to dye or not to dye

We still dye eggs at mom's house when we are there for Easter. Yes the bunny still hides them Easter morning and yes we still take them for a small after church egg hunt, but it is more like an art activity. This year it involved dye, a wax crayon and rubber bands.
A dozen never seems like enough!

We still dye eggs, too, with the white crayon and all. It's good stuff.

For the Easter egg hunts at school and church, they use plastic eggs filled with candy. Which is great but I love the old-fashioned dyed eggs.

Missed you this weekend!

We have 3 egg dying kits in our pantry yet have never dyed eggs! My poor, denied kids. I hate the smell of the eggs and the vinegar, so I have no motivation to dye them, plus no one eats hard-boiled eggs here either. I suppose if the kids requested this activity we'd do it, but since they don't we don't end up doing it.

THERE IS NOTHING IN THE WORLD LIKE TRADITION...IN SUCH A FAST CHANGING WORLD, WHAT A WONDERFUL WAY TO STAY GROUNDED.. THE OLDER YOU GET, THE MORE IT MATTERS. MODERN IS TODAY, WHAT ABOUT YESTERDAY? GOOD FOR YOU AND MORE IMPORTANT, SO GOOD FOR CARLY..YOU AND KENNY ARE SUCH WONDERFUL PARENTS, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

We dye. I can't wait until the girlies are a little older and it becomes more of an art project and not just see who can dye the most first. btw...this year we did 42 eggs.
