Easter Reality

On Saturday afternoon, Rich and I decided we better stop procrastinating and go buy the Easter treats. We were in charge of the Easter egg hunt at my sister's house, plus I wanted to at least have some small Easter baskets. When Rich arrived at the bulk section of Winco, there was no more Easter candy. Walmart, nothing. Target, gone. So Rich decided to get creative. He said he felt like the dad who shops for the Christmas stocking stuffers on Christmas Eve at 7-11. We searched far and wide for plastic eggs for the egg hunt (along with a pretty good group of other procrastinators!) Then we scrounged together a crazy assortment of baskets we that already had. Here is what the children found on Sunday morning. At least he found some jelly beans. Life is so funny!

Who needs "peeps" anyway? My kids would have loved the Sunny D:).

Everyone was happy enough (except Beth and Adam who wanted Symphony bars like the big kids). I think the sugar-free gum was ridiculously out of place, but we obey the dentist. : )

Those were perfect! Our children are happy to have candy in any form: a basket... a package...whatever :). Should we call it the joy of sugar?! Next time all you have to do is drive to Palm Desert, the land of retired folk with no little ones around, where you go into the grocery store the day after Easter and then is a plenitude of Easter candies and trimmings! Hilarious.

It looks like the perfect basket to me!
