Eggs, Eggs and More Eggs!

On Saturday, we dyed a few eggs for Easter! It was such a nice afternoon that we took the egg dying outside. I was all ready for the fun to begin...let's get this party started!
Daddy helped me put the eggs in the dye. I was very careful this year and took my time. I must be growing up, huh?

I put this one in all by myself. I totally got the hang of it right away.

I had to watch the eggs while they were in the cups. I think it makes them dye faster.

Here I am with one of my first eggs as it came out of the dye. Beautiful!

I had a bit of trouble keeping the eggs in the dye, though. I had to check on them a lot. Nope, this blue one needs to stay in longer. Boy this egg dying takes patience.

OK, wait one second here. No one told me may hands would get dirty during this process. Yikes!


Daddy's hands got dirty, too.

Just a few more eggs to go. I was so proud of this blue one.

Will you look at those eggs! Not bad for a three-year-old.

Here are Mommy's boys with their finished eggs. Very nice!

I thought I'd leave you with a little video of my dying techniques. At least I didn't throw the eggs into the dye this year.


So I guess I'm finally ready for the Easter Bunny to come...oh, boy! Stay tuned for more super Easter adventures...
