Coloring Eggs.....

We colored our Easter eggs last Friday night. Even Noah's eggs were all different colors and decorated. It's nice not to have all brown eggs anymore! (from them being put into every color there is over and over again!) Vance was giving us some "attitude" about coloring them. He actually had other things he wanted to do instead. He told us that he was too old to color eggs. We said that no one is too old to color eggs! And that if he really didn't want to color them, we would do them for him. He decided to color them after all. Hmmmm I guess he's not too old! The kids each had a dozen eggs of their own to color and then we always do a few extra just in case some crack while they're boiling. So, we ended up with about 55 boiled eggs to eat! Some became deviled eggs for Easter dinner, but most were "snacked" on by the kids and Chad. McKaylie and Noah ate the last three this morning for breakfast! (I would never let them color that many if I didn't know they'd be eaten!) It's always fun to watch them "create" their eggs and see how they change from year to year!
