Easter 2012: A Family Affair!

This year my husband and the family were able to enjoy this holiday together. We wanted to make it extra special. Two years ago, I was in the hospital having my youngest son and I was able to celebrate it with a croissant in the shape of an Easter Bunny. A year ago, we were all in Belgium but Chris had to work. This year was going to be different and we celebrated indeed!! I went shopping at the local Dollar Tree for all the supplies I used for my kid's baskets. They enjoyed them and I don't think it made a difference where the items were purchased!! I try and think of ways to be creative on a budget. (each basket was $8.50 to make!) This years theme was FBI, Military, and Police...fitting as their daddy falls into that category! I like to include a book that will help teach them while they are young. I bought crayons as well in case they wanted to scribble on them...the crayons were a bad idea!! lol.

The day was perfect outside to take pictures, I took advantage!! Especially here in Washington!

The baskets came with a complete FBI kit including glasses!! Loved it!

My 3 year old enjoys bubbles, he must have blown 2 hours worth of bubbles on this day. I am looking forward to more projects that we can do outside, so next it will be sidewalk chalk!! Can't wait to see what they create. For more on how to build a basket on a budget, please click on the video below.
