It’s time to color the eggs for Easter. We wanted to do it sooner, but Mom didn’t have time to set us up. Bailie is in charge for the first time this year. You know what that means? Lots, and I mean lots of eggs. She could eat eggs until she explodes! We each got to pick our own coloring kit too. I chose the classic, and no surprise, Bailie found one with bling!
Things were looking pretty good. Bailie got out thirty eggs, and we have five colors, so that makes six of each color. We did run into one hiccup. Bailie’s coloring package requires white rice, but don’t have any, so we decided to save that for next year, and just do classic eggs. Mom got out the dipping cups and made up the colors for us.
Next we had to start putting the eggs into the color cups to turn pretty colors. The biggest trick was not to splash the colored liquid all over the place. We can be a bit clumsy with our paws and eggs.
Bailie has done this more times than I have, and she said to leave the eggs in longer for better colors. No one told us how long, so we were just waiting and guessing.
The first five came out and looked pretty good. I wanted an up close and personal sniff to make sure they smelled like good eggs.
For some reason they have an egg smell plus something weird. I wonder if the color stuff smells odd? It would be best for me to take a sniff of the orange to check out my theory. Imagine that! The orange does smell odd, but not nothing like an orange.
We worked and worked to get all thirty eggs colored up nicely. Before getting rid of the coloring stuff, we needed to make sure we really were all done. Bailie hinted at coloring thirty more eggs, but Mom said no to that idea.
Oh boy, they sure do look great, and we get to eat them too, eventually! People have told us we can eat the eggshells, but I don’t want to try that. Bailie would, because she eats anything!
My egg crazed sister is super proud of her eggs, can you tell? I hope she saves some for Easter!
As for me, I like an egg now and then, but I’m not nuts about them. What I am, is short. I really could use a couple more inches in my legs, but I don’t think that will happen. Have you colored eggs yet this year?
