I found these weird weird egg looking things in my yard. One of them looks quite "dead"(that's the one with the hole in it), the other looks like something could still come out of it.

Looks like an oak gall, also called an oak apple, to me. Any red oaks nearby where you were?
Here's a quick link on it...
