Easter Baskets

Those of you who know us well know that we are not big on polluting religious holidays with fairy stories.  The Easter Bunny does not come to our house, and our younger kids probably have no idea what he has to do with Easter.  They do get Easter baskets, but we use a fabulous book my friend Missy gave Stella back in 2009 to relate the items in their basket to the story of the crucifixion and resurrection of our Savior.  This year Damon read the book to the kids before we even brought out the baskets...
Corinne was super excited about the white in her basket...

Watts loved his bow tie, and insisted on wearing it to church, regardless of the fact that it did not match his Easter ensemble...


We managed to hold them off long enough for a group photo...
Or two...
Then it was time to dig in...
Chocolate that is safe for Stella and Corinne is hard to find, so I was excited that these Cadbury Eggs were safe.  Then Damon pointed out that they were probably choking hazards for Corinne.  Oops.
All our kids love books, so they were super excited to have some new ones in their baskets.  We have a bit of a children's book obsession in our house...
Corinne was excited to get a book about Beauty and "da BEAST!" as she calls him...
Isn't she the cutest in her itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny, yellow, polka-dot tankini?
The girls can't wait to sport these on the beach this summer...
The superhero lego books were very exciting.  Just check out Stella's expression for proof...

Happy Easter!
