Eggciting Time

A few weeks ago, our daughter Jen called and said "Mom, you should get some plastic eggs and fill them with candy and egg your neighbors." Well, given the chance to egg someone was way too tempting to pass up.

 

I needed a partner in this eggciting project..so guess who I called? Well next door neighbor Jo of course she seems to be up for small adventures! I warned my nephew and neice..he is the one that busted me last fall when we were delivering cute little scarecrows in the neighboorhood after dark. I drove, most people know my little red vehicle,so they probably won’t call the cops. If they do I can imagine the report, two old ladies with bunny ears, leaving nests filled with eggs have been apprehended and held in jail til after Easter.

 

We made a list..and checked it twice. At houses with dogs we made sure the eggs were up and out of reach. I purchased candy that is wrapped, put it in the plastic eggs..scotch tapped the egg shut and about half of the eggs have a band that says. You have been egged!! Happy Easter!! I made the band on the computer, cut and pasted it in different colors and cut them out with a decorative scissors. Easy, peasy..you too can egg your neighbors! I even egged a few guys in the local grocery store parking lot..they drove away smiling.


 

I borrowed my ears to Barb so she could be in the photo with her kids!

It all went off without a hitch..the little kids liked the delevieries..the weather was beautiful..it was a great day to be out and about, it was almost seventy degrees..almost unheard of for Minnesota the last day of March.

You all have time to do this before Easter.. I had to do it yesterday..because I am cooking Easter Dinner this year and I will need to start getting ready..as I am sure that our guests will expect more than just boiled hot dogs:)

    This sounds like so much fun. And it is a nice group picture with the moms bunny ears. That was so sweet of you. You are a great neighbor.

    Sounds like you have fun in your neighborhood!! I wasn’t sure what you meant in your email about going to egg the neighborhood, but as Paul Harvey would say, “and now you know the rest of the story.” :-)
