You've Been Egged!

This past weekend I decided to egg my neighbors house and I have to say it was a lot of fun. Yes, you heard me right, I egged my neighbors house.....Ok...... You know I did enough of that as a teenager I'm too nice to do that but rather I got this really cute idea from the eighteen 25 blog and decided that I couldn't wait until Easter to do this to the twins next door. All you do is get a couple dozen plastic eggs and fill them with candy, coins, toys and sweet little notes about what you like about them. You hide the eggs in their yard, hang the "you've been egged" sign on their front door, ring the doorbell, and run like heck so they don't see you. I timed it in the afternoon after their afternoon nap and then hid in my yard with my camera to catch all of the fun! I can't tell you how excited they were - they absolutely loved it and they are still trying to "investigate" and solve the mystery. I was surpised by how much they got into the "investigation" part of this and I decided to leave clues behind in their mailbox for the following 7 days. They have no idea it was me and that's half the fun since it's too early for the Easter bunny.







I thought egging my neighbors was the perfect chance to capture FUN for Beth's You Capture challenge this week. So what do you think....wanna egg your neighbors? If so download the template at eighteen 25.

What a fun idea! I'm going to remember that one for the future. You must have been sneaky to be taking pictures without them seeing you!
