EARRING-ing in Spring...A Birthday Scavenger Hunt

Today is my daughter's birthday.
It is also the weekend of a milestone 
High School Reunion 
for me in 
Southern California.

I will be home by noon, 
but I feel so guilty for missing a minute of her
12th Birthday.

She has always taken pride in her birthday being the first day of Spring.

She is also very excited about her newly pierced ears. 
 I decided to combine the two in a
Scavenger Hunt 
that she will wake up to this morning.

little clues leading her to earring gifts will be all around the house

(my son picked these out)

and these are the instructions for my husband to follow 
early this morning to get it all set up...
thanks Matt.

Happy Birthday Sweet Carolyn!
