april 5Easter!

But without candy.

No candy.

I want to repeat that again.

No candy.

No way I would have survived Easter without candy.

Chocolate bunnies.
Chocolate eggs.
Jelly beans.
Peeps! Peeps! Peeps!

So it’s really odd for me to try to create an Easter basket that doesn’t include candy, but Simon isn’t into candy. Sometimes he likes Tootsie Roll Pops, until they get to the Tootsie Roll part. Then he throws them away.

But he loved his basket. It had fun squishy toys (a bunny and a caterpillar), eggs with erasers and stickers in them, pencils, mini Thomas the Tank Engine toys, and a set of Easter Matchbox cars.

And he loved searching for eggs on the back porch – the rain we’ve been having on and off for three days made the lawn a little less than hospitable for an egg hunt, especially when the egg hunter hates it when his shoes or feet get wet and/or get any grass stuck on them.

And he loved dinner out at Logan’s with some friends.

So, all in all, a great Easter for him. But no candy.

No candy!!
