We kinda forgot about decorating eggs and luckily I remembered about it the day before Easter!!! Oops 🙂 It was more fun this year than last year and I know it’s one of those things that will only continue to be more fun each year (until he gets to the age where he thinks it’s “lame”…). Now that he’s getting older it’s so fun for me to look back at blog entries from his FIRST year (here’s the one about his first Easter…he was TINY!) Mom came over early that Saturday morning to help!
I know this is a lot of pictures of Kye coloring the eggs, but it made me laugh to see how many different ways he holds the crayon!
proud of his work
He was VERY focused on the coloring and stayed into it a lot longer than I expected
in charge of the actual dying part
coloring king and queen!
Gramma making her special egg
We went with the basic dye kit this year, nothing fancy needed
I was an official egg checker (I think Zach’s attention span was shorter than Kye’s with this project haha)
the kit even came with stickers, Kye was in HEAVEN!
His attention ended when he realized he can eat the eggs…then it’s all he wanted to do
I told him to hold up his egg and he just kept trying to put it in his mouth 😉
(btw I’m wearing the Amanda necklace – love how you can layer it or where it long!)
Blitzen’s egg (before he or she was called Blitzen…)
Kye’s egg (removed from mouth…)
and Gramma’s egg!
It was MUCH more fun than I had thought it would be and it was SO cute how much Kye enjoyed the eggs. When we’d eat them after Easter he’d say “bunny hides eggs.” He loved that they were special Easter Bunny eggs!
