Yana on her 9th birthday. Yes, we used to have a deck before it became a dining room. This was just a few months after Yana had been home in 2005.
Another one from 2005. Alex & Max unearthing a rock in the front yard. Boys.
Waiting for the bus that year, my kids were a site. Bojan in a walker w/ a prosthetic & a cast on the other leg. Alyona in a cast as well. This was during the botched surgery time we went through. Oy. Now you also see why Alex's nickname used to be cotton top. Yana looked huge compared to them. Crazy, huh? 2007.
Nik, sporting his Santa hat. 2007.
Alyona, Nik & Bojan during a festival we went to. Having fun as usual. 2008.
Warren working with the kids on some Lowes projects. Warren is a brave man to hold the nail while the kids used the hammer. To this day though, he hasn't broken any fingers yet. And, the kids love this. 2009.
