The chocolate basket

I would like to wish all my followers (and anyone else who reads my posts) a Blessed Easter, and I am so thankful that my Lord and Saviour rose from the dead and defeated Satan in one fell swoop!

My 5 grandchildren are still young - some not even talking yet (3 months - 10 years), yet the 3 eldest (5, 7, 10) fully understand the significance of Easter and how our Lord paid a price yet came out victorious. However, they are still kids - and so many kids love eating chocolate at Easter time - often the only time they are ever allowed to gorge on the yummy stuff! I bought the 3 eldest one chocolate bunny each (I could not find decent egg shaped chocolates that weren't coated in sugar!), and put them into this little basket that I made from a folded piece of 12"x12" cardstock, and then decorated it. The bunnies are 10cm in height, and I'm amazed this little bag held all 3 without breaking!
Don't berate me for buying chocolate bunnies for the kids - as I said, my grandkids know the significance of Easter. I am a gran after all, and love spoiling them. I too was a kid many moons ago, and can remember how excited my sister and I were, that eventhough my parents were battling financially, they still treated us to some chocolate at Easter time.
