Matteo turned 19 at about the same time that 100 years passed from the Titanic tragedy! Matteo celebrated at a pizzeria with friends and a classic American chocolate cake... always the favourite birthday cake as far as my boys are concerned. (Aurora's birthday is in the summer heat and Minerva's is on vacation in Finland, therefore Fazer's Kinuski kakku)

and no... I didn't feel up to decent decorating... as long as it tastes good... =)

Easter Bunny Hunt

Easter morning we found this in the fridge:

                           And so Clue 1 was hidden with the eggs...

And it took us to volume 25 of the Encyclopedia (page on Leonardo da Vinci) and a Glass Jar labelled Nini...

                        Clue 2 took us into the garden, under the rain...

 And two more jars, one labelled Camilla (Luca's girl friend) and Aurora

       Clue 3 took us into the oven.... and jars for Luca and Tea

Clue 4 took us to the court-yard and jars for Minerva and Matteo

All the jars of chocolate eggs were now gathered on the table

Clue 5 led us to the tent in Minerva's room... and a basket full of goodies...

                             Where will Clue 6 lead?????

                                 UNDER THE TABLE!!!

A book for each kid! What a smart Easter Bunny we had this year!
(Wildwood, Hunger Games, Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, a tin box with four diaries, and .... Matteo is in Naples and hasn't opened hid yet)
