So every year Janine has the Christmas cookie baking deal so I figured I could have coloring Easter Eggs.  I mean, it involves color, decorating and painting…this is perfect for me.  I carefully spread out the dyes, food coloring, egg dippers, pens and more and we are set for an afternoon of creative Easter egg dying.  I even got in on the action and created my own

Gee, this is relaxing.  Yep, I found my creative niche and everyone is having a great time……..this is great.  But do you really believe that could be true with 6 kids….there always has to be one in the bunch

It was Joey's turn….there goes peace, tranquility and creativity right out the front door.

….but all in all it was great and after that experience Janine and I were numb (anyone notice men in background being the smart ones).  All Janine and I could do was laugh and be thankful that coloring eggs is another 365 days away.  And in the end all turned out smiles and fun as you can see here.

So now I am re-thinking the whole creative mom deal and going to let Janine have the holidays.  She is so much better at that stuff.  I will stick to taking the photos.
