easter eggs.

 Happy Monday friends!
I'm kinda behind on things I want to blog about.
It seems I can't keep up with life these days.
Le sigh.
I just uploaded a ton of photos onto the computer,
so there are some more of these photo loving posts to come.

A couple weeks ago I spent the afternoon with my nieces & nephew.
We dyed Easter eggs and made invisible lollipops. 
I love spending time with their sweet little faces.
Especially when they bring me back to my own childhood.
I'll let the pictures do the talking.

pretty girls. pretty eggs!

"like a pirate, sticky!"
*side note: when A says my name, sounds like he's saying "sticky"
he is quite adorable.
*M. A. & S.*
So excited to dunk the eggs in the colors!
And waiting patiently for the colors to appear.
home made lollipops. yum.

When I was little, we used to dye eggs each year before Easter.
Anyone else? 
Any other Easter traditions in your family?

those pictures are too sweet! i can't wait to have little neices and nephews to do things with! unfortunately, it's going to be a loooooong time until that happens. guess that means we'll just have to have another baby.. sigh :)

we dyed eggs before easter every year, as well! we're getting ready to head home to my parents house for Easter this year (Carter's first!) and I can guarantee that my mom will set up the table with lots of dye for myself at 28 years old and my brother, who's 19...

hey, some traditions are too fun to let fall by the wayside! :)

Happy monday!

aw they are TOO cute! i love dying easter eggs! and eating them. when i was little i used to love how the egg on the inside changed color too!
i live in italy now and they don't dye so i might have to find a way to do it without the sweet pas kit!

Cute! Dying easter eggs looks soooo much fun! Seriously! :D
I am so jealous that you did that! They all look so wonderful and creative and lovely!

I used to LOVE dying eggs. We usually spend Easter at the beach (we're here now!) but we haven't dyed eggs in quite some time....we may need to revive that tradition!

So fun! I want to be your niece:) They are lucky to have such a fun aunt!

Can a 26th year old still dye eggs? They look like so much fun. I wish I had a little niece or nephew I could do an Easter art project with. Have a good weekend:)

They are so, so adorable! Makes me wish my brother and SIL would hurry up and have some children!... then at least I'd have an excuse to dye eggs. :) I haven't done so in so long, and your afternoon of fun is making me crave this childhood tradition. Hope y'all had a wonderful time!

I love the glasses you used to dye those eggs-how chic! Growing up with both Christian and Greek Orthodox Easters, we usually dyed pastel AND red eggs-not to mention two giant dinners!

I have to agree with Lena, the glasses that the dye is in are so pretty! We always dyed eggs growing up and my Ma used to hide our easter baskets in crazy places so we would have to go on hunts to find them :) xo
