You know I really enjoy this tradition. It's the prep before hand I don't like. Yesterday was kind of crazy. I got my hair done in the morning...then headed to Smith's for some cookies for A's class...then went to the school to hear A read his pop-up book...then dropped the kids off at the Heusser's...so I could go visit an inactive sister in our ward (with my secretary, Heather) who wasn't there....breathe.
I then picked up the kids and came home to get ready for Easter Eggs. Star Wars Eggs! After everything was ready I could enjoy myself and take pictures of the kids having fun. I let M and F go first.
I wanted to make sure I got pictures of all of them and so dividing up the time was a good thing. They were so cute and had a lot of fun. Then K and A got to have a go at it.
We discovered that the 'wraps' needed to be in HOT water to work so K and A took turns heating water in the microwave. On A's second egg, he heated it one time too many and it EXPLODED in the microwave. Blue dye everywhere!
The funny thing was...the yoke was still in tact and was the exploding agent. It shot right out of the egg! We had a good laugh and I kept my cool. That was the amazing thing. I had blue dye all over my hand that didn't come off till the next day but I took the opportunity to take a pic. and laugh with my kids about it. What a difference that makes.
Anywho...afterwards A took some pics of me dying eggs.
