Easter Egg Decorating

On Sunday morning, we decorated Easter Eggs.  The girls had so much fun and it went a lot smoother then last year :)
I had read on pinterest that you could hard boil your eggs in the oven.  So I gave it a try.  You set the eggs in a muffin tin and stick in the oven for 30 minutes at 325 (I think that was the temp).  Of the 12 eggs, only 1 broke in the muffin tin but I then broke 2 more moving from the muffin tin to the ice bath.  They seemed to turn out ok.  The broken eggs I used to make egg salad sandwiches and they tasted just fine. 
Greg and Finley making dye with vinegar and food colouring.  Finley picked pink and purple and Penelope picked yellow and blue.
The 10 minutes we had to wait to dye the egg felt like an eternity
More waiting….
Penelope was so proud of her eggs!!
After the girls dyed one of the eggs, Greg got out white crayons for them to draw on the egg with and then re dipped them in another colour
Finley quite enjoyed this
Penelope needed help from daddy
