The best thing I remember getting in my Easter Basket was this pad with a special marker that when you rubbed it on the paper, things appeared like magic! I was easily entertained & this to me was total magic!!

I asked the Easter Bunny for a Ken doll for my Barbie. I got a 9″ Captain Kirk. Best gift because where his eyes met with an 11″ Barbie is a good story.

A live, baby chick was the best thing I ever received in my Easter basket. The Easter Bunny frequently included live chicks and lop-eared bunnies in our baskets that went on to live happy, long lives. I even got a baby lamb one year.

A floppy brim Easter hat that I’d been asking my mother for. Actually , she used the hat as the the basket and filled it with candy. Wore it to church that morning. Good memories.

My best memory is when we woke up at my grandmother’s in Barre, Vermont on Easter morning. My sister opened the door to see the snow and in the snow we saw bunny tracks heading to and from the door. They bunny had left behind eggs for my brother, sister and I to find all over the house. 🙂
