Put together a basket for kiddo. Assorted candies, a couple chocolate bunnies, a plush bunny animal . I asked which egg coloring kit she wanted this year. She's "too old" to color eggs by her statement. She's pushing away and making her own ground, now, and I'm proud of her for it.
Makes me feel pretty old and useless though.

You could always just tell her what my parents told me when I was "too old" for an Easter basket anymore.

My mom made the hands down best baskets (and christmas stockings) ever.

I had "real" gifts, in really nice baskets (the kind from craft stores that people use as home decor) with fake flowers beautifully arranged and real ribbons twined around the baskets.
Candy included Egg-Ems, Peeps, cadberry eggs, hershys assorted chocolets, reese's eggs and a chocolet bunny, preferably the Chopper Bunny (based on an old family joke involving the easter bunny and a motercycle) which the don't make anymore.
Also, nail polishes, gift cards, fancy soaps and lotions and whatnot, jewelery, Super balls, random little toys, and any other small item she could fit in there. One year she had to do two baskets and some how shoved a pair of half chaps in the bottem of one.
Also, always a stuffed bunny.

I never could figure out how to repack all the stuff into the baskets (or stockings). Once you break into these suckers they seem to explode. If I took the easter grass out I could usually get MOST of  it back in for transport.

My cousin went through one of my christmas stockings one year and them proceded to lecture her mother for being such a slacker in the stocking department.  grin

When I finally get to do stockings and baskets I'm gonna need lessons from mom. She claims it is an art that cannot be taught, but I'm going to have to try. That particular tradition is too awesome to die.

Peeps

Speaking of peeps, at one of my old jobs we designated a box of peeps as our new bosses b/c our bosses were completely incompetent. We put the peeps up in a corner and addressed them as our superiors, asking them to make our decisions for us.  They were excellent bosses.

My daughters Bday is March 27th and she has candy left over from the pinata.

I got her 5 water pistols and a bunch of bubbles with assorted wands instead of sweets.  The easter bunny is bringing her a LARGE water gun, she got soaked by her cousins last year.  That wont happen this year.

This is what prompted the gifts...

"Daddy, I need a weapon!  I'm tired of getting soaked by <names of cousins>!"

She just turned 4

There is no Easter this year. My dog already killed the bunny. I reported this about a week ago. Pay attention, people!

I'm getting to where I can hide my own eggs  cheesy


But I don't need to ... our free range chickens do it for us.

Sometimes I wonder how these traditions got started: when the snow melted, did parents send their kids out to look for eggs that the hens had laid various places during the winter Huh?

"Those are bunny eggs," some wag probably said.

And retailers all over America are pleased.

Cadbury cream eggs. Probably a good thing they don't sell them all year.

In his defense, I'm quite certain the second half of that statement can be appended to a whole host of things.

For example:


I wrap it in bacon... and it made Mike Irwin very cross.


There is no Easter this year. My dog already killed the bunny... and it made Mike Irwin very cross.

I once made a joke about Mike Irwin... and it made Mike Irwin very cross.

Have kiddo check out the Czech Kraslice, the eggs done with batik techniques and sometimes called "stained glass window eggs."  Definitely beyond the PAAS dunkin' and dryin' drill.
