Easter photos

Share & Comment

Happy Easter! I just downloaded photos from the day and thought I'd share a few of my favorites.


Greek Easter bread, made by Harry. The red egg is traditional. The blue one with melted crayon spirals, not so much.


A very excited Maia on Easter morning.


Hunting for eggs.


Maia was a whirlwind; Daphne a bit slower.


It was the first of several egg hunts of the day (Maia wanted a repeat and hid them for me to find, then her friend hid them for her, etc…).


Not this child's first taste of chocolate, but my goodness, that's a lot of chocolate for a little toddler! (We spirited it away after she nibbled on the ear.)


Maia wrote a spontaneous letter to the Easter bunny and asked me to put it in the mail. Hmm, what's the address?


And the best part? Maia's aunt and uncle were visiting with their little peanut. Here's a photo of the cousins.

Happy Easter!

    In some areas of Spain we use to eat that you call “Greek Easter bread” and we call “monas de Pascua”. they are a little bit small but they are very similar! :)
    Is ti traditional eating them in USA for Easter too?
    Great pics!

    Love your photos. Looks like a wonderful day! I particularly love the looks of your Greek Easter bread! Yum. We bought one from Annie’s bakery. But homemade is always better.

    Gorgeous photos! Especially loved the last one – of the three kidoos. Love how Maia is being the elder sis! So cute.
    And the bread – wow they are huge! Lovely photo, that one too.
    The egg hunting activity must have been fun!

    My four-year-old was asking for the Easter Bunny’s address too; she wanted to send him a thank you card!

    There is a lovely recipe in “Baking Break with Children” by Warren Lee Cohen, that’s the one we used and it’s so yummy!!

    Hi…! heres the bloggers recipe I used, although I could not find the mastic and mahlevi so i omitted them and it turned out great.
    He has some other nice traditional Greek recipes as well. Also I recommend using 1C sugar, not 1.5C as it is still very sweet that way. 2.2 lbs of flour translates to 8 Cups exactly:
    Enjoy! This makes 3 loaves and the bread can always be sliced 1/2” thick or so and frozen indefinitely for french toast…
