Glitter & Tie Dye Eggs & A Lost Tooth.....

What a fun afternoon. Lexi made six tie dye eggs and six glittered eggs. She had so much fun dyeing her eggs for Easter.



Here are her beautiful eggs settled in one of her pretty baskets.
Lexi also lost one of her back molars (excuse her dyed fingers...lol). Lexi and Stella are so excited that the tooth fairy will be coming to visit. I'll let you know when we get up what the tooth fairy left. (I snuck a peek and she got 5 gold dollars...WOOHOO!)
Hope you are having a great Friday. On Saturday Lexi and Stella are going on an Easter Egg hunt. What fun!!

Oh how cute!! We are SO BEHIND this year..i havent even BOILED the eggs yet....believe it or not my 17 year old LOVES to decorate the eggs funky every year...the 18 year old just eats them :-) Happy Easter!

The eggs are so cute! Wow, Lexi got a good tooth fairy gift! She is so pretty. I know you will all have a fun egg hunt. Stella is having a ball, by the way. Take care. Hope the smoke goes away fast. Maybe these winds will blow it away, of course, the fires have to be put completely out.

Good Morning Miz Darlene,
I sure miss the annual decorating of the Easter eggs, it's been years since we've done that in our home. How sweet to share yours with us, Lexi is having a great time! And what a generous Toothfairy y'all have *smiles* Have a wonderfully blessed Easter weekend!

Sue said...

Lexi looks like she is having a great time dying the eggs. I remember those days with my two children. Now, I am enjoying it again with my grandchildren. Have a wonderful Easter with your family (and Stella)!

Smilingsal said...

Which did Lexi prefer- Tie dye or glitter? I noticed that Stella was helping.

$5 for a back tooth! Stand back, I'm going toothless!

Heather said...

how fun! I bet Stella is loving dyeing eggs. We're going to an egg hunt tomorrow too. Can't wait to see your pictures! Yay for the tooth fairy coming to visit too. Boy Stella sure did pick a great time to visit with you two!

Ruth Ann said...

Hi Darlene! Cute photos! I can't wait to color eggs with my boys tonight! I thought of you the other day while watching tv. There is a website for moms called: "Twilight Moms!" It's at twighlightmoms.com
Thought you'd be interested! Have a great day!

Have a Happy Easter!

Aleta said...

My friends came over to help me make Easter Eggs. I was smiling looking at the pictures here, because that's what we looked like - adults but kids at heart! I think your daughter's eggs came out better than ours!

Liz said...

Hope you have a great Easter weekend!
Hugs,

She's got a beautiful smile. I know the price of a tooth has gone up with the Tooth Fairy and hopefully you won't have to pay for braces someday...I bought 3 sets!!!

Have a wonderful weekend and a blessed Easter!

I can NOT wait to dye Easter eggs!! I love the ones Lexi made...the glitter ones are so pretty! Isaiah isn't big on glitter...Transformers shrink wrap is more his style. ☺

Wow, five gold dollars for a tooth! That's awesome! I've been wondering what teeth go for these days.

Hope you have a fabulous Friday!!

Lana said...

Have fun at the Easter egg hunt! We are going to one tomorrow, too!

I used to LOVE decorating eggs! What fun!

Eloise said...

Such fun! I'm so glad you and Lexi enjoy your Easter traditions so.

How is your mother?

Laura said...

I used to love dying eggs when I was young! And I'm sure I didn't get that kind of cash for my teeth! Stella isn't going to want to ever leave!

Sandy Toes said...

Lexi is so pretty! Man her eggs turned out really pretty. We colored our eggs today too but I think they are only pretty to me the mom...maybe in a few years ours will look as good as Lexi's!

Happy Easter!

~The Robin's Nest~ said...

I have a feeling Stella may not want to leave you guys... It looks like she has a new best friend in Lexi!

Lexi did an amazing job on her eggs!

Happy Easter dear friend,

Robin~♥

jeanne said...

Darlene, thank you for your sweet comment about my post today. Lexi and Stella had a fine time dying eggs together. I had to dye eggs too. My cousin helped. It is not as much fun without the children involved. Anyway I will post them tomorrow. I believe Lexi and Stella will go shopping after the tooth fairy comes.

Wishing you and your family a wonderful Easter.

Hugs...Jeanne

Jules from "The Roost" said...

My girls have always enjoyed dying Easter eggs...it's our tradition! This year will be no different! Lexi looks so cute and her eggs turned out well! She really racked it in with losing a tooth!

I hope you and your family have a blessed Easter!

Shelia said...

Hi Darlene! Oh, how cute! Lexie and her tooth. Hope she didn't have any pain with it coming out! I've had so much dental pain through my life - I get a few chill bumps when I see teeth!:)
I'll be waiting with bells on! ;)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Cathy Cobblestone said...

What a cute lil' story about the egg hunt - Lexi is so cute - I know she had a great time decorating those eggs too. And how funny, my lil' boy lost a tooth Sat. night - so the Easter bunny and the tooth fairy all came - boy did he have a "big" morning.

Have a blessed day! Cathy

Carol said...
