Orphanage pictures...

During our first trip to Russia, we left 2 disposable cameras for the orphanage caregivers to take pictures of Vera while we were gone. I was hoping we would get some pictures of her in her environment that she had been in for almost the last year. They didn't take a lot of pictures, but we got some good ones. It is so weird to look at her in these pictures, she doesn't look like the same child to me.

Vera looks just like my sister's baby pictures in the picture above!

So, the cameras weren't finished when they were given back to us, so we let Kiara take some pictures with them and got some pictures like this...
These were a couple of her better shots!

Then, once we got home we had a bunch of friends and their children over because my good friend, Holli, was home from England for a visit. I think 2 little boys got a hold of the cameras that I had left out and took a few pics. Here are a few of them...
I only wish they would have asked me how to use the flash, and we would have had some pretty good pics from our get together! It was so fun to see these pics when I got the cameras developed!

Here are some better pictures from our get together.

How fun! And I'm sure you didn't mean my son was taking pictures...I mean, he'd never. It was all Drake's fault!(:
Vera is just getting cuter and cuter!
