Dying Easter Eggs

I need to get better at getting out my actual camera and learning how to use it, and take more pictures of everything!  

Anyways, we got a real dumping of snow this week and I knew we wouldn't be venturing out so we dyed some Easter eggs.  I had previously thought we would try using natural dyes, and then thought it wouldn't be worth the mess to do it at all, but then grabbed a kit at the store to fill our snow day. 

 It actually went a lot better than I had thought it would, which basically means that it entertained the boys for longer than 5 minutes and the mess made was minimal (besides the fingers that are still green from the dye).  
 Rai especially enjoyed it and made sure that there was always at least an egg in each of the cups, he just kept dropping them in.  He couldn't have cared less about the actual colors of the eggs.  I just kept pulling the eggs out of the cups, and he would put them in a new one. 
 Tracen found out a few times just how fragile the eggs are, and in the end they all mostly ended up cracked.  
Poor guy was under the weather and had a fever and headache.  

Now our fridge smells like eggs, and Tracen keeps telling me that sometimes his farts smell like that and he does not like that smell hahaha.

I'm dying at Tracen's comment too! When we were doing our eggs, Thea said something similar.. she goes "Dad, did I toot?? Because it sure smells like I did..." haha I swear that Thea and Tracen are the same kid. I think they're soul mates.
