We have come so far from the old fizzy PAAS get a green egg, you had to soak it for three hours. As a kid myself, we had four kids dying eggs so we each got three. Within the first 20 seconds, the brothers have spilt the purple. Within two minutes, the little sister drank the yellow cup.

My daughter had hours and spent a long time on each of these little jewels. No fighting, no crying. Like I promised myself 35 years-ago. Did you ever say to yourself,
"When I have kids....."? Well, I make sure to keep all of those promises. (except for the one about candy bars...that one I don't keep!)

  1. Those are nice vibrant colors. It looks like your daughter had fun.

    Happy Easter to you and your family!

  2. Sissy, is that egg with whiskers actually dyed Barbie-Pink? Only a cute little girl can get away with that!

  3. They sure are bright. The last time I dyed eggs we were still using PAAS. I thought about doing it with the grandkids this year and decided to wait another year, my two 4 yr olds are good at making a mess. Nikki told me today that they are putting glitter on theirs. I think your painted cuties will be better when you actually go to eat them.

    Have a Happy Easter!

  4. I, too, have not dyed eggs since the orginal PAAS kits. What fun to do it so creatively now. I love Easter eggs, and used to have several of those panoramic sugar ones till the mice ate them. Pretty while they lasted!

  5. Those eggs look so pretty, sounds like you had a wonderful time decorating them - have a good Easter with your family.

  6. I'm glad you remember those promises you made yourself. You are making memories your daughter will carry with her over her lifetime.

  7. Those eggs are so beautifully bright and cheerful. Looks like your daughter had a wonderful time.
    It's good to not keep the candy bar promise :)
