frosted carrot cake cupcakes and then whomp whomp, Paul went and told the whole world who of course let it slip to our parents.  High five to the face Paul, thanks. 

Here's the little basket I had put together.  It's a GIRL!!

We made Sammy a simple Easter basket and filled it with a lot of fun toddler friendly items.
  • A new book and ball from the target dollar spot
  • New sippy cup (target sells these seasonal munckin cups with straws for $3, they are the best)
  • Eggs filled with
    • Goldfish
    • Yogurt drops
    • Animal crackers
    • Socks
A few new outfits for summer
His big gift was a water table purchased at Costco.  This has been SO awesome to have on the deck.  It keeps him busy while I cook and he loves it.  I see many years of fun ahead with it.
