Another week come and gone. Where is the time going? I can’t believe we have Easter this weekend. Wasn’t it just the new year? This week flew by so quickly. I had great intentions, again, of dying eggs with the kids yesterday, but then they came home, played outside for 2.5 hours and I couldn’t get them to clean up. So they ate dinner and went to bed because I just couldn’t handle anymore after yelling at them for 40 minutes to clean up. They took a box with packing peanuts out to play in the yard. They were EVERYWHERE! (Luckily they’re the bio-degradable kind and they did a really good job getting them all picked up, after 3o minutes of yelling.) So today is Friday. We started with a fresh slate and got the day going.
The kids got up too early for a day off of school. I told them I was going to read for an hour. Apparently that wasn’t good enough for them, they wanted to eat NOW. So Monkey decided to make breakfast for everyone. She’s almost 6! She got bowls and gave everyone cereal while I read. I got up, washed dishes, boiled eggs and then we started making our cracked dyed deviled eggs. The downside… I didn’t realize the eggs would have to sit in the dye for HOURS to make them pretty.
Tomorrow I’ll be posting the finished project since I won’t be getting them done until 3pm or so today. The kids had a good time cracking the eggs and choosing which color to put them in. We’ll also be dying our Easter eggs tonight, after I make it to the store to get the dye. You can see below that I first of all didn’t leave the egg in the water long enough to make it pretty and you can see the pretty cloth diaper I made by sucking some of the water out of the glasses so they wouldn’t pour out everywhere.
