Oh...that's right, I have a blog!

To prove that I am indeed still alive, I shall now post a picture:

A tiny little girl entering a Russian Orthodox Church--August 2011

Hey, that was kind of fun. Hmm, maybe another picture...

The local "S.T.A.R.S" barn; an animal-oriented therapeutic center for children with disabilities. My sister "Daria" volunteers there, and she is always struck by how joyful the children are! 

  Apparently, my niece or nephew is now about the size of an eggplant (I'm positive Pixie is much cuter, though!). Hopefully this week we will hear whether Baby is a he-Nix or a she-Nix. Either will be absolutely loved by this aunt!! 

My last remark does not come with a picture but just might make you all jealous; we're eating ice cream for dinner. Shh don't tell our dentist.

Because He First Loved Us

"It’s this sense of amazement, that I, a sinner, have peace with God, that makes the heart tender, kind and forgiving." John Piper
