Ella's Easter Basket

Just this morning, I saw a mom post on Facebook about how out of control Easter baskets have gotten. I completely agree! I really tried to keep things simple with Ella this year and picked up 90% of this stuff at consignment sales. Not including the swimsuit (which I got on a day when Ruffle Butts was doing free monogramming!), I think I spent less than $20 on all of this.

{So, we cannot find Ella's 2 pairs of sunglasses from last year and it has been killing me! She asks me everyday "Where sungasses go Mommy?" and I cannot stand that we have yet to find them!} 
($7 at a consignment sale...and it came with ALL of the Sesame Street characters, not just Count and Elmo! Score!)

And of course, she will also be getting some candy (that Trav and I will probably eat most of) and a big chocolate Easter bunny! 

Linking up with these ladies!


  1. It's definitely easy to go crazy with fun things for your kids. I don't think Aria got anything for her first Easter...but her second my gosh she got a table full mainly from family haha. Awesome finds though!

  2. Ooh, I love that stacking toy and that Thomas doodle pad! Thanks for linking up :)

  3. The swimsuit is adorable!
    We have that Stack and Sort board for my toddler and he plays with it all the time!

  4. That stacking toy is awesome. We have something similar by Melissa and Doug, but it uses different shapes on 3 pegs. It's awesome and something I'll keep for a long long time. The swimsuit is adorable. I went with a summer & swimsuit theme, which I tend to do every year. I like to get the kids things they need and will use. I agree that Easter baskets have gotten out of control. I tried so hard to not do a ton this year and am so happy with how they turned out. Love all you chose for Ella!

  5. Im with you, you can get great items and not break the bank! The Dollar Spot was so good to me this year. You had me at Melissa and Doug, their products are the best! Thanks for linking up with us!
