Here's how a 17-year old colors Easter eggs:

Nephew sits at table texting his friends.
Aunt asks nephew to color Easter eggs with cousins.
Aunt begs nephew to color Easter eggs with cousins.
Aunt pleads with nephew to color Easter eggs with cousins.
Aunt reminds nephew of the number of Barney and Power Ranger's episodes she watched with him when he was his cousin's age.
Aunt resorts to guilting nephew into coloring Easter eggs with cousins using the "We came all this way," song and dance. It worked. Sort of.
Nephew begrudgingly concedes to color Easter eggs with cousins.
Nephew walks over with IPhone in one hand picks up an egg in the other and plunks it into the pink cup. (The egg not the IPhone, silly.)
Nephew sits back down at table and resumes texting.
All without saying a word.
Apparently, he didn't want to color Easter eggs.

Hi Kimberley! I experimented with PhotoShop Elements that my husband has on his work laptop. We are going to use our Costco rebates to buy the software to use at home. I can't wait!

You gotta love teenagers' enthusiasm...for their cell phones. I tried to get the neighborhood teenage boys to help me hide eggs yesterday. I don't need to tell you how that turned out. Good times.

I know, real maturity, right back at him!
