Day 25:
Day 25: that's amazing, I'll agree with this.

Favourite OTMA charitable act.

Tatiana, nursing the soldiers in WWI.


I agree Tim but will go more specific...

How about Tatiana setting up that committee to assist with displaced/refugees during the war? Apparently it continued to operate even after her death. A nice legacy.

I decided to get involved: Palace Spala because I like to hunt, TN was hot looking babe, Cyril and Boris Vlad are a couple of cowards ect.
I have information on both ONs and TN charities posted on their sections. The Tatiana Committee was set up by her mother Alexandra shortly after the start of the war. It continued to operate for awhile after Nicholas abdicated. The Bolos set up their own organization to take care of refugees with no reference to TN.

Day 25: Oh, the war work. All of it. It was all important, whether one was handling administrative duties or amputated limbs.

Day 25: I can't choose any specific charitable act, I preffer just to mention the work that the Big Pair did for nursing all these wounded soldiers, as well as the job that the Little Pair did when they visited the soldiers.

Day 26:  Favourite Anastasia antic.

Climbing trees to get out of French lessons (and I can't blame her, I hated French classes with a passion in my school days).

Day 26: The time she hid that apple in her dress and ate it and couldn't have any baked apples. "It was so much fun eating that apple!" LOL. But I also like when she was tied to the chair.

So many to choose from! I think mine is when she was playing hide and seek with Gleb Botkin, and hid her shoes behind a curtain with the toes poking out so he thought that's where she was hiding.

Apparently she did very good impressions of certain people. That's what would make me laugh. : )

OTMAA's Ring-Around-the-Rosie on the Standart.

Absolutely! That just kills me every time. A somewhat close second would be those cute clips of them roller skating on the deck of the Standart. Trying hard to keep their balance. Very cute.
Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right...

My grandma made me a quilt with OTMAA stitched onto it. It's hanging on my wall. :)
