Coloring Easter Eggs

While Trip was napping (or atleast supposed to be napping- he doesn't feel good and has refused to go to sleep today), Ruby colored Easter eggs for the 1st time. I didn't want her to handle the dye on her own for fear of a major disaster so she colored them with crayons before I dropped them in the dye. When they were dry she put some stickers on them. I actually enjoyed it too. The smell of the vinegar and the sound of the color tablets fizzing was very nostalgic. Only 3 cracked eggs later, we have some colorful eggs for our Easter centerpiece.

Good to hear from you! I'm glad you are back and I had fun looking at all your new posts and pictures. Wow, the kids have grown so much! They are super cute. We are going to dye Easter eggs today and I think I'm going to take your advice to use the crayons before dying them. Good idea! Hope you all have a fun weekend!
