Eggcellent

This past weekend I had the honor of joining my boyfriend’s long standing egg decorating tradition.  This tradition goes back to 1987 and the egg decorating is taken very seriously.  This is a great time to visit with others and enjoy food and beverage but in all reality the focus is on the eggs.  All the needed materials are provided yet guests show up with some of their own “secret” supplies to enhance their eggs.  All jovial comments aside, this is a very serious operation.

When all was said and done, we had 62 Eggcellent Specimens.  Represented, among those eggs were Winnie the Pooh, Mike Wazowski, Tazmanian Devil, Guiness, Lord of the Eggs, Olaf (Frozen), and Mickey Mouse, just to name a few.

After all was said and done, the next day we played hide-and-seek with the eggs before sitting down for our Easter Meal.
