Happy Easter!!!

Hope everyone had a happy Easter!

I sure did. The Sister and I dyed Easter eggs, for the first time since childhood. See, here they are:

We got the Paas Tie Dye Easter egg kit. Aren't they all cool and psychedelic?

I just went to the Paas website and realized that they have about ONE HUNDRED different types of kits.

Which prompts this tirade from this old woman who hasn't dyed Easter eggs since the late 1980s..

When I was a kid, we didn't have Chalked up and Sand Blast and Flower Power and Stencil and Glitter Easter Egg dying kits!! We got one package with 3 tablets - red, blue and yellow!

There wasn't green, or purple, or fuchsia or orange or any of these other new-fangled colors they make for the kids now! If we wanted green or purple or orange, we learned what colors to put together to make them! And if we dumped all three colors together we got an egg that was a freaky gray color! And all of our friends laughed at us!

And we got the stuff all over our fingers! We had to put vinegar in the cup, and wait 10 minutes for the color to set. There was no fast-acting tablet that gave you instant results. If you didn't wait long enough, the stuff got all over your fingers and your mom yelled at you for staining the dining room table! Those crazy kids today don't know how good they have it..

And that's the way it was! And we liked it!

One thing didn't change from childhood, though. We peeled the eggs tonight after dying them, and we sure had some freaky stained-looking deviled eggs for dinner.
