С праздником Пасхи! Happy Easter!
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?
