Happy Easter!!! The day is here!!! Soon we will be celebrating with our family and friends!!! We have been working hard getting things ready. I have a turkey in the oven right now...the house smells wonderful! The Ouzo is ready! The eggs are ready! The tsoureki is ready! We have filled Easter baskets for little Jonathan and since the sun is shining bright we will get to have his egg hunt outdoors.
