When La got home from class, she found this tacked to the front door:
When she stuck her hand into my jeans pocket, she found a small folded card, containing the first of eight clues:
We all watched her zip around the house, looking in drawers and under plants, gathering additional clues. For a while she was stumped by a clue that was hidden in the car she drove home in. Eventually she stood on a chair in the bedroom and poked her hand under the blankets on the kitty's bed, and found a birthday card:
Later on, she arranged the clues on the bedspread and unscrambled the final word, which sent her to the living room, where she found four wrapped presents.
Hooray for the Birthday La!
