Presents from Inky!

This afternoon I was busily working on school work when I noticed the mailman left something on the porch, so I got up to see what it was, and it was a package addressed to me! I looked to see who it was from, and it was from Inky, my Russian friend living in NYC!

Well I quickly went upstairs, and opened the package. Inside were lots of very thoughtful presents from Inky, here is what there was:

1. Some new earrings. Inky read on my blog that my ears are pierced, and she was nice enough to send some new earrings. I can't wait! My favorites are the red ones, which is Inky's favorite color, so I will think of her when I wear them.

2. Cheburashka stuffed animal. This is a Russian cartoon about a little monkey named Chuburashka, and it is Inky's favorite! Anyway, I got the stuffed animal that goes along with the show. I love him, he is so soft and cute!

3. Cheburashka cartoon! Not only did I get the stuffed animal, but I got the movie that goes along with it! I am so lucky! The entire cartoon is in Russian, so Mama said I could watch it this afternoon instead of doing my reading, because she wants me to practice my Russian (I've already forgotten a lot). Anyway, I watched the second episode, the one that is Inky's favorite, and it is so funny! I love Gena the crocodile.Here I am watching my new cartoon with Cheburashka on my lap (and Miffy too).


Here is one of the episodes, if you have a few minutes you can watch it too!


Thank you Inky!

I'm so glad you got my package! Did you recognize your hair ribbon? I finally found it in a box of picture frames- three months later.

I'm glad you like the DVD! Cheburashka is great. The song in the beginning of the 2nd episode is my favorite. I love that part that goes "it's such a pity that birthdays come only once per year."

Love,
Inky

Violet,
Hasn't it been fun to watch Chuburashka together? Thank you for teaching me some Russian.

That cute birthday song has been stuck in my head for two days!

Dad
