How to dye Easter eggs

Once upon a time, there was an adorable little boy named William. We know his name was William because, in his picture, his apron had "William" clearly printed across the front. We also know that he was adorable because his picture clearly showed that, too.

One day, William asked his mommy and his grandmother to help him dye Easter Eggs. They were more than happy to oblige. His mommy was even willing to slosh vinegar all over her kitchen while she attempted to mix up the little cups of dye. AND she was willing to risk giving everyone salmonella poisoning by hard boiling eggs by herself for only the second time in her life for this little endeavor.

Hmm. Maybe that's why she looks so crazy in this picture. The eggs got to her.

Luckily, the adorable little boy's grandmother was there to help.

And lo! The little boy named William and his mommy and grandmother ended up with a whole bunch of freshly dyed Easter Eggs! And they didn't break a single one.

Voila! The finished product. The dirty dozen.

And they all lived happily ever after...but they ate vegetable soup for dinner, not eggs.

The End.

Way too cute! I'm not going to attempt this year with Yago, but next year, Yago will have to get some pointers from William!

OK, when did William have his hard boiled egg with 'bread & jam' like his mom used to eat when she was reading BREAD & JAM FOR FRANCIS?
I love the pictures! Love, Moma Judi PS Do you have a copy of that old book? It may be out of print!

That hat is TOO cute. Where ever did you find it? Joe laughs at me every year as I have to break out a cookbook to remember how to properly hard boil eggs being such the chef that I am. LOL! Happy Easter!

The duck hat came from one of Diane's trips to the local Hallmark store. It is hilariously cute. I need to remember to take it with us to the zoo to the egg hunt tomorrow. Hey, it's supposed to be can keep his head warm...
