Confetti in Our Hair

Having married with someone from a different culture, I have found the need to make compromises and negotiations. Since our family is relatively young, it is easier to start new traditions, or to modify others. The Easter eggs have some elements from my wife's culture as well as my own.
Here's what we did:
1) We got some eggs and cracked a small hole on the top of the egg. Then, proceeded to take out the whites and the yolk, which would later be used for an egg bake (my wife is from the Midwest). They were washed and dried.
2) We then filled the eggs with confetti. Since my wife got the tissue paper we ended up with what she called Easter colors. I would have preferred bold colors.
3) We dipped a square of tissue paper in a mixture of Elmer's glue and water and closed the hole in the egg.
4) Tomorrow, on Easter, after our egg hunt, we will break the eggs on each other's heads, as I used to do when I was young in Mexico.
Cheers to new traditions. Salud!
