Happy Easter 2014!

 I think it is a wonderful Spring time event marking all good in our life. When I was a kid I used to love all the preparations like coloring and painting eggs and baking traditional Orthodox Easter cakes called "Paska". My Mom also decided to bake them herself this year, and I would like so much to try again one of these tasty creations. 
What about me? I am kind of limited this year with just 10 eggs colored and decorated with lovely stickers which I still have from the special Easter decoration sets. Initially I boiled 12.. but I don't know why I always end up with 2-3 eggs completely destroyed. So even remaining ones are not perfect, but still I have Easter eggs in India!!! Yey! So today we will say each other phrases "Hristos Voskrese" - "Voistinu Voskrese" (Christ has Risen!) and exchange kisses into cheeks three times (I like doing it with my D)) as per the Russian tradition, and may be will have Egg game.
A lovely Easter poem father sent in the sms as I am writing this post (in Russian):
Ты яичко золотое на ладошку положи,
И на ушко тихо Богу жизнь свою всю расскажи.
Он поймет и не осудит, и подскажет на перед:
Где соломинку подбросит,
Где на ушко что шепнет.
Лучик солнца шлет с небес:
Радуйся, Христос Воскрес!

Happy Easter to all! Enjoy your day and be happy!

  3. I love to decorate eggs but I have always been sad when they have to be peeled. So last year I started blowing out all the eggs I wanted to decorate so that I could save them. This year I found dyeable plastic eggs that are also hollow inside. The possibilities are endless with those!

    1. Exactly the same here! :) But you are so inventive! We don't have plastic eggs here, yet. I can imagine how creative you can get with their decoration.

  12. Your eggs look beautiful. I, too, found myself missing my grandma a lot this time of year. She really enjoyed the cooking and the decorating and the baking (and I enjoyed the eating). The Little Princess, my Piano Man and I mostly watched movies and played cards. They were trying not to eat too much candy in front of me or complicated foods (because my tooth still bothering me).
