So I might have gone a little overboard...

This year is the first year we're putting some effort into Easter baskets for the girls. And? I think I may have gone a little overboard.

We had an Easter egg hunt at my parents' last year but neglected to do a basket (I think; I honestly can't remember), and when Carina was teeny we did a small basket with chocolate {that I ate}.

In my crazy excitement {and wanting to do something fun after spending all weekend laid out with Mastitis} I set up the baskets just a bit way too early and whoa, I didn't realize just how many Disney Princess things I got for them. We'll pick up a couple rosaries and maybe some M&M's for Carina before we head down to Philly to be with Mike's family for Easter.

Easter baskets!
Aurelia's basket (below): Nala footie pajamas, little stuffed duckie/chickie?, Jasmine doll, teether, and princess tote bag (behind everything).

For Aurelia
And Carina's basket: Jasmine nightgown, little stuffed bunny, Merida doll, Fancy Nancy book, and Sofia the First tote bag (behind everything).

For Carina
Okay, yeah. I went overboard. Since neither of the girls has on occasion for which we'll buy them gifts for at least another 6 Months (Aurelia's birthday), I guess I'm using this as an excuse to spoil them with a few presents.

And for us? Well, we don't give ourselves Easter baskets but we do usually get a special treat or two to enjoy. Lately, I've been craving chocolate so I was quite excited to receive the Mrs. Fields® Nibblers® & Bites Basket from

Nibblers® & Bites Basket
The Nibblers and Brownie Bites were amazing -- the Butterscotch Blondie was my favorite. They were almost addicting. We had planned to save them for Easter, but they were gone in just a couple days. Oops. So yeah, we ate all this: 72 Assorted Nibblers® Bite Sized Cookies including Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chip, Cinnamon Sugar, and White Chocolate Macadamia Nuts & 36 Assorted Brownie Bites.

I also love the wicker basket they all came might recognize it as Aurelia's Easter basket above. But to be honest, I was a little disappointed. While there were as many Nibblers and Bites as stated in the product description, the presentation was a bit lacking. It wasn't nearly as impressive as the photo at right. Also, I wish there had been more of both sweets. Maybe then they would have made it to Easter ;)  Maybe.

Do you do Easter baskets for your kids? If so, what do you put in them?
