Happy Easter - Corry Style

A few years back the Corry's (My husband's side of the family) created what came to be known as the Eggstravaganza".  Now, it is a yearly tradition loved and looked forward to by all.  Here's a peek into it :)

It starts out with a massive egg dying party.  We are talking dozens upon dozens of eggs.  Everyone gets to die 6 eggs each and make them as creative as they want.  This year, Jacob (I have ever mentioned my husband's name here before??) and I decided to show our true colors in our eggs.


He opted for his alma-mater, and of course, he is wearing the matching t-shirt.

I on the other hand, opted for my little passion.  One  "I love Quilting" egg, and one Mod-Podge-esk fabric flower egg.  That little egg has 7 different fabric lines on it :)  I thought it was just so cute, and actually quite fun to make ;)  

Once all the eggs are dyed we begin the Extravaganza .  Oh ya, did I mention that the Extravaganza is an egg spinning contest.  Good Times!!!! .  We break into the kids group and the adult group.  The kids started this year and we began with the Royal Rumble!!! (pictured below)  Everyone spins at the same time to be assigned seats for the official Double Elimination tournament.  With the seating assigned we move onto the tournament with head to head battles.  (which I did not get any pictures of because Josie was sad :).  In the end, one emerges victorious!!!

After the kids are done it's on to the adults.  Here are the eggs in the Adult Royal Rumble!!!  Can you spot my fabulous Fabric egg??

And here are all the adults down on hands and knees watching their eggs spin in the Royal Rumble.  Isn't it just awesome how we can be kids all over again!!  I love it!!!  I didn't go far in the Adult tournament but no matter, like we tell the kids, all that matters is that you have a good time :)  And we all had a great time!!!

  7. How fun! and tell your hubby GO COUGS! :P
    I love your egg tradition. We have one using the plastic eggs. After all the candy is out and baskets cleaned up, we have our annual Egg Wars where the kids and their dad chase each other around the house throwing the eggs at each other. It is hilarious!
