I would always do big baskets for my Rugrats each year. I couldn't resist putting my daughter inside her basket for a photo.
She was so much more precious than any stuffed rabbit I could have ever found!
So now I share this.
My little sister and I spending Easter at my Aunts house.
Doesn't she look so happy and sweet?
You would never guess that about 2 seconds after this photo was taken her basket fell over and the contents spilled out.
She screamed and cried as if it was all unwrapped and attacked by ants.
Being the nice big sister I
And peace was restored in the land.
Until I put on my uncle's (way to big for me) flip flops and went into a field full of sticker patches.
I screamed and cried as if my feet were full of stickers......oh wait....they were......so YA, I screamed and cried like that......
Ok, maybe I screamed and cried as if knives were slicing my feet.
Then my Uncle came out and got me and carried me back to the house.
And then peace was restored in the land.
As my Rugrats get older I'm trying to think of some fun new things to do with them. Create some great memories for them.
Besides spilling their baskets and standing in a field of stickers.
Not that those are my only Easter memories.... They're not......
I can't think of anything else right now, but the memories are there.
Locked away underneath the painful memories of the ants and knives. I mean spilled candy and stickers.
The girls love to bake and I found a couple things I just HAVE to have.
I found these at Williams-Sonoma. Aren't they adorable? Now if we can just get ours to turn out that well!
My stuff never looks like the photo on the box.
But then I saw this.............
LOVE these! Aren't they adorable?
I'm not sure if they look so good because I'm starving right now or if they just really look that good...... I'll get back with you on that one....
And if anyone knows what Richard Simmons"deal a meal" cards I use to be able to eat about a dozen of these please let me know.
I just really want to do something extra special with the kids this year.
Ok, I just really want an excuse to work with sugar and flour.
weigh way, the weight loss plan is still going strong.
Had to fight the urge to buy a
KING SIZE bite size Snickers bar today but I did it.
I fought the urge that is.
I did NOT buy the snickers bar.
My friend bought it for me.
Sadly I'm kidding. sniff, sniff
But tomorrow when I hop on the scale for my weekly weigh in I will be sooooooo glad I didn't eat the snickers bar.
Tonight.......not so much.
