Dying Easter Eggs

We dyed Easter eggs yesterday afternoon. It was a pretty uneventful egg-dying session so I don't know that I have very much to say about it, except that my kids are cute...

They all just kind of...were cooperative and stuck with the task at hand and nothing too chaotic happened. Which, is really nice. Reid once told me that as a parent that's what you want in life: mundane, uneventful, boring. He's...not wrong.

But zero mishaps and zero issues with behaviour makes for poor writing fodder, so here we are.

We all had fun being creative together, anyway.

Here's Andrew showing off the tray of our finished eggs, but I would like to draw your attention to the background. No, not the shelf piled high with papers and junk. You can just ignore that (I do). But the pictures on the wall behind him! Look at those and you'll see remnants of an April Fool's Day prank.

I drew on the children's portraits, giving them mustaches and monocles and things like that (I didn't ever get around to posting about April Fool's Day, did I?).


  1. Two comments: 1. That picture of Miss Z with her house scrunched up--I am just seeing some Karen in Z in that picture!
    2. Behind Andrew--did you FINISH Alexander's portrait?!!

    1. In answer to your question:

      Technically we have it finished digitally we just STILL haven't printed it! Hahaha!

  2. House? Where did house come from? How did my brain take "nose" and turn it into "house" without me even being aware of it? Her NOSE is scrunched up. Not her HOUSE!!
