peace and love

The big news around here, bigger than cars and refrigerators and ANYTHING else, is that Lexi was baptized last Sunday.

It was a beautiful, special day shared with friends. She was gorgeous--and so, so happy.

She practically RAN to church so that she could put on her "pretty, white dress". She looked like an angel--and acted like one throughout the service!

Everyone--friends, the priest, the congregation, her Sunday school teacher--really went out of their way to make the day a special one.

Hi,

Few months ago your cute Lexi said "Kookla, cheeste minna", it means "Doll is cleaner than me".
She is comedian in waiting :) Too bad she'll Russian speech in USA, but hey Its life. Great everything awaits her in USA, she is lucky,

take care,

Sergey.
