An Easter Basket for the Kids


 I'm quite sure that none of the after school kids will be getting Easter Baskets at home.  I thought it would be fun to make them one large basket to share.  This basket is huge! It's 2 feet wide.

 I loaded it full of all sorts of Easter treats.

I made a smaller one for the other smaller group.  They even got bags of Peeps Oreos. The Blog Tech said the kid's eyes popped out of their heads when they saw the baskets.  I also sent them big meat and cheese platters and homemade rolls so they had something solid to balance out all of the sugar!
I spent most of the rest of yesterday working outside.  It was a perfect Spring day.
 I re-potted some herbs .

 I even cut the grass for the first time this season.



 I came up with an idea for my small greenhouse which I will work on after Easter.  I'll post it when I do it.

 I moved pots all day. Two of these are blueberries and one is an olive tree.

 My sink isn't open yet but I did start to arrange the area around it.

And I moved my Bay trees outside.  I'm pretty sure our freezing nights are done. Slowly but surely things are coming together.

What an Easter basket. There will be lots of joy for some kids who do not have our abundance. I am overcome with emotion seeing your generosity and dedication. Because of that your heart will be full of blessings and peace. I'm making the annual Easter basket to take for blessing on Holy Saturday. I have find your link.
Happy Easter

That is one big basket :-)
We got easter treats from the factory owner at work too :-)

I wanted to fill pots this weekend too but the weather won't be inviting I'm afraid, both big sites says cold but at least we won't get any snow :-)

Have a great day!

In so many ways those children have a difficult path, its very kind of you and your family to make that path a bit less bumpy!
