A Blessed Easter Week to you All!

Xhristos Anesti! (Christ is risen!)
Alithos Anesti! (Truly He is risen!)

The Christian Orthodox greeting and response that is spoken during the 40 days following Easter.



Our Easter weekend was quite busy with the whole family getting in on the activities. As you see, daughter Eleni had some help with the red velvet egg:



But everyone got in the act, one way or another:

Although for Orthodox Christians, the Easter Egg is traditionally red, the children participated in the more American approach to the egg dyeing!



Even to the point of stuffing plastic eggs with candy.



While Anna Maria is busy hoping to meet a deadline with her chocolate lollipop
quilt!
