Practicing for Easter

We are eggcited about Easter, that is for sure.  Ben thinks every egg has a little dinosaur inside and avery and sass want to color everything they can find, pink, so it works out.  Yesterday, we decided to do it outside, since the last few times we have turned everything in our house a different color.  This time it stayed pretty much just on the eggs.  whew.

I have tried to tell them that markers dont stay after you dye them- they wont listen...

Then ben found a roly poly and his life was complete.  (Isnt that picture so creepy with bens blue fingers! hahha! It cracks me up!)

Then, they, immediately, wanted to crack them after they had been dyed to see what was inside and, maybe, eat them.  That kind of makes me gag because I am not a big hard boiled egg fan, but they like them enough to try them and then throw them away.
Overall, it was good practice.  I am sure we will have many more practice sessions to make sure we are doing it eggsactly right...
