Grown Up Easter Basket

Hello, friends…I hope you had a nice weekend. We spent ours visiting family and friends, which is always good for my soul.

With Easter quickly approaching, I’m reminded of the fond memories of the kiddies waking up early on Easter Sunday to follow trails of little chocolate eggs throughout the house to find the larger hidden eggs.

One particular year that sticks out in my mind was when our boys set-up camp in the bathtub, convinced they would finally “catch” the Easter Bunny. They filled the tub with blankets and pillows and settled in for the night as in their innocent little minds, the Easter Bunny would never suspect they would be sleeping there.

The plan was to jump up when they heard him come in, flash their flashlights at him and catch the elusive chocolate maker in the act. When you think about it, it was a sweet and brilliant plan but alas, they never did catch the Easter Bunny as he outsmarted them by laying multiple trails of small eggs, all of which led the boys back to the bathroom where the larger eggs were hidden right under their noses. The look of amazement on their faces when they found the larger eggs less than 4 feet from where they were sleeping was priceless.

Well, the kiddies are no longer ‘kiddies’ but young teens and though they still love chocolate, the Easter egg hunt days are over. It’s always a little nostalgic for me to think that the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny and even Santa will no longer visit our home. Instead, we’re planning on future careers, what universities they will apply to and whether or not they will live on campus or not.  Those magical days of childhood sure fly by.

    The childhood innocence does pass by far too fast. All of my children all full grown, but we still have an Easter egg hunt every year. Although, instead of chocolate eggs they are plastic eggs filled with money, shooters, or other adult goodies.

    What a great Easter basket! I know a lot of people who would like this basket.
    When I was little the Easter Bunny visited our house one year and hid the eggs we had colored. However, my dad forgot where the Easter Bunny said he hid the 12th egg. About 4 days later or so there was a horrible smell in our living room. Guess what we found? The next year he made sure he wrote down where the Easter Bunny hid all the eggs. We had a good laugh over it when we got lots older.
    I miss not believing in the Easter Bunny or Santa anymore. Those were fun times but like your kids who are younger then I am now, we all grew up. Sometimes I wish we could be kids a lot longer.
