I hope you all had a wonderful Easter Sunday!
After attending a sunrise service with some friends at a local church, we had lovely Easter brunch at our house. Later on, since there was a ton of snow on the ground and I was still a bit sick, we opted to hunt the Easter eggs in our apartment.
|The first thing my daughter did after getting dressed was to go to the|
nature table and roll the stone away from the empty tomb. Then,
she changed the cross from purple to white.
|Happy Spring, huh? Apparently, we Berliners|
are having the coldest March in 130 years!
|We made a Russian Easter cake called a "kulich"|
for brunch. Mine looks a little like a giant
mushroom, because the dough overflowed
the coffee can while baking.: )

On Tuesday, we got to see baby chicks hatching at the Kindermuseum MachMit!, a hands-on children's museum in the Prenzlauerberg district of Berlin. It also has an amazing jungle-gym labyrinth on the top floor. Makes me wish I was a kid again!
And on Wednesday, we visited a stable and got to ride horses.
We've also started using our Resurrection cards and telling all the stories about Jesus between the resurrection and his ascension.
Easter is such a wonderful time of year, and now
we have 6 whole weeks to celebrate it!
