Annual Easter Egg Decorating Contest

First for a gratuitous harvest photo...

and a disturbing find at our feeder (cowbird)...
Our family has had an annual Easter Egg Decorating Contest since I was a little girl. You can see past eggs here and here. Here are the 2011 entries:
My little cousin Cammy's Nemo:

My favorite by far -- Scott's Frankenstein w/operating table.

Clara's first ever egg (with a little assistance from mommy):

Aunt Penny's scuba divers

My mummy:

My father-in-law's "little girl":

My cousin Caleb's chicken and worm:

My mother-in-law's "Clara the Fashionista" - best in show!

My cousin Erin Raye's sheep and shepherd:

Which is your favorite?

LOL!!!! I love the annual Easter Egg contest!!! Always so creative!!! I didn't see any text...so I'm not sure which one Scott's was. But I'm pretty sure it was one of the best.

I just noticed that you won for the photo contest, and also got an hon mention! That is awesome. Your photos were really great. You deserve it!

BTW...my brother is a district court judge now...crazy!

Hey DP! Yeah I accidentally published this without text! Hilarious that you remembered Scott's are always the best/funniest. I know some people must think it's weird we'd make monster-themed eggs, but whatever!

That is crazy about your brother! That didn't take long at all!!

First I have to say I LOVE your new header! What a cute picture. I also saw that Scott is staying home with Clara now. Glad that things were able to work out that way. We did creative work schedules so my husband worked shorter hours when I went back to work.
The eggs are all cute. I love the scuba divers and your mummy.

I also really dig your mummy, but I think my favorites are Clara the Carrot and the scuba divers. Y'all are so creative!

Got to be Scott's is my favorite. I think I recall his being cool last year too.

I couldn't pick a favorite. They are all so cute!

Your new header is so adorable and so creative and so perfect! You did a great job, and Clara is so cooperative. She must already be showing signs of being a star. :)
