Happy Easter 2013!

Christus Resurrexit! Christ is Risen!

A Russian Cheese Pashka (GF and nut free for my husband). An Orthodox Pashka is usually decorated with a Russian cross and the letters XB which represent the first letters of the Pascal greeting "Христос воскрес!" (Christos voskres!) On our Pashka, I used the letters C & R to represent "Christus Resurrexit" and a Latin cross but I also included the usual symbols around the sides and also an XA for the Greek "Χριστός ἀνέστη!" ( Khristós Anésti!)
One for me, one for you!

    So beautiful! I love the ribbon touch on the Paschal Candle. I know I said that last year!

    And the Pashka is perfect!

  7. Oh, what a honey! Happy Easter to you too!

    About the dressing, my girls don't really have a style yet, but one is more "fancy" than the other by adding lots of accessories, like scarves, bracelets, boots, etc..fancy hair braids...one is much more simple and practical. They do try to be exactly opposite of each other though. Kind of funny.

    1. Oh, yes, Miss Emily! It was her Easter dress. Thankfully, she hasn't grown very much since her last birthday (she's my petite-est child yet) so it still fits. We paired it with a sparkly silvery shrug and some silver shoes. Thank you, again!
