This blog started as a week-by-week look at our lives in 2010 (hence the address) in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Now, with the closing of my other blog, from-russia, I've decided to extend this blog to cover 2011 as well (despite the address--which really bugs me now that it's inaccurate).

week fifty-two!

We ended the year SICK. Sick, sick, sick. A photo of the humidifier would be more appropriate. Or tissues. Or the bathroom...

Instead is here Christmas eve (store-bought cookies testify to our ill-health) and one from Christmas morning. (I know Christmas eve is really still in week fifty-one...but only by a couple of hours.)

There's nice symmetry in this last picture. The photo in this first post can be seen on the toy bins here. Nice, huh? [I was thinking there was too much visual clutter in this photo, but there only two from which to choose. Later, I realized that this linked the beginning and end of 2010's photos and it seemed kismetal. (That should be a word.)]

week fifty-one

(Okay, that picture above sums up the week. Below are all the pictures from our trip. I'll review it here later. We're both really, really sick and not up to much. In short: this is not a trip for the under 12's.)

week fifty

I love the look on Lexi's face...

...and Thera's face in the midst of this good-bye dogpile of second graders.
(She wasn't the one leaving.)
