I'm really proud of the way we handled Easter this year. Big emphasis on the Bible side of it (I found a pretty neat book at the library during that check out 50 books while we remodel thing - I'll have to look up the info on that), we explained Holy Week each day and tried to tie in what had happened and what was coming. Then on Easter on the (2 hours - each way) drive to/from church, they watched the VeggieTales Easter Carol over and over again - so they got the tie of the plastic eggs and candy and stuff are fun... but that's not what makes Easter. We did an egg hunt at home, too, but I haven't uploaded those photos yet. Here are their baskets. Combined with other savings deals and coupons and gift cards at Walgreens, Joann and Rite Aid, I spent under $10 (I think it was actually closer to between $6-8) for both of their baskets combined... including their own baskets this year. I know that baskets aren't necessary at all, but they were so thankful for each and every thing in there that it made me smile =)
