zird is the word [userpic]
Spring hasn't quite sprung, as the grass isn't riz, but it's surely on its way! See the egg in the 2nd picture? That's EXACTLY what color the sky was today. Friends for dinner cancelled due to a sick child (theirs), so we took a leisurely day to enjoy the sunshine. The whole neighborhood seemed to ring like a bell with the shouts and laughter of children wearing fleece instead of heavy winter jackets and the sun was warm and welcoming. We went up to the nursery and brought home a flat of pansies, now proudly planted in the front-yard pots. And we colored eggs! Of course, we did! This year, a friend gave the kids a "Shake & Dazzle" kit, and we used that on about half a dozen, but the kids preferred the old-fashioned vinegar & food coloring dyes and spent a happy half hour turning the tips of their fingers purple and red. Today, Easter Eve, in Sweden, it's estimated that SIX MILLION eggs are consumed. We actually didn't eat any except the one Karin ate that cracked when she shook and dazzled a little too hard. But we'll be making up for it tomorrow after the annual easter egg hunt in the park behind Malmö castle.

Hee! Well, not me personally, you understand. But the 9 million inhabitants of Sweden, yes. I don't know how that compares to other countries, though, on the average. It must be a hella lot of eggs worldwide this weekend, though!

So cute! And getting so old looking.

Yes, they'll be driving soon, and getting jobs. :P

oh my gosh- little child chose a sparkly egg kit but we talked her into tradition Paas. We tried a fancy kit last year and it wasn't nearly as fun as the regular kid! Did the kids draw on eggs with crayons? I love to do that!

Actually, we usually do that too, but this year, they were in too much of a hurry, and didn't do it. (partly because finding the crayons required a rather intensive search)


There's my favorite kids! The eggs look great. Happy Easter and an egg hunt behind a castle? Very cool.



Making those eggs look like so much fun!


Re: eggs

We look forward to it every year :) It's a highlight!

I love the pastel shades and the dyeing looks like so much fun to do!
Happy Easter!!

Pretty eggs!
I'm visiting my parents in Malmö now, so I actually saw the sky with my own eyes yesterday, and took a 1 hour walk in the lovely spring weather.

Yesterday was the first day I felt like it was really spring :)

happy easter!
i have to go and squint at the sun for three hours now, to help combat my jet lag. but where did i put all my warm clothes?? brrrr! :-)

are you back? You're back! Welcome back!

Nothing like the old-fashioned vinegar way. I still love to color eggs. (I like the coloring much more than the eating...)

That is cool. I bought a package years ago, and use one color each year, though that will change once our kid is born and grows up. This year, I was thinking of having blue eggs and ham (I used the green dye last year.) They taste pretty good, methinks.
