On Monday night we decorated Easter eggs and I felt like a kid all over again (I love this kind of stuff)! Decorating Easter eggs with a one year old however proved to me that I was in fact, not the one who was the kid in the room.
I thought I might be losing my mind to let Liam anywhere in a 10 foot radius of glass cups filled to the brim with colored die but those little hands were highly monitored on daddy's lap and all was right in the world! He loved helping lower the eggs into the glass and became a master at swirling the spoon!
Instead of buying a kit from the store like we usually do we used vinegar and food coloring. I used this chart to create some pretty mint and coral colors. I'm sure I can count on a whole host of stickers, crayons, and other craziness involved in the future but this year we called it good after coloring them. We made it through the whole process without a single egg being dropped or broken so I called that a win in my book!
I'm getting so excited for Sunday! The Easter program at church is always one of my favorites. I used nap time today to fill Easter baskets with fun goodies and I can't wait for the Easter bunny to hide eggs for Liam to hunt for! ;) I think he's going to freak when he discovers there are jelly beans inside! We're hoping for good weather to let Rue hop around the backyard for her very first time too!
