    We hid the eggs, too! They just thought it was a nice prop to have in our festive Easter pictures!

  2. Snowrider says:

    Bob Byron and Amy Misto the early years in Aunt Marney’s back yard.
    “You may have one and ONLY one egg each!”

  3. Snowrider says:

    And look, it’s a Festivus pole on the right.

  4. Raven says:

    Dude, I totally thought there was a guy hiding in that pile of logs for a minute.

  5. Joanne says:

    The most awkward thing about this picture is what appears to be a man under the cardboard in the background-that just looks freaky. Looks like a homeless man is living in their backyard.

  6. Kazz says:

    It’s a Coal Miner’s Daughter Easter! The shed in the background brings an extra degree of awkwardness.

  7. Caroline says:

    This is the first time I’ve ever said this about a picture, but I don’t see the awkward here. Our neighbors have these Easter bushes too. It’s kinda cute.

  8. Mike says:

    Two kids…same bowl used for haircut..who cares about the tree

  9. Sarah says:

    This brings back memories of our Easters when I was growing up. It’s a German custom to decorate trees with eggs for Easter. This kid seems to be enjoying it less than I did though!!

  10. Brian says:

    Nice bow tie!

  11. Donna says:

    Sorry, that is not a tree, it must be the very elusive and rare Easter Bush…

  12. Lori says:

    “kids, go stand by the easter tree, yea, the one in front of the outhouse”

  13. JJ says:

    What came first, the chicken or the bush?

  14. churros says:

    i’d never be able to find those eggs….

  15. Valerie says:

    Love the background. “Hey kids, stand in front of the rusty scrap metal pile and the tin shed and smile!”

  16. bmj2k says:

    That was the year the kids got tetanus for Easter.

  17. ConchordsFan says:

    Whoever hid those eggs did a terrible job.

  18. jnmcnally says:

    It was a tradition in our family, too – three generations

  19. Bridget says:

    My neighbors have one 3 ft from my house…What is the point of it?

  20. jkb says:

    Haha…he’s holding up bunny ears behind his sister!! – Almost missed that!

  21. LemurQueen says:

    Wellll….hmmmm…mayby they didn’t have alot of time for them to actually “hunt” for the eggs…figured it was a timesaver?

  22. Sierra says:

    This looks like it could be in my neck of the woods… right down to the storage trailer! Frightening, really. I would like to say in my own defense, I’m not from around here!

  23. Denjiro says:

    I’d say it is likely Pennsylvania. Easter decorations are pretty common. Plastic eggs in the trees, inflatable bunnies and large eggs, and pastel colored ‘Easter’ lights. The background also looks like Pennsylvania prior to spring really hitting and the plants blooming.

  24. 666 dimebag wife says:

    Is that the Easter Bunny hiding in the box behind the boy???????? Creepy.

  25. Greg McMahan says:

    I remember Easters as a kid. My parents really went all out on hiding the eggs. My dad would make sure to count them before hiding them, so he could confirm that we found them all. One year he forgot and the single egg we never found soon made itself known to all with a nose.

    My brother, sisters & I loved the challenge of finding the eggs. It was hard! My dad was also quite proud when he figured out how to tie-dye an Easter egg. They looked groovy!

  26. naenad says:

    ha! boy has ominous expression but I am afraid of that little girl. it’s hair style, chalky white dace or the outfit or all can’t decide.

  27. Eric says:

    ‘I don’t want to know what’s in that shed. I’m sure the local sheriff will find out in a few years.

  28. Paul Metzger says:

    Oh my goodness, that boy looks exactly like someone I went to school with. LOL

  29. bogie13p says:

    You really have to have a lot of confidence to happilly rock a bow-tie. If your forced into a bow-tie and not up for the challenge, it can make you pretty grumpy.

  30. nicole says:

    Hmmmm . . . I wonder where we should look first?

  31. jennifer says:

    they probably both just got yelled at because they had to go to church and dad was grumpy…oh wait, that was me.

  32. Audrey says:

    I live in Austria, and that’s a part of Easter here. We decorate Palmkätzchen (pussy willow) and other seasonal branches with beautiful handpainted eggs for decorations in the home like flower arrangement. As I am originally from the States, its a fantastic tradition that I have adopted in to my Easter celebration.

  33. Juls says:

    Everyone WILL gather around the Easter Tree and everyone WILL enjoy it or it’s off to the woodshed with you!

  34. CP says:

    Dare not hide the Easter Eggs near the creepy woodshed!

  35. Mimi says:

    This is adorable! Nothing awkward about it, just cute.

  36. IsNot says:

    Does anyone else see that pile of stuff behind them that looks sort of like a Stormtrooper is hiding in it?

  37. Heather says:

    it looks like Santa was crushed by the shed collapse in the background…

  38. Anonymous says:

    Now only if we could do that with money.

  39. Jason says:

    “ok kids, one quick picture then back in the shed!”

  40. RawkHeroin says:

    Someone get that girl 200cc of Cadbury Cream Egg Filling, STAT!

  41. lizsete says:

    At first glance I thought that was a bum in a cardboard box in the background. So I guess the tree is the awkward part instead….that is pretty random…

  42. mamasmilkman says:

    Can one say, “Children of the Corn?”

  43. MCR says:

    He’s a good egg, but one of these days, the kid in the bow tie is gonna crack.

  44. KJ says:

    Hmm…I’m guessing mom didn’t want the kids to work too hard at finding the Easter eggs? Nothing ruins Easter morning more than a kid crying, “Timmy got them all!!! I can’t find any!!!”

  45. Donna says:

    Where’s the excitement of the hunt? No wonder they’re grumpy!

  46. charmy_canuck says:

    Are you done yet mom! Can I go play and get dirty?

  47. rlabarge says:

    too funny, nothing like grumpy kid’s on easter

  48. Robin says:

    this looks like it belongs in a stephen king novel

  49. graphixgrl says:

    Hah! Thought my mom was the only freak who did the whole “Easter Tree” thing!

    • mijomy says:

      My mom totally made Easter Trees too. You know there is some embroidering thread caught between the two ends of those plastic eggs! We never had one outside though, we just pulled down a branch and dragged that sucker in the house. I wonder where it originates from.

      • binkymae says:

        It was probably invented by some mom who had a “mystery challenged” child who could not find any eggs in the grass and sat down in the grass and cried.

      • Nicola says:

        You have to look beyond Christianity for where it originates. 😉

    • carol says:

      Are you kidding me! We still love on today! There are tons of us out there!

    • Brent says:

      Is that a body in the woodpile?
