Though we are naturally decaffeinated, we've got plenty of spunk (some good, some bad!).

What it looks like: Emmy finding an egg. Reality: Emmy finding an egg.
What it looks like: a Maxwell Easter-egg hunt. Reality: a very simple and "thrown-together-at-the-last-minute" Maxwell Easter-egg hunt.
What it looks like: Jonas and an armful of eggs. Reality: Jonas and an armful of eggs.
What it looks like: a happy Emmy finding another egg. Reality: 2 minutes later Emmy was crying because she only found two eggs.
What it looks like: Jonas and everyone helping Lucy get an egg in the tree. Reality: Everyone Loves Lucy.
What it looks like: 4 nice and well-behaved children checking out their spoils of the hunt. Reality: a lot of bickering over "hey that's my egg," i.e., "I don't care if you found that egg, that was one that I had decorated!" It was sort of spoiled by a 9-year old and then more spoiled by said 9-year old's mother who lectured the kids and went off on a few other things . . .
P.S. We did this early since we are going to be driving on Easter-Saturday and Sunday. We are going on our first ever not-visiting-family vacation. I LOVE visiting family, but I am excited to be going a real vacation, too.
