First, we decorated Easter eggs.
Megan thought the color pellets were pretty cool, helping to drop them in and watching the change.
She liked dropping the eggs in the cups although she didn't quite understand that eggs are breakable. She liked to add the stickers, too, but was more interested in dyeing over and over.
She found a piece of newspaper that had blown into our yard and carried it everywhere for the next hour. She was cracking me up holding it like she was reading while swinging. (Note, it is difficult to snap a picture of a child swinging.)
She apparently wanted to eat her morning waffle in her box.
One of Megan's newest things to do is to tell "Knock Knock" jokes. Her favorite episode of Backyardigans has Uniqua telling two such jokes and she started asking repeating parts of it. The above video is a combination of her jokes. The first is the classic:
Banana, then you repeat all of it again, the punchline is "Orange you glad I didn't say banana?"
Well, she usually starts the joke with orange and keeps saying different parts as long as the laughs continue.
She ends up with "Don't Cry" in this video, which is a completely different joke...

Anyway, what does this have to do with this post? After the conference, Chad and I decided to set some specific goals related to what we learned and we decided to have a regular family night. 2 Friday nights a month we have Family Night, 1 night we have a date night, and 1 night a month one of us will take Megan on a date (the other parent gets the night off).
Phase 1: Because Megan is pretty easy to please, we decided to have a "picnic" in the foyer. She thought this was pretty cool.
Phase 2: We spent about an hour playing play-doh, which is one of her favorite things to do.
