For the Kids!

Every year Jim and I hold an Easter egg hunt for our adult children and their spouses who live here in town. We take plastic eggs, fill them with money, then hide the eggs out front. The main rule however is this... you are only allowed to find ONE egg. (For our children who live out of town, we want you to know that we are going to be placing even larger amounts of money in bigger eggs with each year that passes because we want to honor your siblings who have been faithful to stay here in town with us... instead of moving away.) Back to the hunt... Jim and I take great joy in watching our children hunt for these eggs. Watching them try to cheat is especially fun. This year some of them actually held their eggs up to the light to see if they could tell just how much money was hidden inside their egg.. Once all of the eggs are found, we take the time to allow the kids to make any exchanges if they want, but no one was willing to give up their egg this year. Hmmmm.

It was pretty obvious who found the egg with the most money. See if you can tell. ;-)

Michael and Chris were looking everywhere!!

The girls did pretty well... except I did have to narrow it down for a couple of them... I won't say who.

John was the last one to find his egg... I had to flat out tell him where it was!!

Looking at the picture.. guess who found the best egg?
