It’s crazy that this year I put together TWO Easter baskets for my kids. It has been so fun having a boy and girl and finding things that really suit their personalities (mostly Henry’s since Evelyn is only 12 weeks). Henry has been using my Easter basket from back when I grew up and I just bought Evelyn’s at Target. Most of their goodies were also found at my local Target (dollar hot spot, baby!) They always hit the nail on the head when it comes to holidays and their selection for kids. I got a bunch of cute little fillers (bubbles, a jump rope, rubber duckies, rattles) and then a few bigger items too.
We will be hosting Easter brunch with my family and also having an Easter egg hunt in the backyard for Henry. I filled a ton of eggs with small toys and candy that I got at Party City. The eggs are from Target and Oriental Trading Company. This year Henry is definitely old enough to understand an egg hunt, the hard part will be to see if he actually cares to do it. I’m looking forward to hiding all the eggs in the backyard now that my husband has done a lot of work to clear it out.
As for brother and sister styles, I went with simple whites so they would easily match (and get dirty in .5 seconds). Pairing accessories to their clothes has always been my favorite and this holiday is no different. I am torn between two adorable bows for Evelyn, so she might just have to alternate through out the day 🙂 The kids Easter outfits have been in their closets since before I knew I wanted to use them for Easter. My husband will breath a sigh of relief on that one.
Yesterday Henry and I dyed and decorated some Easter eggs (but let’s be honest, he just painted craft paper and I did all the decorating). It was a lot of fun though and I will definitely be putting a few in the baskets and in the back yard for the hunt.
We have a pretty busy weekend ahead of us with a friends dinner tonight, a play group egg hunt and family. Next week is also my last week on maternity leave (tear) so I will be soaking up baby snuggles for as long as I can before I head back to work. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!
