Easter Basket Reveal & #xvsdailylife2014 Week 15

When I saw that Sarah @ Our Journey was doing a Easter Basket link up I couldn't resist!
By the way if you haven't checked out her blog, do so today.
She already has a handsome little guy, and will be adding a beautiful daughter to the mix this summer :)

As I was getting this post ready I saw Darci @ The Good Life Blog was also hosting a Easter Basket link up and decided to join the fun there as well :)

So this year will be different than others.
The first year X was only about 4 months old so his basket just had a little bit of candy (for Mic & I) and some plastic eggs.
His Grandma Roberts got him a big chick :)
Don't mind the 1980's counter tops. Thankfully, we have replaced them :)

The next year mom & dad the Easter Bunny did a little better :)
X received some fun books, summer clothes, new pj's, and a new Pottery Barn chair :)

This year mommy the Easter Bunny is going a bit overboard.
Since X was sick for his birthday in December we never really got to celebrate or do anything fun for him.
This mommy felt bad :(
So this year he is getting the traditional chocolate Easter Bunny,
a few of the Chuggington trains to add to his collection (found them on clearance at Ollie's), a few pairs of shorts for summer 
(I can't resist camo these days!), and a hat and flip-flops.

FYI: If you live anywhere around the Cleveland area you MUST go to Malley's Chocolates!

Now the kicker is they won't be placed in a basket or chair this year.
They will be in his new Little Tikes Jump n' Slide!
I found it on a great sale at Kmart and they even offered free shipping! I saved almost $100 on this thing!
I can't wait to see X's face on Easter morning :)

What are you or the Easter Bunny giving your kiddos this year?
