Easter Violence and Sibling Love

We had our annual Easter Egg Brawl Hunt.
I can't believe that my kids are 22, 19 and 16 and I'm still doing this.  Yeah - I had to get them out of bed at 9 am on Saturday morning.

The rules are always the same -

 Everyone gets ONE Golden Egg and ONE box of See's Candy and if you see multiples of other items, take one and let the other's get theirs'.  It's a tough concept.  Even for "almost" adults.
 No killing each other.
 Next year, I will add - no throwing furniture or each other.
 Be kind and loving.
 How come Parker has THREE Golden Eggs and Garrett has TWO boxes of See's?
 Additional rule - Don't shoot people in the eye. Oh, and pick up the mini marshmallows after you shoot them!  Oh and put the furniture back!
I hope you weekend was less violent than mine!

I did a egg hunt with scavenger clues.

The boys are 9 and 10... they can read. So, I did not have to get out of bed at 6 am. They got up, read the first clue and found the first egg. Then read the second clue, and so on and so on.

The Prizes kept them busy and I slept in til 9 am. :)

I love my girls - although they fought over make up and clothes borrowing - not Easter egg hunts!
