Happy Easter - The Neices were Pleased...
The girls, 11 and 14, were pleased with their loot. This year began the shift away from candy (a very slow shift, I grant) to other noshes (cheese!) and next year will evolve towards books and clothes yet further...with more cheese and noshes thrown in.
Regrettably, eldest niece is persuaded that vegetarianism is somehow virtuous (we all hope for her recovery), thus a great big liverwurst would likely not be appreciated by her next year.
After determining her father was likely to be the bane of her future potential boyfriends, her mother suggested that she could instead be picked up by said boyfriends over here - at which point elder niece nearly imploded with horror, as she is fully aware I'm a wee tad protective and have a far broader range of material with which to terrify a teen-aged boy into good behavior than even her rather dreadful father can summon.
