Egg dying adventure.

On Saturday we decided to dye Easter Eggs. I rarley boil eggs and had forgotten the distinct boiled egg smell. I was reminded once again that I do not appreciate that smell. I do, however, enjoy dying eggs so it was a sacrifice my nose had to make.
Kyrie enjoyed dying the Easter eggs as well as trying to drink the egg dye. She kept grabbing at the cups and saying juice. Her nose must not have detected the vinegar smell because no matter how many times I told her it was yucky she kept saying, "Yummmm juice!" over and over again until she finally succeeded in dumping the blue dye all over herself and the counter. I just have to say how thankful I am for 409! It works wonders.
Kyrie also discovered that when the eggs are dropped off the counter they made a wonderful cracking noise and she was then able to eat them.
Here is Kyrie enjoying the fruits of her labor. She has decided that she rather likes dying Easter Eggs and the colorful results she gets.

Holy Cow! I can't believe how many eggs you did! Me and Jemma did a grand total of SIX! (I don't really like deviled eggs or any other food that you can use boiled eggs in...egg salad sandwiches...as Jemma would say "Eww, Gross!". You're final product is very impressive though! All those colors just look so pretty together! And way to go Kyrie on getting a hold of the blue dye! Sounds like she and Sean could be quite the team these days! Have a happy Easter!

Props to you for dying eggs with a one year old. I decided that would be a venture that we would try when Katie is a little older. I am glad that it turned out so great though! Looks like you guys had fun. Hope you have a HAPPY EASTER! Love you guys

Happy Easter! Love those colorful eggs. I am happy (and surprised) to report that we actually made it through the egg dying process without any major spills or breaks. I guess that's probably because Sean didn't care about it long enough to stay and help. Anyway, good job guys. And I'm glad Kyrie never actually drank that nasty vinegar/dye/water. bleh!

I wanted to dye eggs this weekend, but I had nobody to do it with, so I decided that it would be too silly for me to do it alone. Your Easter eggs turned out so cute!
