I almost laid an egg when I saw all the ridiculously awesome egg design on pinterest. The circus strongman egg cracked me up. Last year I felt like such an egghead when I assumed Samantha would be as excited as me about decorating eggs (she was only 1 1/2!). Her attention was on it for a span of two seconds before she was done. She got frustrated anytime I tried to encourage her to keep decorating so instead of egg-ing her on I just let her be. This year I decided to have my own decorating party. On Fry-day I had my solo decorating session after I put the kidlets to bed. With visions of a good egg in my head I tried to create something eggstra special. At first my brain felt a bit scrambled coming up with some original content, but eventually things were over easy. All in all I’m pretty pleased with the outcome. We will still decorate eggs with Samantha right before the big hunt, but I’m glad I got to humor my childhood love for decorating eggs too! It was definitely egg-cellent ;)

All you need are permanent markers, eggs and a touch of whimsy. Enjoy!

  13. Sweet! I love the strong man and the carrots. Our hens are laying a dozen eggs a day so we’re up to our ears in them. I may have to get out some markers. Thanks for the fun inspiration! :)
