Then it was time to color Easter eggs. My kids look forward to this so very much! Last year we only did 1 dozen and they were done coloring them in about 10 minutes and begging to do more. So, this year I made sure we had a lot more, and even then the girls still put the eggs in color after color after color. And they even took some of the dry eggs and put them in more color. It was no wonder that the dye never really dried and ended up coloring our hands on Easter morning! It was a good time though. Sometimes I wish that we could dye eggs every few months instead of once a year. Maybe I'll see if I can find some clearance egg dying kits and do just that!

I love this picture
She just looks so sad.....
Which was not at all how she was acting.....
Funny what the camera catches, things are not always what they seem.
Easter morning the girls got up, got their Easter baskets and promptly ate every bit of their chocolate. I was shocked when I saw all the wrappers. They are chocolate eating machines! We played around the house until the sugar high got to be too much and then went outside to hunt for eggs. It's been rainy for the past 3 weekends so the grass has not been mowed in a while which made for a very lovely field for eggs to hide in. Maddie and Charlotte both had a great time hunting for eggs.
