Joyous Feast-Pascha Moments and Updates

A beautiful joyous feast to all.  
From Holy Saturday at Midnight until this upcoming Sunday, is one day! 

Check out these cool Pascha Chocolates!

Actually found these while we were heading to the awesome Metropolis of Boston Retreat Center for the National Presbytera Retreat. It was a fantastic time and the facilities are so beautiful and staff are very engaging and attentive.
Next retreat is in October in Texas, mark your calendars!!!
Can't wait to see all my Sister-Presbyteres, it truly is a sisterhood.

We stopped at this grocery in Concord that turned out to be divine. 
I found these, they made me giggle. I've been wanting to share them for a long time.

Here are some of our beautiful flowers from our Kouvouklion.
They are still aromatic.

I made this wreath on Holy Friday, after helping with the flowers for the Kouvouklion.
This year we weren't able to get bay leaves and these gorgeous lemon branches came instead.
These were left over and so before heading to the Apokothelisis service (the Un-Nailing), 
I was able to tie this together. Not as structured, sort of whimsical?

Too big? What do you think?

Happy April Fool's Day!

Well, it seems like pranks happen to be a big part of our lives lately? Our son couldn't wait for April Fool's and so in the past 2 weeks, we have had frozen cereal served, cotton balls in shoes, pull poppers on the doors and an elastic band over the faucet hose. Needless to say, gales of giggles have followed.

So this morning it was my turn.

Pretzel fish on the fish tank.
(recently all our mollies went to the big fish tank)

At lunch time, he opened up his lunchbox to find?

In addition to his regular lunch, an old banana and a bag full of nothing!

It was a big hit at the elementary lunch table.

Then when he got home from school for his after school snack.
Dog biscuit cookies were served.
Don't be worried, they are chocolate chip.

Did you play any pranks today?
