What kind of mother am I? We have never dyed Easter eggs with my kids for one reason or another. For many years, we found ourselves at Lads to Leaders convention over Easter. Then, other times we would be knee deep in Makin Music preparations, but this year none of that was upon us and we took the time to dye eggs this year. I am glad that we did wait because the kids really enjoyed themselves - watching the colors change and decorating them. Laura Beth asked if they would hide the eggs tomorrow. We told her we could, but we would need to find them because they would begin to stink. Therefore, I think she has decided NOT to hide her dyed eggs. I used too big of glasses for the dye, so the egg dippers did not work very well for the kids. They liked putting their hands into the dye!!! Carter declared that Laura Beth was turning into the Wicked Witch of the West!!! Needless to say, we all had a great time and are ready for all the Easter happenings tomorrow will bring.
