Commencement of "Egg Wars" 2010

The St.Hilaire family has a tradition of bumping their Easter eggs together to see which ones get cracked. We did this last year, for our first Easter together. I did take pictures of it but never blogged about it because I think I was pretty distracted in preparing for John's birth.

Here's how it works:

1. Last night we painted our Easter eggs - all of them have a family member's name on them and they represent that person.
2. Each person uses their egg (since it is just me and Andrew, we will play for the other people we chose to represent).
3. You hold the eggs facing each other. One person goes first and taps their egg against the other person's egg (begin by doing nose to nose).
4. The person with the cracked egg turns the egg around to the other end and they tap that end to the other person's egg.
5. If both sides of your egg get cracked, the you are out and you punish your loser egg by devouring it with a dash of salt and pepper!
6. The winner goes on to challenge the other eggs.
Each day, we will tap eggs until we have two loser eggs (so we can each eat one for breakfast).

Here are the contestants: Mom, Dad, John, Grandma St.O, Grandpa St.O, Grandma St.H, Grandpa St.H, Uncle Lou, Aunt Jenna, Uncle Aaron, Jesus, and Dymphna.

Today, the challengers were "Mom" (me) and "Dad" (Andrew):

Round one - nose to nose - "Mom" tapped "Dad" - and the winner was "Dad"!!!
Round two - bottom to nose - "Dad" tapped "Mom" - and the winner was "Dad" again!!!

Poor "Mom":
Today's winner is "Dad" - he will go on tomorrow to challenge "John"!

This just in: "Dymphna" has been disqualified due to a premature crack in her shell, thus our breakfast this morning was "Dymphna" and "Mom."

Who will win? Who will be the Champion Egg for 2010??
Tune in tomorrow for more results!


  1. I'm not sure how I feel about this. Is this you're not so subtle way to tell us that we're all a little cracked :P

  2. This game is so cute!

  3. Aaron - you can interpret it however you want! ;)

  4. its either the 3- Johnny the organist, Jesus or Mr. St Hilaire ( i'm impartial because he sent me all that fan mail at WWU.)

  5. Don't you think Jesus has to win? What a fun tradition. :)
