Children on a Hunt in MY YARD April 13, 2010

My husband started a tradition of having an annual Easter Egg Hunt at our house. Since we don’t have little kids, it’s our way to still see the joy of children’s faces hunting for eggs, candy, and prizes along the way! We invite family, neighbors, friends, friends of friends, and anyone else who wants to join.





Hubby prepares the front yard, making sure everything is perfect. He then scatters the candy, bubbles, gum, plastic eggs filled with more candy and pennies, and this year we added Hershey’s pre-packed eggs. We have little stuffed animals or toys for the babies (cause they need something too).

He lines them up- Get Ready, Get Set, GO!!!!!



Off they go, running, grabbing, and scooping up their goodies. The little ones are best to watch because they’re very particular of what goes into their basket. One little girl did NOT want the plastic eggs but was going for the candy only. When mom helped her, she simply took the eggs out of her basket and threw them back on the ground. Another little boy woo hoo’d for every piece of candy he picked up and another needed to show mom each piece she found.





We were asked Why we do this. When you have this cute little person saying thank you, your welcome, thank you– 100 times because she was so excited….That’s Why!


Hope you enjoy the pictures of our visitors for the day!

Hershey’s Donates Baskets to the Domestic Violence Shelter March 19, 2010

Hershey’s doesn’t just have great chocolate, they also give back with BIG hearts.


I received a gift card from Hershey to create  Easter baskets that I could donate to whoever I chose. I decided the children at the local Battered Women’s  Shelter were more than deserving! So off I went to Walmart and I filled my cart with hershey’s candy that is only sold at Walmarts and not at other retail locations.





I called the shelter and found out there were four       children, so i put together four baskets and of course included other goodies for them like crazy straws, jumpropes, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, and coloring books.


The best part is that the children will be told that this was given to them from Hershey’s! I think Hershey’s just made four children very happy this Easter!   

I had a few helpers and I think we created wonderful Easter baskets!

Now don’t YOU want to HELP???????

Keep reading and see how you and Hershey’s can make a difference this Easter!
