Every year I dream of making these amazing and awe-inspiring decorated Easter eggs, and every year something happens (like last year when we didn’t even color the eggs that I’d boiled because we forgot about them) that prohibits the artistic mode and we just don’t find that creative flow.
This year was no different.
Visions of beauty like this danced in my head:
But reality took over:
Notice those ‘No Spill’ egg dyeing doohickeys? Not so much ‘no spill’ – just so you know. They spill. And are a royal pain fishing the eggs back out of them, resulting in multicolored mama fingertips. I’m just sayin’.
Notice the hubby’s in the background playing Angry Birds on his Kindle Fire (pausing every so often to check on the solitary yellow egg he was working on getting the color just right to make an egg Angry Bird) while Princess Nagger was being goofy and Little Dude wasn’t sure what he was going to do:
While we didn’t get creative or artistic (or creatively artistic), and I neglected to get a final picture of the completely finished eggs, at the end of the day everyone had fun and it was quality time well spent as a family.
That’s what counts.
Do you color Easter eggs as a family (or at all)?
