Dyeing Eggs

So here it is the night before Easter and we still have NO eggs ready for the Easter Bunny. What's a family to do? Well boil some eggs of course and get them ready!

Clean, cooled boiled eggs ready to be dyed!
Our PAAS dye in coffee mugs, just like we used to do it when I was a kid.

Drop cloth down, everyone ready! Be silly, Go!

Emily in her egg dying shirt, a girl has gotta dress for the occasion, right?

The little Marine ready to dye his eggs!

You can't really tell but Grandma wrote a special secret message on those eggs for the kids. Just like when i was a kid!

Grandma trying to figure out what to draw on the egg for Emily.

Emily dying her egg pink, of course!

Ben's special egg he told Grandma what to draw, but won't tell anyone else.

Oh a shark, of course, to match your pjs that you have been in all day!

and water, of course the shark needs that!

Grandma and Bubba sharing a special moment of arguing most likely... that boy LOVES to argue, sound familiar gma? LOL!

Grandma dyeing her own "special egg"

Our eggs. Look in the far corner and you will see grandma's "special" egg, it said "mommy". Thanks, mom!

All of the eggs going into the fridge for the Easter Bunny, I hope he comes tonight! Now off to bed with the two of you!
I made such a big deal about going to sleep Emily woke up about midnight bawling because she was coughing ALOT and having a hard time sleeping and she told me "Mommy, I can't sleep and the Easter Bunny is NOT going to come." I had to put her in bed with me just to calm her down. Wow, I think they will need some therapy soon! :)
