Greek Easter, the English Version

Greek Easter can be summed up in just four words.
I won the egg.
Yep it's been 16 years in the making and this year I said with confidence that I was gonna win!! Wondering what the egg game is, go here for a good explanation.

The winner is said to have good luck or "blessings" throughout the year! I'm so excited about this, you have no idea- 16 years, I've been waiting 16 years to win the egg!! I have been singing all day today!
And now the pictures:

the lamb

Aunt Olga (first generation American) and Yiayia

Aunt Olga and I

Justin and his friend. Aunt Olga said she liked their music very much. It was Guns and Roses, they had just found Steve's old CD's, and those of you over 30 know that CD's are to my kids what records were to us!

Vaughan got yelled at by Yiayia within 5 minutes of being at the house. He got caught eating spanakopita before it was time to eat. This is a big "no no" in Yiayia's kitchen.

Hanging out before we ate.

I like to call this picture "Me and 2 hotties."

Uncle Chuck
