Egg Monsters

I tell ya what, there is something about decorating eggs that is so thoroughly exciting, so completely thrilling to my children that only threatening them with the loss of decorating privileges keeps them from plunging their hands into the dye or doing a little taste testing of the different colors.

Then again, maybe I should let them taste it, I'm sure the vinegar would be far less appealing then they believe.

Well, one would hope. But there's no guarantees when it comes to kids.


Once all the eggs were dyed to every one's satisfaction, next came the decorating!

I really was impressed with everyone's creativity.

Especially hubby. I didn't know he had it in him! Who would of thought his engineering brain could conger up such impressive right-brained thinking!

He doesn't realize it yet, but he just dug himself a hole with mother's day, our anniversary, and my birthday all coming up here in the next few months.

Now that I know the right side of his brain actually works, I had better be impressed. MWAH HA HA HA!!!

Is it just me, or does this look incredibly similar to a family photo?

Well, minus a few a kids. Don't go getting any crazy ideas now, I'm not sure how many more pregnancies I can handle! My sanity is questionable as it is.

They were so proud.


Yup, family photo if I've ever seen one.

Even hubby took this picture of a couple of the eggs we made, saying this was indeed us.

Strangely, this explains a lot about our marriage.

Amanda Joy said...

These tunred out great! I need to do something like this with my kids. I also want to try making the dinosaur eggs, where you crack the shell, then dye it.

Sue said...

Eggs-ellent coloring!

But the decorating takes the cake...

(And the monster faces win it all!!)

Very cute! I refrained from letting Chloee decorate very many eggs, I didn't think anyone would eat them. Next thing you know, I am being asked to boil more eggs Sunday afternoon.

Looks like your kids had a blast!

Amy said...

Hahaha! You're right, it does look like a family photo. Cracks me up. No pun intended.

Looks like you had fun!! And they have dye-free hands... how the heck did you pull that one off?

housewife said...

kids will always surprise you...our girl thought the vinegar was delectable...so much that just dipping her fingers wasn't enough..she spooned it in!

Stef said...

Okay, those are some of the cutest eggs I have ever seen. Where did you get that idea?? Awesome!

Garden of Egan said...

It looks like a ton of fun.
Totally amazing decorating!
Your kids really could go into business for themselves!

Mama Smith said...

Someday...these pictures will bring back all the memories of such events...and they will laugh over how much fun it was...LOVE IT!

Amy - Daddy did all the dying, the kids did all the decorating!

Stef - Surprisingly, it was just an egg decorating kit from Walmart!

Lara said...

How fun! The monster kit is one I'll have to look for next year.

Of course, I was a horrible mother this year and we did not dye eggs. Oops.
