Eggstra Special Eggs

This was my first Easter with Greg's family... weird since it's been almost 7 years. I had no idea what fun I as in for.

Things started off typical - enjoying brunch together, and then talks of dying Easter eggs. Sounded fun!

Noah was first to start dying his eggs. Very typical fashion - dunk, soak, done! Then the trouble began...

A ton of though was being put into everyone's eggs. Not only was dye available for decorating purposes, but crayons, candles (for wax), paint brushes, Q-tips, glitter, and toothpicks were brought out. So unlike any egg-dying experience I've ever had. Of course, being a craft lover, I jumped at the chance to explore my creative side.

Here are a few of the results...

A cupcake egg (with pink frosting and sprinkles)

Humpty Dumpty post-fall, as well as a few abstract pieces (by Greg)

A chick, a strawberry with a worm eating it...

A very surprised egg...

A globe... made dimensional with wax. (Everyone picked on Mike that this wasn't spacially accurate. Poor Mike.)

A hot air balloon complete with people (Uncle Will had fun!)

And finally, everyone's finished products. Fifty nine eggs in all!

Happy Easter!
