Easter Egg Dyeing on Good Friday

After we polished off making the Rice Krispie Eggs, we hit the traditional six or eight dozen eggs we dye for family and friends. Some of the pics below were taken by the kids, so pardon the fuzzy quality.

It's getting easier, generally speaking, as the kids get older. It was a real bear when the only 'helpers' were a four year old Jonah and a two year old Caitlin. But we still have one demon in the group: Ginger.

Anyhow, it proceeded as normal and I will note that the kids broke only a few eggs this year, a dramatic fall-off from years past. Sadly, that left fewer for me to eat, er, dispose of.

Here's the final results. Everyone digged this 'globe' egg

Not everyone kept clean

And not everyone stayed classy

But we all had a good time!

LOL...I always love your family activity shots.

Looks like the kids got more coloring on their faces and hands than on the eggs. :D
