A Present For You

Merry Christmas! My present to you all is finally changing my header picture! I have had a ton of people ask me to change it, so here you all are! 

Here are a few more pictures from our photo session. (I have been working on my photography lately.) Most of the kids were very willing to pose.

Victoria, however, was a really tough audience. It took a lot to get a little smile.  

I really like the expression on Elliot's face here. Five sisters can be tiring! 

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! 


  1. Seeing Victoria smile just makes me happy! What a beautiful, beautiful family. Merry Christmas. Annette

  2. Awesome!! Love seeing updated photos! The little gals from Ukraine have changed sooo much for the better thanks to your love and care, and all the kids look healthy and happy! Love you, friend!

  3. I absolutely love it! Fantastic pictures!

  4. I LOVE the new header picture. What a beautiful family (minus the two adults of course :)

  5. FANTASTIC!!!!! Love all of them!
    Thank you!! :)

  6. Great pictures! You did a good job. I love to read the things you write about the`adventures of your family. I also had 5 girls and 1 boy (and he is the oldest). When they were younger and we took trips to visit family we had a ball. We laughed ourselves silly with crazy antics. Love my family much. Love your family too.

  7. I have always wondered whether elliot was close to his sisters, and how he feels about the adoptions. Maybe someday you could do a post about it.

  8. Love it! Your family is beautiful!

  9. Wonderful pictures, congratulations !! They are all beautiful, the little ones are so cute, the two tweenagers shine and your son seems to be a proud big bro !!
