I was amazed at the speed that 36 hard boiled eggs were colored at our house! Really much less than ten minutes and there were no eggs left white. Nat was very serious about the whole thing and had her technique perfected. The boys thought it was pretty cool that their hands looked "zombie-ish and bloody" after being stained. And how in the world did we end up with not enough eggs to make deviled eggs? Sneaky kids kept sneaking them before I could.
