Easter Sunday, April 4, 2010. Frohe Osten!
Easter Sunday, April 4, 2010. Sandra. Frohe Osten!
Elke knows how to create an atmosphere with the table she sets. The Easter breakfast table was spread with coloured cooked eggs, special multi-grain brotchen, marmalade, and Easter decorations. The egg hunt which followed breakfast was terrific fun! - some items were hung from trees while others were tucked among trees branches. Karannina and Alexander found the traditional "openable" egg-shaped paper containers filled with goodies. Everyone found something useful and/or tasty. Elke again created a lovely spread with a fantastic Easter lunch. Her son, daughter-in-law and their two children, Pia and Leoni helped to complete the family Easter meal time. We enjoyed a tasty stew, many vegetable options and potato options (cooked, kugel, and pomme frit). It was delicious and we enjoyed having fun around the table. It then was Pia and Leoni's turn to enjoy an Easter hunt. We walked over to Elke's son's home to see their newly renovated WC (water closet) while the children enjoyed each other's company. Karannina and Alexander stayed at Pia and Leoni's place while Onkel Manfred, Elke, Dieter and myself went for a walk in the neighbourhood. During the evening we had 'down time'. Some Gemütlichkeit was enjoyed by the 4 adults for this last evening together - a good tradition. This was a terrific family Easter Sunday!
