Blast from the past (Halloween)

Haven't done one of these for awhile and came across some old Halloween pictures from 2006!  Wow, hard to believe it was 6 years ago and that we only had 5 kids.  We had just gotten back from Murmansk, Russia from our first trip to visit Alyona & Nik.  I was so ready to go back but we threw a little Halloween party for the kids and their friends.  Here's a few shots from that day of our kids.  They truly have grown. 


Pinatas are always, always a hit at kids' parties.  Here's some of the kids.  This was one of hte smaller parties.  I think around 15 other kids came.  One year, we literally had around 50 kids here!  Yeh, that one was a little nuts.  


Bojan, getting ready to wrap up Alex.  Aren't they cute?!


Yana, all too happy to be a mummy.  


Honestly, I don't remember who Max wrapped up.  We were cleaning toilet paper up for days. 

What's a Halloween party w/out bobbing for apples?  Kids love this and always great in NC b/c never really that cold this time of year.  Irina looks so different.


I remember when Bojan was obsessed w/ Batman.  Everything was Batman.  He even wanted to be Batman.  Too funny.  Alex was ready to go trick or treating for sure.  And Max left his light saber at home so he could get more candy.  LOL.


Picture of the 5.  This was just a few weeks before we added Nik and Alyona.  


Wow, this was when we had 5 kids and the smaller dining room.  This room is now part of our kitchen.  Think they got a good haul?  Max and Alex look so dog gone little to me.  Hard to believe that they were that small once.


Irina's face says it all about the amount of chocolate consumed that night.
