We are forgoing the whole Easter Bunny concept for Elise, but will still give her an Easter basket full of fun items. It has always been our first priority to show the true reason for the season, while still incorporating the imaginative wonder. Santa made an appearance, but the Easter bunny, at least for now will not. Why not the bunny? Well, it is not because we think it will take away from the true reason. It is because she is freaked out over the idea of a bunny coming to her house and leaving a basket full of gifts! Seriously! I made mention of the illusive Easter Bunny and she looked me straight in the eyes and said, "NO BUNNY! NEVER!". Never is her absolute word she loves to use to show she means business! So, mommy and daddy will be delivering her Easter basket. Here are a few highlights from Elise's basket.
