Despite the fact that the house is now a complete mess and the fact that I'm still tired, it was a nice vacation. After a week off though, I've been thinking that I ought to start things up here again. So, I'll start where I left off with our Easter egg hunt.
Just a typical egg hunt:
|He found the blue egg!|
|Counting her eggs.|
|Adding another egg to her basket. Buddy is pleased with the eggs he found.|
|Searching for the last elusive egg. I was a little bit tricky on a few of them.|
He expressed the hope that our Easter egg hunt would be like the one in the book. While, I had no plans to visit a chocolate factory during our egg hunt or any of the other fantastic things that occurred in the book, I did think it would be fun to hide letters in some of the eggs so Buddy could unscramble them and spell "Happy Easter." It turned out really well. Buddy was thrilled and Jellybean was happy to find that the eggs that she had thought were empty, actually had letters hiding in them.
|Opening the eggs, secret message unscrambled, money, jellybeans, anything better?|

Perhaps I'll think up a new secret message next year and hide some more letters. It was a nice way to cut down on the candy.
|Though, it seems that Jellybean was all about the candy.|
