Does anyone still want to see Easter photos? You? oh, you too?
Only Xander loves the hard-boiled eggs.
After dinner we had the inside hunt where the real treasures are found. Do you have a fought-over candy at your house? Ours is Lindt hazelnut chocolate carrots. They’re expensive so I only buy 12. Ben managed to secure 10. I’m not a complete communist– I didn’t make him give them to the others– he was forced to trade.
The moment Mary secured her fair share she pulled out the piano bench and began setting up shop to sell her loot. Her prices were extremely generous: 1 jellybean buys you anything.
Knowing that Mary despises jellybeans and wouldn’t even pick them up in the candy hunt I warned her, “All your treats will be gone before you know it.”
“That’s OK,” she sassed, “I was already annoyed with all that sugar.”
Ever the loyal servant, Gabe became her first employee and contributed his wares. Hans and Xander enjoyed being customers so much that they continued refilling her shelves, eventually moved the store down to basement and played “Mary’s Store” for the next FIVE hours.
I have no idea where all the candy ended up. Probably stashed under Hansie’s bed.
