It was about a month ago that I made the first announcement about "assisting the Easter Bunny" again this year. Each week after that someone would hand me a check or cash and members would bring in bags of Easter grass, plastic eggs, baskets, chocolates, etc. I had fun shopping for even more goodies with the cash and then we assembled it all on Sunday, April 10th. I had some help from some of the youth members and their mom's and here's what it looked like as we filled the baskets..................
And here's Maddy filing the baskets with Easter grass. You should have seen the floor when we were finished. LOL! And that Easter grass clings to everything! In the photo below, Kayla, is adding lots of candies to each basket. There were all sorts of goodies from chocolate bunnies and boxes of colors, chalk, bubbles, card games, and little stuffed Easter toys that we added to the baskets.
And when all the baskets were filled, we put each one in a plastic bag and added a bow (and we snipped off the top of the bag to make it look prettier).
In just a little over an hour, with the help of these newly certified Easter Bunny Assistants, we filled 52 Easter Baskets! The helpers are .....from left to right........Tammy and daughter, Kayla, Trent, and Maddy and her mom, Monica.
There was just one more job to do........carry them all out to my car..........
Today is Good Friday and I remember that when I was a kid, local businesses closed on Friday afternoons in observance of church services. That seems such a long time ago. I think I am getting old when I think how long ago that was. LOL! Wishing those of you that observe Easter a blessed day on Sunday. We don't have any plans to travel but our grandson is coming to spend the weekend. I like that. :-) Later this evening, I'll add another post of photos (I have permission to post them) of some of the quilts at the Deep Valley Quilters Show in Mankato last weekend. They were lovely, so stop by on Saturday when you need a break and take a peek at the quilts. And next week.........fun, fun, fun with my GO! Baby and a little giveaway of some extra DayTreat goodies! And wait til you see the cute pincushion I made from the little candy dish that I placed on everyone's mug rug that day. So easy, so I will share how you can make one, too. :-)
Have a great day!
