Coloring or Dyeing?

Which do you do? Do you color eggs or dye eggs? Rob and I both say "coloring" but Ava says "dyeing". I guess that is what her teachers say at preschool. Either way, we did just that on Sunday.

Blake was super excited since last year he had no clue what was even happening.  We each choose our colors.  Ava, pink.  Blake, green.  Rob, orange. Andrea, purple.  Thomas, aka Moosie, yellow.  Ty, Blue.

Ava is so grown up now that she could drop her egg in by herself, but Blake required a little help.

When we finished, we did the fancy glitter. I don't recommend it. It's messy and your eggs loose some of their color.

The kids were not happy that we were done.

But, it wasn't anything that a carrot shaped sugar cookie couldn't fix.

And so it begins...

I'm a little hesitant to say that Spring has Sprung here in Michigan. You just never know until mid-May if Spring is really here or if Mother Nature is just teasing us.

Today starts the beginning of 5 days of warm weather.  We celebrated by playing outside.  I hope you are somewhere warm playing outside too.

Here Comes Peter Cottontail...

Last weekend we took the kids for the yearly visit to the Easter bunny.  When Ava was Blake's age, we have not bunny picture because she refused to even go near him. In fact, she screamed so loud it bounced off the mall ceiling and echoed through the mall.

This year though, she was very excited.  She has been talking about waking up to eggs in her backyard for a week now. So, when we get up to the front of the line she starts in on him about the eggs...

You can see, that Blake did not like the bunny and couldn't get off his lap fast enough.

After we had pretzels from Auntie Annie's and all was well.

I got new glasses, that I must wear every day. Not sure how I feel about that.  I do think they are cute though.

Yes, again.

I've decided to stop living in my head again and start blogging at regular intervals.  Winter is hard on me. The endless cold, the grey days, staying inside ALL THE TIME.

The last week has been wonderful and sunny, so here I am...again.
