All Things Orthodox Easter.

What happens when you are so busy that you don't have time to blog?? Yeah, you get Horribly Backed Up. So here comes a purge of posts. And they will cover the last two-ish weeks. We had so much scheduled over those days that I feel like I can hear a collective sigh of relief from my hard drive as I upload these pictures.

The biggest thing that occurred over Spring Break was, of course, Alex turning ten. WoW. Double Digits, dude. So we celebrated the occurance over and over again.

On his actual Birth Day Date, he woke up to Birthday Pancakes. Yes, folks, those are As. I know, I can hear the claps and whistles now. Pretty amazing what a little pancake batter in a squeeze bottle will do??

And for most Orthodox Christians that was also Holy Saturday. So, we rolled up our sleeves and colored eggs.

That is always quite a process for us. But this year there was no accidental red dye spillage. In fact, we contained the mess quite well.

And I got to wrap myself in a new apron. I do love aprons and my bestest on-line friend sent me this marvelous one. It matches my Mommy Juice cup. And it's black and white and pink. What more could I ask for, seriously?? What a wonderful unexpected surprise. And how did she know I actually collect aprons?? Hmm. It's amazing how well people get to know you in such a short amount of time.

Without further adieu, I present, rather proudly, our 2009 Easter Eggs. They were shiny and bright and ready to crack. For the record, we only cracked one in the process of cooking and two more in the process of dying. Those were ceramoniously dropped by Bella on the tile floor. She wanted to see what would happen. A scientist in the making, no doubt.

Wishing you a moment of shiny brightness. Hurry before it, too, cracks.

Apron strings are one of my ongoing themes. And honestly, I've never had ones that were so very pretty!!
