When we dye eggs any number of tools, appliances and media come to the dining table...
Geoff enjoys his three year tradition of fixing an egg to his drill.
Alex relies on pencils and markers...
He gets an Iron tough egg.
It took a few tries before Geoff remembered that his successful method involved hot glue... just like our gingerbread houses!
William patiently added a fractal pattern to his egg.
Max, a focused artist, began with concentric squares on the top of the egg, that morphed into concentric circles on the other end. Time to re-introduce him to Escher.
This year I made fabric eggs.
And for breakfast we had hencakes.
Then finally I got around to painting an egg. Gee. What inspired me?
Once Geoff attaches the egg, he lets the drill spin and brings out his Sharpie collection...
In motion, the second black stripe.
Three stripes and your out!
I'm so punny.
Not to be confused with puny.
I am not puny.
Here is Alex's striped egg.
We colored 27 eggs this year. It's the first time I bought eggs in a long time.
Our backyard eggs come pre-dyed.
Maria could not wait to find what the Easter Bunny left, and just outside the front door were four baskets with our family Spring traditions... new underwear, a chocolate bunny, and both Trader Joe's Fruit Leathers and their dye-free lollipops! (God bless them) After making certain that Maria's fingers were not broken when they were smashed in the closet door, we gathered all goodies, children, roasted potatoes and an ice pack and headed for Tutu's house!
