Happy Easter Akesha!

Every year Greg's company always hands out Easter basket for kids, and of course Akesha got one. This is her 3rd Easter basket that came from them since she was born. She was delighted when her papa came home from work and gave her this big Easter basket. Apparently she can't wait to open it.

She was forced to smile because she can't wait to open the basket.
Do you know that it has been estimated that around 90% of children in the US receive some form of gift-filled Easter basket during the holiday season? It's worth noting that this estimate comes from the National Confectioners Association (NCA) whose members sell many of the candy treats and chocolate eggs. A recent NCA survey also discovered that chocolate bunnies are the most popular Easter basket item - some 90 million are sold every year. Jelly beans come second with a staggering 16 billion jelly beans sold annually.

With increasing awareness of health issues, some parents are reducing the amount of sugar treats and instead adding non-edible gifts and toys as basket stuffers.

cutie akesha!! hehheehe..

i admire you ganda for being firm in showing akesha ur the boss of the house.. naku ako girl i cant do that.. am praying na sana i can overcome being so nice to yena tapos she grows super spoiled. naku ayoko un mangyari.

at this time am thankful to yobib kasi siya tlga diciplinarian eh.. pag umiyak na yena pagkatapos sawayin naku nalulusaw na ko sa awa :(

i hope i can change.. tips naman jan! :)
