Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted
according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or
slow to do the humble work.

I am the proud mom to 6 kids: Natasha, 24, Nikolai, 20, Reese, 20, Maylee, 14, Erik, 10 and Violet, 7. The kids come from Russia, Ukraine and China; I'm so proud of my family sometimes I think I'll burst and I needed an outlet for it - so I've created this weblog. :o)

Happy Easter!! All four of us managed to get up and ready and over to the beach for Easter Sunrise Service at Lori Wilson Park!! We got there, but I had not thought things through and we did not have chairs or a blanket, and a few of us couldn't stand on sand for an hour and a half, so we decided to go back up and sit in a little pavilion that was over on the dune. We couldn't hear the service from there, though, so we left!! It was embarrassing, though... Here are some pictures from our morning:
Here is the service as seen from our place at the pavilion. You can see that the sun was rising, but it's hard to see the ocean in this light. But it was there. :o) A very beautiful morning. A perfect Easter morning!!

Here is Reese, listening (or trying to) from the railing near the pavilion. (You can see the ocean better in this one.)

The boys and I, on our way back to the car, through the hammock. (Look how tall Reese is! He's 14 1/2, now. Nikolai will be 15 in a couple of weeks.)

Think getting good pictures of the kids is tough? Try getting a good one of Mark and me!!

All dressed up, and no girls around...

"I AM smiling naturally!!"

Hungry, waiting for breakfast.

"If you take a picture of me while I'm eating, I'll...!!"

Food, Reese's FAVORITE thing!!

Tuckered out on the way home, after a a big breakfast, and a busy morning that started TOO early.

If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.
