Dye job

OK, OK, Easter is over. How do people manage to get everything done and blog about it all before any holiday? We just barely managed to squeeze in a half hour to dye eggs before bedtime on Saturday so they'd be ready for Easter Sunday.


Joseph was all. up. in. my. face. with excitement while I was doing the prep work as we waited for Benjamin to come over to join us.


Luckily he was all up in Brent's and his own as well.



I told you he was excited!


He had to test the waters first,



and then it was all in. Hardest part was letting them stay in the dye for a few minutes.


Benjamin matched Joseph's excitement level. These 2 were throwing eggs and dye was splashing everywhere!



A beautiful dye job!



Warning: crafting can be hazardous to your health. I think I was on the verge of a heart attack the entire time.

With good reason:


But the boys had the greatest time. Joe Joe has asked every day since if we can dye eggs with Benjamin again after dinner. Makes it worth the stress. And mess!
