Easter was really fun this year! The kids are finally old enough to enjoy the egg dyeing (as opposed to The Frog's first Easter, when I ended up sitting alone, dyeing all the eggs myself. fun.) I tried to show the kids the trick where you color on the egg in white crayon and then when you dye the egg, the crayon part stays white. They all took it a step further and colored with all kinds of colors before dying them, which turned out to be a great way for Hazel to be able to participate too.
It was super disturbing to see those little bugs crawling in her hair, and even MORE disturbing to see how many eggs were in there. We are so lucky that nobody else seems to have gotten it. (where SHE got it, I have no idea...) Needless to say, my spring cleaning got a huge jump-start that day, since I had to wash pretty much everything in the house that could be thrown in the washing machine and vacuumed everything else.
We're still on red-alert around here, but so far so good :)
Sorry to end on such a yucky note.
