Today is Easter! Happy Easter to everyone out there! Thank you everyone who is following me either here or on Facebook or Twitter. Makes me excited to see that someone might be interested in what we're doing.
Every Easter previous to this one, we color eggs. About 4 dozen of them. We have a great time. The kid's fingers are more colorful than the eggs. Big problem is...what to do with all those eggs. My ex would eat them but The Greek hates hardboiled eggs. My boys LOVE them, especially deviled eggs. If I make a dozen they will eat a dozen. That's not a good thing.
This year I told them that we weren't going to color eggs this year. They weren't upset about the not coloring but about the no deviled eggs. I made a deal with them that I would make half a dozen deviled eggs but we would paint some ceramic eggs instead so we could keep them for future decorations. They agreed
So today, we spread newspapers on the kitchen table and painted eggs. The boys each did 2 and I did one and took pictures.
Rabbit was very methodical painting his and I think they turned out great. Horse started out with a brush then moved to more of a flood your plate and dunk method. Needless to say, his are very well covered but priceless keepsakes. You'll be able to tell mine. It's the only "girlie" one.

|Horse thinks the mess is half the fun!|
|Rabbit's are near the top. Horse's on the bottom.|
It was a lot of fun and I'd like to make it a regular tradition.
