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)

Here is a montage of just a few of our many pictures taken on our vacation! There is a story to tell behind each one, but I've just made brief comments. If anyone ever wants to take a kid-free luxurious vacation, let me know! I can make a recommendation!!

Public thanks go to my mom for offering this trip to me. She knew how much I needed it and it was so nice to go somewhere one-on-one with her. She reminded me that the last time we took a vacation was when we went to D.C. when I was in High School!

Warning: this video montage has NOTHING about adoption in it, so if that's what you are looking for, you should probably skip the video. ;o} Sorry!!

All of my pictures are not uploaded yet to my computer, so there are more, but I thought this was a great way to post a lot of pictures and also conserve space. lol Hope you enjoy it.

*** Sorry! I had some trouble putting the video on, so look UP and you'll find it!!

If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day, go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.
