New Year party #3

When we got home this morning, we opened our presents from Grandfather Frost (pretty much, the Russian equivalent of Santa Claus). Among other things, Sasha got a spinning toy, which she helped papa assemble:

But mama's new gloves were by far her favorite gift of all:

Finally, our last party of the holiday season was today at my parents' house. My uncles, aunt, and cousins came over for a quick get-together and we exchanged presents and ate some of the left-overs (why, oh why, is there always so much food at these gatherings of ours??)

With great-grandma, watching as auntie Anna opened her presents

The three of us

Sasha spent most of the time trying to kiss everybody, including her new best friend Emily

Finally, Emily succumbed to the cuteness!

Playing with grandpa L. and Emily's camera

Phew, that was a lot of partying and gift giving for just a few days, but how fun! I love the holidays! Now I need to devise a plan on how to let Y leave the tree and all the wonderful decorations in our apartment as long as we can ;)
