The 14 year old had no desire to color eggs this year. (yea. No mess in the kitchen. No colored fingers when we open the shells.) I boiled some anyway yesterday so that we could have the traditional Saturday hot hard boiled egg breakfast.
Therefore, today I didn't hide any eggs. But I did make up a basket and hid it. She's been awake almost an hour and still has no urge to vacate her room and hunt for the basket. Such a change from years ago when she couldn't wait to do all those things. Today, while she's off at a friend's house participating in their Easter Egg hunt, I'll turn the hard boiled eggs into traditional deviled eggs. I know she loves those.
Oooooo. Found another basket (online). Pretty:
I did hide a basket with Reese's Cups Easter eggs -- her favorite candy. (not pictured above)
She complained during the whole the time she looked for it saying, "You're really getting a kick out of this, aren't you?"
Yes, I laughed to myself every time she passed the basket without seeing it. I was a meanie and gave her no hints. Finally she collapsed in the living room chair, looking right at it. Even so, it took her a moment to actually see it on the bookshelves.
