The Great Egg Hunt

I wish that I had a video of the egg hunt in my house yesterday. But then again, if you remember high school chemistry and all that talk about molecules frantically bouncing around, then you get the picture.
The kids had two egg hunts this year. One here first thing, and one at my Mom's house in the afternoon. Can you say "Sugar High"?
We were 13 at dinner last night again. I know that it is suppose to be a bad thing, but I think that the superstition arose quite a while ago when the death rate was much higher. As I recall, if you sat 13 at dinner, one of you was suppose to die within the next year. Thank heaven for modern medicine.
Along with my crew, there was mom and dad, My brother Von, his fiance Audrey, his daughter Jordyn. and Craig and his girlfriend Heather. Craig is a student at the university who helps Dad and Von at the farm.
Lots of food was eaten and lots of wine was drunk. All in all, it was a great time.

Nick would have liked to have been at your house! It sounds like a great crowd for dinner - lots of fun (and work)! I hope you had a great Easter Jackie!

I quite remember the pandemonium from last year's egg hunt. :) And if memory serves, the video camera didn't have time to make it out of your bag then as well.

I am glad everyone had fun.

We had a lovely time, too. Fiona kept asking us to hide the eggs over and over and over again.

Sounds like you had fun. I did fine until it was time to go and then I ate enough chocolate before going out the door, that I got my sugar high on the way home, LOL. No falling asleep while driving!
