We do write messages on some of them in crayon before they get colored...but this year they ended up particularly lame. (ie, Braithwaites are cool! Mom is hot! (I was hoping Larry meant me...not his actual mom :), our names, pictures of very ugly bunnies, eyeballs, and more) I wish I could say we were more artistic in the egg department...but we weren't. The girls enjoyed it, though...and the bunny hid them just the same. Maybe next year we will up our game!
