Leila snuck two mini chocolate eggs this morning while we were distracted by Ella's more serious hunting. Ella didn't have chocolate until she was about 2 1/2, Leila is half that age and managed to down two. It's now almost 6pm and she has slept only half an hour all day - next time I think we'll wrestle it from her.
The hunt, which I LOVE preparing, is over quickly - our big girl is too clever, I think next year I'll have to over rather than under restimate her intelligence. We made clues (left by the Easter bunny) and with each clue was a few pieces of a homemade jigsaw. Once all the clues were collected and she had all the jigsaw pieces she put it together to lead her to hers and her sister's Easter surprise. I just love it, love the anticipation of Ella and knowing, or more hoping, that these memories will stay with her forever in the same way my parents made similar memories for me.
