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)

I always like to say that Christmas is my favorite holiday, but I always feel like Easter is the most important holiday! After all, if it weren't for Easter...!!!!

We had a nice holiday. Nothing exciting. Eggs, egg/basket hunt, church, cookie making. Church was excellent, which was wonderful - a very moving service in so many ways! I am soooooo thankful that God chose ME to be in His wonderful family!!! To be the daughter of the King is so humbling and exciting!!!

Anyway, I know you are after pictures, so here they are!!

Ahh, coloring eggs... This year we did a "sponge painting" type method, which I thought was quite a bit of fun.

Erik, as expected, showed no interest in coloring eggs, but he sure had fun playing with the empty carton! LOL

Mark even got in on the fun!!


The kids with their loot.

Erik knows you've got to grab where ever you can to keep from falling down! (How did Reese keep from falling...?)

Ready for church. :o)

Missy, what beautiful uplifting pictures. Your boys are so handsome-even Mark in the morning:) Thanks for sharing them. I loved your comment on my blog "welcome to the family" it was so special. I have never heard it said that way and it warmed my heart. I don't know why but God has had you on my heart and I have been praying for you. Hugs Rhonda

If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.
