Operation Easter Basket

I tend to over think things, I’ll admit that. With Easter, I know that it isn’t important what she gets in her Easter basket. I know that the most important thing is that she understands that reason that we celebrate Easter. At the same time, there is a part of me that lives for these things. We certainly won’t go overboard for Easter, I tend to use holidays like this to slip in some necessities that we will soon need. Spring clothes, new sandals, a summer hat, swimsuit...all Easter gifts! This works well because I would generally buy her these items anyway, and she will certainly not need them before Easter. I tend to shop all year for all holidays, so when I see small things on clearance or for good prices I grab them up often for Easter baskets, stocking stuffers, etc. I buy as I see things rather than "Easter basket shopping" all at once. Here is what I ended up with!

I will tell you, I am not a fan of all the little junk toys in the Easter isles...or a ton of candy. So, I decided on the following; 
-Books (Because we read at least 3-4 each day)
-Little people princess set, to go with her castle!
-A new water bottle
-Two chunky necklaces (made by ME!! at Belly Buttons & Baby Bottoms)
-Bows to match her new clothes and chunky necklaces (made by Darling Diva Bow-tique)
-Twistables crayons
-Growing wash cloth (because we LOVE bath time)

Then for snacks...of course, a chocolate bunny (this will be rationed by mommy), mini m&m's, Mini Nilla Wafers and Gerber yogurt melts!

Here is the finished product!! 

**I also have plans to make her a pair of my bling flip flops as well, they will be cute with all her spring clothes!** Also available at Belly Buttons & Baby Bottoms I made her a pair last year and they were a huge hit...shes a shoe girl!! 

Happy Easter!!
