Happy Anniversary, Kev! Today is our 8th anniversary and although we are as far away as we have ever been it is for a great reason. :)I love you sweet boy!
This is my first attempt at posting pictures from the internet cafe so hopefully I do this right! I won't have time to post and add pictures so it is just pictures today since it has been a while.
Alina loves all cats. All animals really. There are tons of strays around here. She carries a ziplock of kibble in her purse to feed any of them she finds while we are out walking. This kitten lives in Julia's apartment stairwell.
Alina at the internet cafe yesterday. She was watching a Hannah Montana music video. She loves music and so I put her on YouTube while I type on the computer next to her. Today she is watching videos of kitties.
Alina picked this outfit for out for herself at the Children's World store in the mall. She and mama don't really have the same taste but this one was pretty cute so I let her get it. New tennis shoes too! She was so proud of herself in her own clothes. At the orphanage most everything is shared and probably never new.
The little ones watch some of the movies we have made. When they see "Poppy" they start waving and smiling and talking to him. How cute is that?
Igor did a song and dance show yesterday afternoon for Ilona and I. He was using my brush the whole time. I wonder what he was singing.
Sweet Alina. The blanket she is sleeping with was mine when I was little. She loves it. She talks in her sleep and of course it is in Russian.
Alina and her friend Vladik. They were taken out to a cafe to celebrate his birthday last week and asked me to take a picture before they left. Alina is one of the oldest at the orphanage and most of her friends are boys.
Ilona pretends to sleep after she makes a bed with blocks.
Alina on the swings. She loves to walk around and find swings. Most every apartment building has a playground and there are apartment buildings everywhere. "Cochilla" means swings.
Watching "Enchanted" last weekend. She loves it!
