Egg Fest

I have friends that are moving away today. Not far away, but far enough that I won't see them 4-5 times a week. And it's beginning to set in, as they load up their truck.

We were lucky that we were able to have them join some other friends at our place for an egg decorating party yesterday. It was a good time, fast and furiously crazy.

On your marks, Get set, Go! Chris and Shaylee were ready to drop those eggs in.

Bryn is a cool customer, perfectly content to wait forever for her egg to achieve the perfect shade of pink.

Sam cracked me up. He looks the part, with the egg dipper, stirring and everything...but don't be fooled.

Every time I'd turn my back, a blue egg would mysteriously appear in his hand.

The bigger kids: Chris, Bryn, and Xander were having a great time getting artsy.

Chris especially took to these paint sticks that Jaime brought. So cool.

Sam had a favorite egg, that he smashed the shell to smithereens before he even got it, and dropped in blue dye anyway. Then he started getting all whiny when I took it away to try to dry. Amy was giving him the loves trying to comfort him. It worked for about three seconds. Turns out he was hungry. He ended up eating 7 chicken mcnuggets later.

I love this picture. Makes me sad at the same time as being happy.

Our final product. It was good to go out with a playdate bang. It's almost getting real now.
