I will post pictures on Monday with what the Easter Bunny does to our house in the morning. It's pretty funny, and the kids enjoy it more than the actual candy I think.

very nice! I got the free baskets and grass from CVS, and saved up CVS goodies and bought some stuff with our extrabucks that were going to expire. So hubby will get beef jerky, tic tacs and candy, DD (2yo) will get socks, baseball caps, stickers, books (thrift store but she doesn't know the difference) and candy. i made one for me too. I wish i had the time to decorate the house!
