I'm Gonna Miss This...

Last Saturday, the boys and I spent the afternoon dying Easter eggs. They had so much fun deciding which colors they were going to use, how to mix them, what colors to use with what colors...it is all science! I loved spending the time with them. I sat across the table, camera in hand, just watching and listening! It was such an amazingly fun time!
Getting ready...


Working closely together to get just the right combination...
Brendan getting it just right...
Colin so proud of his egg...

I know that soon, these all too eager boys will be too old or too busy to spend an afternoon dying Easter eggs (or hunting them for that matter!), so for now and the next few years, I will sit back, camera in hand, smiling, listening and loving the fact that they are so careful at picking and choosing the colors they will dye their eggs!

Great family times! I pray they always want to dye eggs but I know they won't!

Yep, I already miss that. This was our first year we didn't do it. I still wonder if that was the right decision. Oh well, what's done is done.

Looks like your guys had a great time!

I will miss that too. Loved the eggs...they did such a great job! Wow you did alot of eggs. I do 12 between the three. Short event of coloring for us:)

What great pictures of a special time. They did an awesome job coloring those eggs. How many dozen were there?

We did 15 for 5 kids. We easily could have done more because they love deviled eggs and egg salad. Useless info I realize. LOL

What fun! I still enjoy dyeing eggs, too, and hope we will do that together for a long time too!
What great pictures, and a great memory! The boys did a wonderful job choosing their creations! ;)

That looks like fun!!!! When I think about them growing so quickly sometimes it just depresses me...I try not to think about that! :)

Pretty eggs.

You were actually the inspiration behind my YGMT post. Thanks for reminding me of that moment. Since I had the same type of pictures, it was perfect to write about.

OH I bet having older children makes it alot less stressful than us!

Looks like a good time.
