Coloring Easter Eggs

I love to color Easter eggs and it was even more fun getting to see the kids having fun coloring eggs. Ever since I can remember we would each get a dozen eggs and we would decorate all but the few that dad would manage to eat. We didn't have the fancy kits that they have now where you can tye-dye your egg or make it shiny. But we still had lots of fun. It was great to see the girls get so excited about coloring eggs, and Walker seemed to like it too. He kept reaching for the colored eggs.

We had a little accident while coloring eggs. Erin was helping Elliott color and spilled a whole cup of green coloring all over him and all over the floor.

I think Elliott was less than excited about all the mess.
But even though we made a huge mess on mom's floor she just laughed about it. She said in all the years that we have colored Easter eggs (30+) that no one has ever spilled the dye on the carpet.
Elliott's legs and but got stained from the green but I think he was really just trying to get into the spirit.
Mom was trying to clean up the carpet. After we got it mopped up you couldn't really tell that it had happened. Thankfully she has carpet that hides messes well.
Walker is trying to reach for his eggs that I colored for him.
These are Grace's eggs.
And Liza was nice enough to pose with her eggs for a picture.

We had lots of fun. I am not really sure what we will do with all the eggs since we won't get to see the girls for Easter (they will be in Memphis, TN visiting their aunt and cousins) but we will figure something out. 

Walker is four months old today, my how time has flown. We has his check up, more on that later in the week.
