This is a blog for my son. He has a rare auto immune disease that causes his body to attack food like it would a virus making it impossible for him to eat most any foods with out getting very very sick. This is a record of our ups and downs, doctor visits and procedures. Our trial and error life of finding out what foods are safe for our son to eat and eliminating the ones that are not from his life.

Food Free Easter

I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend! I know we did!
The holidays are always a bit tricky for us since they are ALL centered around FOOD! 
(Why is that??)
So, we just have to get creative.
There are lots of ideas on Pinterest for food free Easter baskets if you aren't feeling too creative. 
I want to share what we did for John this year. 

look at those adorable peeps!!

My cousin has a friend who makes these ADORABLE felt foods. You can check her out here : 
As soon as I saw her Easter goodies, I knew I had to have some for John's Easter basket.

some Easter cookies

I loved the idea of John getting to have some traditional Easter goodies in a safe way.
What Easter basket is complete with out a chocolate bunny??

he even comes with his own "white chocolate carrot"

We also had books, a mini slinky, some neat triangle crayons, and a monster truck in his basket.
yes, that is Darth Vader with bunny ears :)

checking out his chocolate bunny

We even got some custom "Cars 2" Easter eggs.

trying to figure out the "swinky"

Once you start thinking outside the traditional box you'll find there are LOTS of fun things you can put in an Easter basket and hide inside plastic eggs that have nothing to do with food. 
Thanks for reading and we hope you all had a fun and SAFE holiday weekend!
