But, they did!
My oldest daughter had a great idea, though, as we discussed how we would do the hunt. They all agreed that they had more than enough candy, so the idea was to get a puzzle that was Easter themed and hide the pieces inside the eggs.
I started by looking for a puzzle that was Easter themed. All I could find was one with a sunrise, to represent the rising from the tomb. I got a 500 piece puzzle.
I got each child a small Easter basket with candy they had requested and hid tin-roil-wrapped eggs for them to find and redeem for the baskets.
it was a great idea, but we did not finish the puzzle. I think next year, I'll get fewer pieces.
After the puzzle, we did the Resurrection Eggs that tell the story of the resurrection.
Of course, we had started the day off earlier by going to church, this year with grandparents, and taking our traditional pictures by the tree.
And, we watched the Veggie Tales Easter Carol.
