Thursday Thirteen


Thirteen Suprises Received In My Easter Basket Throughout The Years

1. A silver cross necklace when I was 8 years old. I still have it!

2. A giant stuffed bunny rabbit that was like 4 foot tall.

3. A new Bible when I was around 10. It was a real grown up Bible~it didn't have any pictures!

4. A beautifully decorated pink egg made of sugar with the middle cut out that had a tiny Easter basket on the inside. It was too pretty to eat.

5. Peeps. Yes, these were a suprise because I hate them!

6. A really awesome shorts and top outfit.

7. A solid white chocolate bunny from Russell Stovers. That's when I discovered that white chocolate made me sick!

8. A plastic bunny with a fluffy tail from Avon that contained Sweet Honesty powder. I still have this too!

9. The complete set of Little House books. Yep, still got 'em!

10. A coupon to the movies good for me and a friend plus popcorn, drinks and a candy bar! I chose my friend Mary Lou and we saw The Apple Dumpling Gang!

11. A red button with Snoopy on it looking adorable. I wore in on my suspenders that were so popular way back when. Sadly, I still have both!

12. A half dozen Marathon candy bars! They were my absolute favorite back in high school.

13. And last, but certainly not least because it was a gift that lasted a year....a subscription to Tiger Beat magazine! My walls were plastered with all the Donny posters!

What a precious memory. What I learned about peeps if there is someone you dont like,lick the peep and put it on someones car and when it slides down, it takes the paint..I never did that but learned about it in college!

I loved your list

You do have some wonderful memories.
White chocolate makes me sick too.

Here's my life verse:
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13
All I need to know is Jesus loves me, and because he loves me I love my family, my friends or someone in need of love.

Happy Thursday, Amy!

I can't believe you remember all of those things. I couldn't even tell you what was in one of my baskets, besides candy, of course!

Take care!

What a great trip down memory lane. Yep, I was a Donny Osmond fan too. I didn't have a poster of him, but I did have one of Sylvester Stallone. :o)

My grandma was always the one that got us our Easter baskets. My parents got us our outfits, Easter bonnet, white gloves, white shoes and all. Ah.... the memories.

Great list! Oh, sorry but ah... I love peeps. :o)

Hope you have a blessed Thursday!

what great memories throughout the years! I had to buy Tiger Beat all the time, but my walls were plastered (you couldn't see one empty space!) with Kirk Cameron!

I really do not like Peeps at all! They are cute little things, but disgusting!

I would have LOVED a subscription to Tiger Beat. What a great idea to do a magazine subscription. I'll have to keep that in mind for future baskets.
