Easter Egg Hunt, the First

Easter Egg Hunt, the First

April 11, 2012

It was brutal!

I shouted, “May the odds be ever in your favor!” Which just drew confused looks from my two youngest since they haven’t read the books or seen the movie.


My sweet, sweet daughter gave her entire bag of found eggs to a little girl who was sobbing, having arrived moments too late to the hunt. I was so proud of her. I told her that when we went back home I would give her some candy since she had been so generous.

I went into my closet, where the Easter candy stash had been hiding, and brought her out some jellybeans, a cadbury egg, some peanut butter cups… she looked at it all and said, “Is this candy that you were just going to put in my Easter basket tomorrow?”

“Of course not, “I assured her,”This is what I was going to put in your brothers’ Easter baskets.”
