Ken and Joy said...

Very special, indeed! Glad you made it home safely. Congrats again!

Debbie said...

Now THIS is extra special. To see the kids with the tree and the three stockings on the mantle...sigh. Slava Bogu--thank you so much, Lord! Merry Christmas, Roge' Cinco (or should I say Feliz Navidad?)!

We tracked you all the way home. Through our KLM contacts in AMS we knew you were on the flight home. Only 28 minutes delay at the gate, not too bad.
We wish you all a very Happy Christmas and look forward to more pictures from the kids.
We are visiting our little Viktoria in Sumy internat for Christmas and hope to get her home early February.
Greetings from us all

Dick, Lilya, Sergey, Alex and Marieke de Gunst

What is with the helmets?? I never had a helmet! I had a "Sting-Ray" with a banana seat, the only thing that needed protection was everything that got in my way. Matt

What wonderful Christmas memories! Every year as you celebrate, you'll always remember this first Christmas home with your children.

Enjoy this special time!

The first thing our daughter wanted to do was ride her bike when we got home, too! LOL (That is the big picture on our blog) Must be something very special to them.

Merry Christmas Roge's! Now tell us what is going on. I need my fix! We are going to the boat for New Year's but will check in during the week. What are you guys doing for New Years? How do the kids like the house? Have they seen Captain Ron yet? Bruce wants to know if you are calling them "swab" yet? These are questions which need answers!

Hi!!!!!!!!!!!! We are at John Howards in Kherson having lunch with Ashley. She enjoyed seeing Zina and Rimma's pictures on your blog. We haven't seen them yet as the last two times we had Ashley we picked her up from the internot and stole her away for the day. We are praying our docs get here from Kiev on the train tonight so we can have court tomorrow. We miss and love you all!
