As usual, we kept up our annual tradition of dyeing Easter eggs with the kids in our life, a practice that dates back to well before we had children of our own. Two changes this year: because of schedule difficulties our friend Chris' kids did not attend, and for God knows what reason my nephew and oldest niece skipped the proceedings. *
Ack, make that three changes, in honor of the Trinity ;), but the last one was a good 'un. Lisa decided to mix things up a bit and make Rice Krispie Eggs dipped in chocolate.
Aside from getting it on themselves and some on the woodwork, they kept the mess to a minimum.
I think we'll repeat this project next year, but not because it was oh so successful. I think the finished product looked a little turd-like, and they were far too dense for my liking. But it's a neat idea and a crowd pleaser, and with a little practice I think they'll be yummy.
* Hey, I know egg dyeing isn't something a 14 and 12 year old *want* to do, but tough ta-ta. Half my life, if not more, is comprised of doing things that aren't high on my "Hot Dog!" list. If nothing else, the little kids look up to them and noticed their absence. *Meet your obligations*Here endeth the sermon.
