New clothes from Russia

My aunt Luda from Russia sent some clothes for the girls. I know that she is checking our blog from time to time so I am posting this pictures so she can see how the clothes fit.

Emma in blue and Stacia in her new dress and tights

Anastasia posing in her new summer dress

Another pretty dress
New t-shirts
Emma's t-shirt has a very cute saying:
"10000 flowers and 5000 kisses to break the door of my heart and enter my soul."


This pictures should be in an opposite order... But anyway... I just had to post this.
Emma and Anastasia went outside to play and I was thinking that the driveway is dry so it should not be any problems. In a couple minutes I hear Anastasia's cry. I came out and saw her shoes sitting in the mud and Anastasia was standing in her socks on the snow. Only couple minutes outside and she had to go back home... she do not have a rubber boots and anyway I thought that our driveway is dry enough to play:)
After I got the shoes out

Stuck in the mud!!!

A nice Spring Day

Here are some pictures taken earlier this week on a nice clear day. Vicka and the baby stayed home to get some more rest and my mom, the girls and I all went to the beach. :) Here is what we saw.

Part of the "Alaska Range" right next to Mt. Redoubt

Emma and Stacia around an interesting ice formation on the beach

We think this is a cool looking picture. :)

Emma's Easter Egg Hunt:)

Emma loved her egg hunt and she collected many eggs. She was so looking forward to this event last couple days:)

It was a lot of fun to watch all little kids:)

Anastasia's Easter Egg hunt:)

Anastasia didn't like to hunt eggs in the snow. She was crying and very upset:)

The only time she was happy when we went inside and she opened her eggs and got a candy out:)
