Today a package arrived from some VERY THOUGHTFUL friends from Germany (THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!) Inside were German Cookies and several Kinder Eggs. I remember them from when we lived in Germany in the 80's.If you don't know what Kinder Eggs are you are MISSING OUT! They are chocolate eggs that contain a little plastic egg with a toy inside. It was VERY cool to share a piece of my childhood with Lucas.
Lucas is in LOVE with them now. He opened up more than half of the eggs without us realizing. When I caught him he was surrounded by wrappers and chomping on chocolate. He looked up at me with the biggest smile and said "Mommy, I REALLY LOVE CANDY!" The last few Kinder eggs are safely in our freezer.
