I am so happy that Pascha is 40 days! Soon after we had our dinner, all five of us hit the hay and slept for 12 hours. Truth be told, I think that I could easily sleep for 12 more, but! It's Pascha! Sleep is overrated!
We had a wonderful day yesterday. Our dinner was ham, loaded baked potatoes (they sounded better than scalloped!) and roasted asparagus. I made our carrot cake, but it was never eaten... we were too stuffed from dinner! I also didn't make our Greek Pascha Bread yet, but there is plenty of time for that. Last year, I made it once a week for all 40 days!
Today will be a lot of fun! We have Liturgy this morning and then plan to take the children to the movie theater to see Bears. We also never held our little family egg hunt yesterday, so we'll do that today as well!
I hope that you had a lovely Pascha Sunday yesterday!

No matter how well I think I am prepared for Pascha, I am always working on last minute details in the final hours before the midnight Liturgy. There is a peacefulness to the evening while everyone is sleeping (and I'm so glad when my husband gets in a little snooze between all of his hard work!). I enjoy putting together our family Pascha basket, adding the final touches to the little surprises that we have for the children, filling the plastic eggs, and putting together a centerpiece for the table. It was a lovely Holy Week. All of our parishioners have worked so hard to make this a special Pascha and I am really looking forward to the next forty days of feasting and celebrating!!
