egg smack down!


larissa read about a tradition (not sure which culture its from) where people blow out eggs, fill them with confetti, and smash them on each other's heads. one of the eggs is filled with glitter and whoever's head the glitter egg is cracked on, is the winner!
this was the funnest game ive ever played and will certainly be a browne family tradition. i think it would be fun to spice things up even more and fill them with something crazy like paint and have one with the raw egg! muwahahah!
ellie was the only one who shed a tear or two when daddy cracked the egg on her head, but im sure by next year she will have forgotten all about it and be excited to do it again :)

here are some pics rikki took of our crazy shenanigans






we have a winner!





the aftermath that had to be cleaned in a very special way...



on a side note and just for memories sake: i had to borrow my mom's pants because of an accident i had on the way to their house. no, not that kind of accident! in the car i was holding the ham, which was delicious by the way, and as we turned some corners, the juicy yumminess leaked out and soaked my skirt enough that as i walked up to the front door, my skirt literally slapped against my legs. i smelled of ham and cinnamon the rest of the day. yummy.

you guys are too funny- I must say I had a neighbor(growing up) who did this same thing- delighted in cracking the same type of eggs on our heads- not at Easter tho'
I love your expressions Lisa ;)

I'm not sure which I love better, the cracked eggs or the shop-vac cleanup! What a great idea. We might have to try that one next year!

Looks like a lot of fun!! In Brazil they smash raw eggs on peoples' heads for their birthdays, haha. Luckily I escaped this tradition. But that looks like fun! Might have to try it out!

They do that over here with glitter and confetti. By the way, were those Magnum bars you had? They are totally a British brand! How did you get those? My mother-in-law has been salivating over those since she visited here and has trying to get some back in the States forever!
