If you want to get the kids up in the morning

Get them these little suckers:

What are they, you ask? Animal? Vegetable? Mineral? Nope. They are a gift from Grammy and Grampy and I have NEVER seen my kids get up and dressed so fast in my life as they did this morning. Shirts, pants, socks, GO! All so they could rush downstairs to see if their eggs had cracked:

I don't know where they come from, but we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our creatures with baited breath. There were squeals of delight at the eggs starting to open. I think it's so much more ingenious than the sponge creatures that just explode upon impact with water. These hatch. Welcome to Spring - you never know what you'll find growing this time of year...
