Winning the Christmas Pickle

Hiding the Pickle on the Christmas tree is a tradition our family has had since the boys were toddlers.  The boys would rush down the steps to find the pickle.  Whoever found the pickle got an extra gift, so of course they tripped over one another to get to the tree first.  
Winning the pickle prize was quite an accomplishment.
The typical prize would be a game or toy the boys could share.
As they grew, the pickle prize lost it's luster.
The boys no longer cared if they won the prize or not.
 This year Zachary was the only one looking for the pickle because his 
brother's couldn't get out of bed.
 He looked a good 5 minutes before his Dad joined in the hunt.
I hid it well!!
 ps. The pickle is behind one of the red stars!!
This year the Pickle Prize was $50.00
You should have seen his brothers faces when they knew what Zachary won!!
I think next year they will get out of bed, don't you?
