easter: part i

so we dyed eggs this year. our first year dying eggs with kids, and i must say, a smashing success. we did it while hyde was napping (best decision ever), kept it relatively simple with just a few eggs and even managed to keep it pretty clean. beth would drop the eggs in the cup, stir it around for about 2 seconds - literally - see that it had some color on it and then exclaim "mom, the egg is green!" and want to move on to the next one. so the whole process only lasted about 20 minutes, but it was still so fun.

i love that she is old enough now to start participating in these kinds of traditions - the stuff i remember and loved doing as kid doing with my family. she's now at that age where we can start giving that to her and it's awesome. i love it. it's a stellar thing when they start to "get it" and you can really have fun with these holidays and make good memories of them.

beth is very into making funny faces for the camera these days...

hank getting serious with the two-tone...

(please don't drop it, please don't drop it, please...)

we almost made it through without any uncracked eggs... 3 out of 15 isn't bad a for a 3 year old, right? frankly i thought my odds were a lot worse!

and a little sneak peek of easter morning:

more of easter day to come...
