Coloring eggs...

Mike is conveniently out of town so this was all left up to me, oh YAY, NOT!  I HATE dying eggs, like seriously hate it.  We actually don't do this every year because my boys don't enjoy it either.  B did NOT want to do any, I told him he needed to because I needed pics. LOL, am I a true scrapper or what?!  So, while B was gone this morning, I boiled a bunch of eggs & got them ready, once he got home, I got everything out so the fun could begin.  It actually turned out much better than I thought it would.  The kids were all patient & waited their turns, there was no fighting, it was just... FUN!  We did have a couple of touchy times, Princess started eating an egg, yep, shell & all, all 4 other kids (my niece is here too) yelled to "STOP", she got scared & the bumper lip came out, poor thing.  The other time was when C got frustrated because D was using all the "good stickers" & there weren't going to be enough left for him.  We took care of that one, started to clean up & an egg fell & of course broke, unfortunately, it was D's.  YIKES, as soon as he realized it was his beloved "friend", we saw the tears.  My quick thinking stopped them & turned his frown upside down!  (Score 1 for mom!).  Anyway, all in all, it was actually fun, I'm sure M will be so proud of me.  (I'm kidding of course, he won't even notice) but that's ok, it brought a little bit of joy to my day & that's all that matters! :)

you're way better than me! I think we've done eggs once. I hate it too. Must run in the family. I did take the kids on an Easter egg hunt today though. By myself, thank you very much! Mike had to meet his uncle for somethin... Anyway, I really like Bray's hair too. When did he get it cut?
