It Was a Double CD Set

For Easter morning, G. insisted on making a treasure hunt for A. He hid clues in plastic eggs, with each clue leading to the next, and the final one leading to the baskets. What's more, the clues had to rhyme. So we're sitting on the floor the night before, filling baskets and looking for words that rhyme with "oven."

A. loved it, except he threw us a curve by taking one of the clues and telling us, "Now I read the clue and you try to find it." He can't read, but he pretends he can, and so he made up a clue, non-rhyming, that led to G.'s office, where there was no egg. But with a little sleight-of-hand, G. dropped another egg in his office, slipped the original clue out, read it out loud and the hunt continued. Phew.

We were bad Christians, though. We knew we'd be up early, so we'd planned on attending 7:30 a.m. mass. But after the 6:00a.m hunt, we looked at each other and said, "Nuh-uh." I went back to bed, then got up and relieved G., who slept for another three hours. We did watch "The Story of Jesus for Children" on DVD and listened to the Bible songs on their new CD, so hopefully God will forgive us.
