My First Mother's Day!

                                                     (Alex, 16 years old.  Mark 14 years old.)
Yesterday was my 1st Mother's Day.  It was perfect!  It started with hugs and flowers.  And, a "World's Best Mom" certificate. It ended with the boys cooking a yummy dinner and doing extra chores.  I am so blessed to be their momma!

I know many of you are wondering how our journey went from adopting Mahesh in India to now having 2 sons from Ukraine.  We are working on a post to share with you all about how God took our story and turned it upside down (and inside out!) to make it more than we ever could have dreamed!  Stay tuned!

Happy Birthday To Me!

Every year  I have wake up on March 4th one year older. I have woken up as a daughter, a wife, a sister, a friend, a niece, an aunt, a volunteer and a child of God. Tomorrow morning, on my 41st birthday, I will wake up as a MOM!  God is so good!

Snow Day!

What do you do to get your kids off of the nintendo and away from tv? Fill spray bottles with water & food coloring so they can "spray paint" in the snow and borrow a sled from the neighbor. When they still have energy and you're ready to come in? Teach them about serving their neighbors by having them shovel the neighbors driveway!
