Happy Thanksgiving!!! (part II)

Left off w/ Nik helping to "cook."  Opening cans is considered cooking to a 9yo boy you know.  Kids did help though and I appreciated it very much. 

Another group shot of the kids.  Our goal is to be at one table but Warren has to find the time to do it.  Hoping maybe over the weekend.  

Alex's nickname at the dinner table has always been neandrathal.  I think you can guess way.  He loves to eat the legs of any bird.  And, he calls every meat we eat chicken.  Yes, even pork chops are chicken to Alex.  I think he enjoyed this turkey drumstick very much.  

Alyona showing me that she did indeed clean her plate.  

 One of the very hopeful dogs.  Love the wall, huh?  No, Digby did not do that.  The kids did.  URGHH!!!  Another thing to fix.  And, those are bunkbed pieces that we didn't use still standing in our dining room.  Hey, we did laundry so that can count for something, right?

 Some of the kids.  Reni is not up to smiling here for whatever reason.  Maybe it's b/c she was working on her 2nd plate of food and did not want to be disturbed.

There's a sparkle in those eyes of hers.  And little Summer eats everything put in front of her for the most part.  You can't help but to smile too when you see her.  I do believe this one has a very special purpose in this world.  Can't wait to find out what it is exactly.  

Ahh, mommy's little Nik Nak.  Though, not so little any more.  He & Summer are really bonding and very comfortable w/ each other.  He's another camera hog.  

I know it looks like Alaska is licking Yana's mouth but she's really not.  Yana and Alyona goofing off a bit for the camera.  This was after turkey lunch.
