Eggs! Eggs! Eggs!

Sorry about the delay...we were waiting to get a video, but had some technical difficulties. :)

One of my favorite parts of Easter is dying eggs and we decided to share that joy with Hailey Easter afternoon. I think we were a little over prepared for a huge mess, which was a good surprise! We both changed our clothes, took Hailey's off and got an old blanket to cover the floor. We put the dye into mugs of water and showed Hailey the carton of eggs, and let her go!

At first she was trying to crack the eggs because we make scrambled eggs so much, but she was having trouble. We showed her once how to dunk the eggs in the color and she picked it up so fast! In no time she had all the eggs colored! She even knew to only let one egg in the color at a time! It's amazing how big she's getting - I keep forgetting how much she can do on her own! (Her new phrase is "I'll do it!") Below is a picture of the big girl! (she doesn't even care we're there!)

Here's our finished product. Pretty good for 21 month old! There were a couple casualties that we lost along the way. She was getting cocky and threw a couple eggs into the mugs and they cracked :)
