|Hello, Easter basket in the light...|
|Good night Easter basket in the dark!|
I had fun with Tristan's basket this year! I had fun last year, too, but he was too little to notice...and the Easter before that we were in NICU. Wow, this is his third Easter? ::thud::
Instead of using that annoying grass I filled one of the baskets we had hanging around with a fun spring chick garland.
His eggs contain a Peep each except for a mystery egg with a fluffy puffy toy chick inside. There is a hopping rabbit and a Hape Dune Buggy car. Carrot bubbles. The book was put out by H&M and is filled with fun art. I thought the elephant was a bank so imagine how excited I was when I saw it on sale and allowed myself a closer look (I'd only peeked the price tag before - EEK!) only to find that it LIGHTS UP! and was $3 down from $20. Sweet.
His Alabama Grandma sent some treats, too, that will magically appear midday ^-^
On another note I feel it is important to give this particular PSA: if your child jumps out of the bathtub and then zooms through a wall of black/blue/white leftover birthday streamers it will dye your child! Dead serious. Tristan has black and blue stripes and a dot on his nose - and YES it stains their skin. FUN! It was hysterical, though, and I'm glad I'm not the sort to get in a tight bundle about how he'll look in pictures. It will be something we'll never forget. But! consider yourself PSA'ed!
Let's keep track:
- dyed him red with kool-aid
- dyed him black and blue with streamers
