I was looking through old posts and found this gem. The formatting is terrible but what can I say, I was just glad it published at all! I think these pictures of Vera are so funny and are so representative of her style ever since we've had her and she realized she could exercise some free will compared to the way they were dressed in Russia. All I can say is that she hasn't improved much, other than to refrain from covering herself in mud or mashed potatoes lately.
A sampling of my wardrobe enhanced (or impaired) girl who thinks she is a boy...
She also thinks she is Spider-man, mud creature, Small but Mighty man, Mashed Potato baseball player, and Western baseball cowboy. OK, I made the last one up.
Funny story about the batting helmet she is sporting in the last picture:
Vera wore it to Luke's first baseball game of the '06 season. We have no idea why but it wasn't a hill we were willing to die on so we let her.
During the game, she had climbed to the top bleacher and had her back to Luke's game while she watched another game. A kid in Luke's game hit a pop-up foul ball which came straight down on Vera's batting helmet. No kidding! She turned around like "What was that???" and the crowd (who had been watching Vera's antics prior to this) all busted out laughing in unison. This is just the sort of thing that would only happen to Vera!
