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 am so late in posting!! I have really neglected my blog, but honestly, there's nothing that I can really say! There is something HUGE that I am dying to share, but I'm not ready yet. (UGH!!) It's soooo hard to not share!! Once I do, I'll be full of posts full of stuff. :o)

BUT! In the meantime, my husband Mark had a birthday! Happy Birthday, Markie!! He absolutely HATES having his picture on my blog, but that's too bad - it's my blog and I'll put pictures here if I want to! (Sorry, Markie! ...get your own blog!)

He had a pretty good birthday, even if he felt really miserable all day, poor guy. We woke him up with breakfast, cards and gifts and finished the day with a delicious supper with a sloppy dessert cake!

Poor guy! Gets woken up, eggs shoved under his nose, and is expected to smile for the camera!!

Why? Why are you doing this to my daddy?? Why??

Opening his cards (I think this one is from his mom). Doesn't he look happy that it's his birthday and it's so early in the morning??

Ahh, I'd LOVE to make a comment about this T-shirt, but I'd better not!! LOL!!

The red T-shirt may not have gone over real big, but he LOVED this one!! How he does love his dog, Daisy!!

IMO, this was the best gift that he got: it's a "Fire Wallet". It's a real wallet, but it has a gizmo on it that you flick and it lights on fire!! REALLY COOL!! And yes, the flames are really big! :o)

After the morning party, we went to church, then I took Erik to downtown Cocoa so that he could play in the fountains. Funny, though, mostly he LOOKED at the fountains - didn't seem real interested in actually getting IN them, which was odd for him. He had fun though, and that's what matters.

And, of course, the birthday cake shot.

And yes, as a matter of fact, that IS a mop and bucket sitting on the chair in the background. At least it's OUT, as if I USED it!!!

Happy Birthday, Markie!! We love you!!

Happy birthday Mark! It's not easy to smile for the camera first thing in the morning :-) Hope you had a pleasant day!

And really, Missy, if you've said A you've got to say B. Share the secret! I'm curious!

Awe, Happy Birthday Mark! You look like a teddy bear sitting there in front of your cake :)

What a guy....

Now Missy--shame on you for being such a tease in your post! What's the big secret??? You have my mind wandering to.....hmmmm, a GIRL? Did you talk Markie into 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.
