С праздником Пасхи! Happy Easter!

Inky's Easter 2010

Happy Easters! My family celebrates on Orthodox Easter, which is usually a different day than western Easter- but this year both Easters were on the same day! I woke up early to see if the bunny had brought me anything.  My moms told me I could have double candy if I wore a dress! I would have worn a dress anyway, since it's a holiday, but I took the bribe happily.

Last night, I worked hard on dyeing eggs and making these special Russian egg carriers.  I made an egg and carrier for all my neighbors on our floor- because it's better to share your holiday happiness than keep it to yourself!

I love the little Russian egg carriers. I was thinking that if you guys liked them too, then next year I will do a special post on how to make them. They are very easy and they are pretty too!

My Easter present was a big green egg from Playmobil. It was half as tall as me! My mom got it in Germany this summer, but they are available in the US now too. I opened it up and there was a mama and baby panda inside, with a zookeeper! Aren't they cute?

This was a nice quiet Easter. If you celebrate Easter, what did you do this year? Did you get presents? Candy? Did you dress up?

Happy Springtime!

  4. Happy Easter, Inky! I'm glad you had a good holiday. You look very pretty in your dress. Those egg carriers are neat, I like them a lot. You did a nice job making them, and dyeing the eggs are well. What cute little panda Playmobils! :)

  5. Hi Inky,
    Thanks for your comments on my blog I can't believe the police make you get down from the trees! What happened to kids being kids? Still, you've got so many great things to do in NYC: museums, library, sculpture, great public transit. It must be a very exciting place to live.
    I would love to meet you in person! We'll have to figure something out. I live in Tucson. My mama and papa have been to New Mexico, but I haven't.
    You're Russian egg carriers are neat. I hope you decide to post how to make them. Congrats on your playmobil animals, they are adorable!

    hugs,
    Karma

  8. LOL, at taking the bribe. But hey, it works! You did a wonderful job coloring the eggs and the carriers are awesome; how do you make them? It looks like you got some fun stuff.

    I got yummy candy and some play-doh, hehe. And the kitties got some special treats, too.
