Our big five year old!

Happy birthday Oliver! I can't believe you are five years old!  What a big boy!
On your special day, first we all went and saw Finding Dory! 
Then we went to In and Out.

Back at home we sang happy birthday and you blew out five candles.

It was so cute watching you open your presents.

You are just so cute!
Nolan and Alex were just as excited as you to celebrate your special day!
We all love you so much!

Happy Birthday John

Happy birthday John!  We love you so much!
The kids thought it would be neat if we put 47 candles on Daddy's cake so we could watch him blow them all out.  Dennis was excited to help light the candles, but he kind of burned his finger.

The kids enjoyed having Dad read their cards.
Alex and Nolan love that Daddy can always make them laugh!

Happy birthday to my awesome husband!

Happy Birthday Sveta!

We are so blessed to have Sveta as our daughter. We are so proud. This year she turned nineteen! I happened to be in Guatemala on her birthday, but her siblings took care of her with a nice cake and dinner.  Dad also took her and the other kids roller skating.
Sveta and Galina
Keep shining!

Scenes From the Girls' Grad Party

Congratulations to our three senior graduates!  We could not be more proud of them!  Not only have they earned their diplomas and certificates, but they have done so with integrity, hard work, and perseverance.  Job well done.
Sveta and Annalyn graduated on May 31, 2016.
Julia graduated on June 2, 2016.

We celebrated with friends and family on June 4th.
To combat the very warm weather, the water hose came out.

And during a group picture, the sprinklers may have kicked on.

Our three beautiful graduates.

Natalie and Oliver have officially graduated from pre-school.  After the graduation, their class had a nice party.  Next year, both of them will be in the same class again.  I am excited for them!  My two youngest are growing up!
