Easter Eggs

On Easter morning Mabel Watson Payne went across the street to the neighborhood cafe with Grandma and Grandpa. While she was out of the apartment, it was understood that Mamma and Daddy and the Easter Bunny would work together to hide the whole familiar collection of plastic eggs from the yellow basket, but in this case each plastic egg would have a little treat inside. When Mabel came back from the cafe she set about hunting down all the eggs and accumulating them on the floor next to the empty yellow basket.  

After all the plastic eggs were found, present-opening needed to happen. From a basket that looked like a nest Mabel picked a chocolate egg wrapped in blue foil. Grandma helped unwrap it. Later, Mabel was able to help Grandpa unwrap his chocolate egg when he was having difficulties.
