We Colored Easter Eggs... While It Snowed Outside

Last Sunday as all four of us were recovering from some kind of cough/respiratory infection, a crazy late snowstorm hit, giving us about 8 inches of snow.  Between our coughing and watching the snow, it felt more like Christmas than Easter!

Since we were stuck in the house anyway, I decided it would be a good time to bring some Easter cheer (Christmas cheer?) to our day by decorating eggs.

You may remember that coloring Easter eggs, carving pumpkins, and decorating Christmas cookies are three of Frank's favorite activities, (that was sarcasm), but he's actually becoming quite a pro at all three.

I wasn't really sure if Jacob had the dexterity yet to handle using a dipper and putting the egg in the dye, but he surprised me.  No eggs were cracked, although I did yell, "GENTLE!" about 523 times during the process.

Then he realized if he didn't use the dipper, he could turn his hands different colors, too.  It was hands-in-the-dye from then on out.

I think Carter was kind of annoyed that he was in his high chair and no one was feeding him, so he was a very loud little supervisor throughout the activity.

The eggs turned out really pretty this year.  Now if only the weather would cooperate and warm up, we would be all set for Easter!
