Christmases at 305 Los Angeles Avenue in Montebello, California.
The eight surviving Bagdanov kids. I’m the one in yellow, youngest of the first 5 (our oldest sister died in Iran when she was 2). My parents had four more children after me. The two youngest amongst us are twins.
Me with my two older sisters.
Our brother Fred is missing from this photo. Can’t remember why. Oops…just realized this one is probably Easter, not Christmas.
Christmas morning at our little babushka’s apartment a few doors down from the Russian Baptist Church in Los Angeles.
Nadia and Moisi, our dear parents. This will be our first Christmas without both our parents.
Hope all is merry and bright in your corner of the world.
