We are officially ready for Easter. Today we covered the table in newspaper, put paint smocks on the girls and dyed Easter eggs. I have to say that J is too young for this activity. There was a LOT of screaming on her part because she wanted to do it herself, but couldn't work the tongs very well to keep a hold of the eggs and we were afraid she was going to spill the dye everywhere.

M did a much better job than J, but she just wanted to drop the eggs into the dye cups. I really like writing on the eggs with the white crayon, making them tie-dyed by spooning the dye over the egg wrapped in paper towel and experimenting to get multi-colored eggs. I didn't really get to do things my way. Oh well, we didn't dye eggs for me... Maybe next year they'll want to do things my way. Who am I kidding, they'll always want to do it their way, but maybe next year I'll learn to let go a little more. Or, maybe I'll boil 2 dozen eggs, 1 dozen for the girls to dye and 1 dozen for me :)

As of Tuesday, J is officially over her breathing problems and her coughing is much much better. YEAH! Tonight we went out to eat at Sonic. I was very surprised at how well J sat at the picnic table and ate her dinner without a problem. M got up and down more than J did.

This week was "Week of the Young Child" at daycare so each day the kids wore something special, hats on Monday, pajamas on Tuesday, school colors on Wednesday, mis-matched cloths on Thursday and cardinals gear today. M had a lot of fun with this especially getting to wear her pjs to school and mis-match day which she often participates in all on her own. She loves to pick out her own crazy, mismatched, outfits!

Oh, and I forgot to mention... G got the new lights up in the kitchen already. They are much brighter and more modern than the old ones and I love them!
