With all the excitement of the four of us in a room, the two girls calling, "Aunt Rita", "Grandma", "Aunt Ronda", "Grandma"... it can get confusing.
So, on these special occasions -- the girls call us "Grant Rita"and "Grant Ronda". (a combination of Grandma and Aunt -- clever, eh?)
On this day -- our plan was to do one of those goofy craft projects off Facebook (or was it Pinterest?). You wrap an egg in an old silk tie -- boil it -- and the egg takes on the color from the tie.
What could go wrong, eh??
|A goofy picture of Lilly -- but these are the two silk ties we had to work with. We cut them in pieces, soaked them in water, and the girls wrapped them around the raw eggs...|
|Then, they wrapped white strips of t-shirt fabric around them...and tied the whole show with string...|
|Into a pot of boiling vinegar water for 30 minutes...|
|Grant Ronda...we were waiting for the water to boil...|
|THEN THIS HAPPENED...|
|It was a huge success.|
