Eggs








We learned several things from our adventure:

1. check the cabinet to see if you have vinegar BEFORE you start dyeing eggs.
2. rice vinegar can be used as a substitute, but the smell makes you think twice before using it.
3. rubber bands are fun and easy to use for designs.
4. using a cloth towel to clean up spilled red dye is not a good idea.
5. egg dye does not wash out.

  1. Ugh, I have forgotten vinegar before! You did a great job with the pictures. I should have had the boys dye the eggs during the day for better lighting. It was messy and fun though! Justin's hands are still green. I got your message, I am sorry I didn't call your back. It was great to hear your voice. I was pretty bad at not returning any calls to anyone this weekend. I was a hermit. I don't mean to be that way. Love you lots! :) xoxoxo

    We used rubberbands this year, too. Your photographs are beautiful. You've definitely got an eye for photography. And as for your comment RE: my recent breastfeeding post, Jesus sure was breastfed and it's inexcusable to make nursing moms feel guilty/shameful in church of all places!
