Well, Pascha this year was...different.  First, we had a newborn so I couldn't go to church.  Darryl was completely exhausted when he left for church and I was so fearful he was going to fall asleep at the wheel, I slept on the couch with Juliana frantically waiting for them to come home.  I did end up falling asleep and apparently he did as well(in the garage).  He was too tired to even get out of the car!
He finally woke up and brought the kids in and went to bed but I could tell he was soooo tired from lack of sleep with having a new baby.
The next morning the boys woke to their baskets and then we headed outside for an egg hunt.  It was soooo cold outside it didn't feel like spring at all!  All the boys had such a blast finding all the eggs!
We came back in to start our dinner.  We were making Roast lamb,Greek Potato Salad, Asparagus, Deviled Eggs, Hummus with pita chips and Strawberry Shortcake.
After preparing some of the food, I started to to feel ill.  I knew what was happening-I was coming down with mastitis.  I started getting chills and came down with a fever.  So, I started eating massive amounts of garlic cloves. I also headed to bed.  It wasn't what I expected on such a celebratory day, but that is the way it goes.  After much rest and much more garlic, I felt better by morning. 
Needless to say, the boys had a great day and even baby Juliana got some wonderful gifts!
