We had such a great time hunting for eggs on Easter Morning. Ben was good big brother and shared most of the eggs he found with his sister. Here, he is stuffing a yellow Peep into his mouth. One candy-filled plastic egg had been discovered by ants, and Ben picked it up saying, "This one is for the ants!" There were about 30 ants swarming on the outside of the egg. Brian said that when he cracked it open, there were at least another 60 ants feasting on the jelly beans inside. YUK!!!!!
Once they found their baskets in the living room, they didn't even care to hunt for anymore eggs. They just wanted to check out all their loot!
They survived the 90+ minute Mass at 9:30am, but by the time we went outside of church for the egg hunt, they were both in tears. Neither of them wanted to participate. Maggie, did, however, find one "patterned egg" which awarded her the lovely stuffed duck she is holding in these pictures.
