The hunt for eggs around our house (too cold for anything outdoors) took all of 2.5 minutes. I know this because I video taped it--and it took 2.5 minutes. She was very happy about it though.
The rest of the family had decorated eggs while my family visited back in late February so Caroline was forced to do one that day. I just gave her a wooden egg and poured some blue paint on her hand and some right on the egg. She was only mildly interested.
Maggie was allowed to pick a box of sugared cereal for the big day. We picked out Lucky Charms almost a week before. Every single day she asked to open it early. We held out. That's her holding a marshmallow from her bowl. She ate three bites, max.

Maggie bounced around the yard and pretended to plant seeds all over.

It's also a battle I've chosen not to fight when it comes to wearing these get-ups in public. So if you see us wandering around town looking like the above pic, please know this is not how I wanted her to dress!

We shopped, ate, stayed up much too late laughing and talking. When the kids were awake, general craziness ensued.
Does it look like Maggie had a good time with Elba?? You bet. One morning she woke up and started her morning routine before stopping dead in her tracks to exclaim, "WHERE is Ellen?". I assured her Ellen was still her and would wake up soon enough. Poor Ellen was subjected to our super early morning routine. We really did try to keep the noise down.
Ellen outfitted Caroline with some keys and a purse to run some errands on her toy car thingy.
