it was awesome. i was ecstatic. they took a picture of me receiving the basket and posted it on their facebook fan page at which i have posted below. the ladies were awfully nice and sweet to me and as i left, i swear i wanted to kiss them all on the mouth. thank you, thank you!!lastly, these two things that were inside the easter baskets were the girls' favorites: the chocolate milk straws and the melissa & doug art sheets which already had the paint on the paper, all you need is a paintbrush and water. it is so much easier with less mess...the easter bunny will definitely be buying a pack for their easter baskets.
