Wisconsin Candy Dish is hosting Fun Monday for March 30, when the topic will be Easter Baskets: Share a story, is it better to give or to receive, what would you like in yours?
Mmm Easter Candy… well, I think a couple more cloth diapers for Keeley would be about all I would want. Oh and Chicks and Rabbits. Love me the chicks and rabbits!
When we were little the Easter Bunny would hide our basket for us. Then we would have to find it on Easter morning. The ‘best’ place mine ever was, was hidden in the dirty clothes hamper. Someone else had to find it for me, because I couldnt find it anywhere! We usually got some candy that we liked with a small chocolate bunny and that was it. I think a lot of people overdo it these days by buying a bunch of junk toys because they feel like they have to do ‘more’–but I think a fluff of candy is about all any kid needs, because to me, that’s not what Easter is about. Also every year my dad likes to color eggs, not sure why, but I bet if I showed up with a kit this year, that he’d break out mom’s old cups and bang around asking her where the vinegar is and tell me to blow through the egg, not suck it out, like I don’t know that already! He always thought that was so funny. I just liked the fact that we got scrambled eggs the next morning! Does anyone know, if you do it with hard boiled instead, are you supposed to eat the eggs, or just use them for hide and seek? I’ve always wondered if the dyes were ‘food grade’ or not?
I’m going to host April 13, the day after Easter, so if you’re a regular reader and you don’t have a blog, and want to participate, let me know and I’ll put your ‘stuff’ in a post on my blog so you can join in the fun. I thought it was about time I hosted as I’ve seen several people that have done it more than 2 times and I haven’t been the lady spiking the punch hostess yet.
