Manic Monday - Egg

MM Headquarters ~ Previous MMs
This Week's Theme: Egg

We had lots of fun coloring eggs for our big Easter Egg Hunt. Two of my nieces joined in on the fun. The kids had a great time, and surprisingly there wasn't as much of a mess as I thought there would be with a couple of two year olds and two five year olds. Here are a few photos of the eggs and the fun! I hope you all had a great Easter and are enjoying a wonderful Monday.
Shelby with her award winning smile and prize winning orange egg.
Tyler had his eggs dunked in the dye. He still has green fingers today.
The finished product getting finalized with stickers.

Now, does anybody have any good egg salad recipes that we can use in all of these eggs?!
I hope that you have a great Manic Monday.

Hello Tish,
Stopping by to wish you a belated Easter. Hope you and your family had a lovely day. It looks from the posts you all had a blast. :o)

They look like they had a wonderful time!

I love deviled eggs, too, but alas we had no colored eggs at all - never mind leftover ones!

Have a terrific Manic Monday!

Looks like a whole lot of fun dying and decorating those eggs.
Egg salad & egg sandwich for the whole week!! :P

Looks like a great time was had by all... and like you'll be eating deviled eggs and egg salad for some time now, lol. I think those blue eggs are eggstreamly beautiful.

Happy Easter Manic Monday

Gattina said...

Ah that reminds me sweet souvenirs when we colored eggs together. Now I buy them already colored we are only the two of us, lol!

We've never done the whole egg coloring thing with the kids and now I'm sorry we didn't. I think it's going to be part of our next spring tradition, next year. These pictures are adorable.

Sanni said...

Colored eggs with stickers... I love the idea. As far as I can remember now, after reading, my mom and I used to put stickers on the colored eggs, too - which I totally forgot.

Thank you so much for bringing back the memories and for sharing these lovely family photos!

Happy Easter! How nice to see the kids having fun coloring and decorating the Easter eggs.

Mo said...

I always loved that vinegary smell of coloring eggs!
I would vote for deviled eggs with all those, but a good egg salad sounds yummy, too! The best egg salad I ever made - I cut the eggs in half, and just diced the whites. Then mashed the egg yolks with mayo and stone ground mustard that had a bit of horseradish in it. Mmmmmm....

Happy Manic Monday!

Happy MM! Those photos captured the happiness of the youngsters engaged in that annual Easter tradition. Well done...

As usual, my response this week to the MM meme takes Mo's word to a different place that is unique to the African American culture.

peace, Villager

Coloring eggs - one of the truly great photo opps of the year! Tyler and Shelby look like they are having a great time. And I don't see that much of a mess. How did you manage that?!
