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)

This afternoon, I took Erik to a park for the first time! It was a GORGEOUS afternoon, and perfect for being outside!

Erik wasn't so sure about the swing, though. He cried, then he laughed, then he cried, then he just plain yelled!! Maybe he just needed practice...

"What is this thing, anyway, and how does it work...?"

"Turn it off!! Turn it off!!!"

"HEY!!! I'm FLYIN'!!!!!"

Oh, he is so adorable in his stylin' sunglasses! We LOVE swinging too. But, we are jealous because our swings are under 7 feet of snow! Can we come and swing with you?

So stinkin' cute! Swinging is Mason's favorite--the higher, the better.

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.
