The Easter Sunday blood and gore Peeps diorama competition...

The results are in! The first ever Easter Sunday Peeps diorama competition was a raucous test of skill, creative use of trash, and how well we all know our family. Yes, that last one played a very significant role in the voting. (And I was surprised!)

Teams were formed voluntarily and had one hour to use what they could find in my craft box (and apparently around the house and garage) to create a shadow box featuring Peeps. Because we don't eat them here...we mangle them for art. Team members were not allowed to vote.

In third place: Entry number two, with two votes. Team Jeffrey, Jo-Ann, Katie, Michael, and Miriam. Also now known as the girlie, all-smiley team!

Title: Peeps!

We were told that the original idea was to make the Peeps into the Beatles. We ended up with a band of long-haired Peeps on a nicely built stage (Michael's handiwork) and an audience of rubber duckies. Yes, I had a package of rubber duckies in my craft box. Who doesn't? The guitar player up front is actually playing a miniature skate board.

Well done, losers!

In second place: Entry number three, with a total of I can't remember how many votes and they're in the trash now so we'll say four. Team Matthew and Travis.

Title: Alien abduction

Excellent use of construction paper to create a tractor beam lifting the straw-hatted, backwoods yahoo into the alien ship! This entry held up well despite a few voters' attempts to reach in and "fix" things or make the space ship "fly."

And...drumroll, please...

The WINNER of the First Ever Easter Sunday Peeps Diorama Competition at the Narciso's House IS...ddddddddddddddddddd...

Entry number one. Team Danny and Anthony. Six votes.

Title: Blood is the Best Fertilizer

Let me axe you a question.

Yes, folks. It's Easter Sunday at the Narciso house and my two oldest boys hacked off the head of one Peep and slit the other's skull open with a hatchet. Excellent use of red feathers for blood.

I'm so proud.
