Rob Thinks I’m a Serial Easter Sadist…

Prove him wrong; restore his opinion of his husband.

Because of the cruise and the fact most of my siblings won’t let their kids hunt eggs on a Sunday, our family Easter party had to be postponed until this coming Saturday. As I explained before, Rob and I are in charge of Easter festivities, and each year I do egg hunt puzzles for the coveted bronze, silver, and gold eggs.

Last year was admitedly tough; this year I bent to all the whining I usually get and made the gold egg more about simple games than mind games. They have various events such as a water carrying relay, pie eating contest, pushing a ping-pong ball in a race around the house using only their nose, and so on.

For the silver egg, though, I know some of my family would be let down without a puzzle of some sort (mainly those as nerdy as their uncle :-)). So I quickly repeated a catch phrase game from years past with new clues. Here it is:

Now, Rob says I’m horribly cruel to my nieces and nephews, and that “no one” can figure this out. I, in turn, wagered that if I put it on my blog, someone will at least get the clue before Friday night (which doesn’t necessarily require a solution for all the word puzzles).

I know no one here wants me to lose that bet, right? :-)

I second that request.

I forgot how the eyesight goes in our old age ;-). That, or how blogger resizes images.

Here's one.

I enlarged my screen view, and quite frankly, as a home school Mom who loves to add "educational fun" to everything, I think the puzzle is FABULOUS dawling!!

You rock, if the Fam can't handle it I'm afraid it only speaks to the human propensity to be.....lazy. Uhh, did I say that?

You are a cruel, cruel man.
Or maybe I'm just tired and am not thinking as creatively as I might. I'll come back to this tomorrow. So far I have 3 of them figured out, and another one or two I'm guessing on, but am not sure of.

I think I agree with Rob - this is just sick.

And not in a good way.
