Decorating Eggs... and toes!

We have invited Linda to decorate eggs with us the last couple of years, in fact the first year we did was apparently the first time she had ever done it!

This year was no different, but having had an afternoon with a houseful of kids already she didn't sound very certain she would be coming. So in the late afternoon it occurred to me to have Dustin call Uncle Kevin, and see if he and Joy might want to come decorate eggs with us, and sure enough, they did! Having company keeps Mom and Dad from yelling too much It's always nice to include extra family in our activities!

They didn't decorate any eggs, though. They were just as happy to watch Zachary, and help him a little bit!

Then Kevin thought it would be funny to paint Zachary's toenail with the egg dye. Zachary looked a bit nervous about the whole idea, and got down from his lap to show Mommy. Mommy said, "OOOHHH, did Uncle Kevin paint your toe? Isn't it pretty?" Zachary decided it was safe, and went back to Kevin to get the other 9 painted! Such a riot!

Hi Marie J,

I'm enjoying checking out your blog. Your kids are super cute.

Love the painting the toes with egg dye. One of the best fathers I know has 4 daughters and 1 son, and he paints his girls' nails and does their hair with him.

Thanks for your comments and encouragement.
