If you’re anything like me, you are just putting Easter baskets together for your kiddos. If you do that sort of thing, that is. Honestly? This basket – see it over there – is the very first one I’ve ever put together for any one of my kiddos. Shhh.
I think it’s sorta cute, if I do say so myself, and I put it all together for about $20 at Walmart! They really do have some great stuff for the stuffing of those baskets. Here’s a cost breakdown for this one::
· Easter Basket and Grass $3.33
· Plastic Little People Easter Egg $5.00
· Plush Puppy, er… Bunny $3.00
· Rubber Duckie $1.00
· The Story of Easter board book $6.27
Now, if you noticed there wasn’t any candy in that basket, do not be alarmed – I’m not sick! Remember, the basket is for Timmy. BUT, my older kiddos and I have been noshing on plenty of Easter candy, thanks to our friends at Wonka! Here are some of the goodies we’ve had a chance to try and would totally recommend::
· DoubleYummy Gummies
· Wonka Exceptionals Chocolate Waterfall Eggs
· Wonka Exceptionals Scrumptious Chocolate Eggs
· SweeTARTS Jelly Beans
· And, of course, all of our favorites like SweeTARTS, Gobstoppers, Spree and Bottlecaps in little packets perfect for filling plastic eggs.
Walmart is a great place to purchase Wonka’s sweet treats. But, then again, you already knew that, right?

I have been compensated by Walmart for my time and efforts to create this post. I did also receive samples of the Wonka goodies mentioned above, from my friends at Nestle. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Herod couldn’t kill Him….
Death couldn’t handle Him, and the grave couldn’t hold Him.

MY KING IS ALIVE AND LIVING TODAY!!
Inspired by Marie’s lollipop flowers, I decided to make each of our closest neighbors a special mini Spring cake with flowers of our own.
The kids and I mixed up two different cake mixes and poured them into five mini loaf pans and our Wilton UltraGold square pan.
While our cakes were baking, we created our flowers using toothpicks, marshmallow bunnies, gumdrops, Reese’s mini Peanut Butter Cups and Hershey’s Kisses.
Once our cakes were completely cooled, we frosted them with green frosting, sprinkled the top of each with green-colored coconut flakes, and began planting!
Assembling our garden was the most fun part! I created a garden on top of the biggest cake, while some of my kiddos created a smaller one. We added Runts Freckled Eggs, for that finishing touch, and we were ready to deliver our sweet Spring gardens.
They were incredibly easy to create and a whole lot of fun. Besides, they are super cute, if I do say so myself!
