Coloring Easter Eggs, Coloring Davis

I am a little bit of a control freak, and try to keep things on the neat side, but I really let loose this year when I let the kids color the Easter Eggs on their own... no rules, no redirecting, no problem- right? We had our friends, the Thompson's over and things started out great, but quickly turned pretty messy. By the end, about 75% of Davis was covered in the dye and most of the eggs were cracked beyond edibility. The kids had a blast, though. (Just as a side note- Easter Egg Dye is semi-permanent... we had the blue-green monster running around our house for a couple of days.)

You are so brave and an awesome mom to let them do that. I still have a hard time letting Jared help with they dye. I do have to admit that I think boys are just a tad bit messier then girls.

Awesome! You are amazing to be able to do this! I was helping at a preschool in Murrieta for 3 year olds and the teacher kept getting mad at me cause I wouldn't let the kids handle the elmers glue bottles! Ummmmmm...if I'm the one who cleans up the mess, then they don't get to be "creative" about making a huge mess!! :)
