Happy Easter

Happy Easter! This was our first year coloring Easter eggs. I found some pretty easy natural recipes online: water, vinegar, red cabbage (to make blue) and water, vinegar, tumeric (to make yellow). Bonus green - mixing the blue and yellow :)

We cooked up the dye the day before Easter and then let the eggs steep in the dye in the fridge overnight.

Six happy eggs, sitting in their jars:

Tada!  An Easter surprise:

The colors came out quite vibrantly, since they sat in the dye so long.  E checked them periodically on Saturday, and they weren't nearly as saturated.

Blue was his favorite.

Look, no hands!  Miss Muffin has been balancing herself without holding on to anything for a couple of weeks now.  I've seen her consider walking once, but decide against it.  She's quite proficient at squatting from standing down to crawling now.  And she's started putting things in to containers, instead of just taking them out!
