Then...and Now

Awhile back, someone commented that it was amazing to see the difference in our kids. That got me to thinking, what if I put together some pictures to see the difference. After all, with the exception of Z, we live with them and it's hard to see the changes sometimes. Heidi and I know that Nadia & Julia have gone through growth spurts, we keep the thrift shops in business with all the clothes we have bought. So, without further's our kids, then and now, in order of oldest to youngest.

Those aren't pictures of changes; they are pictures of transformations!

Wow, oh wow! I just can't believe how much all of them have grown up and changed. They are all absolutely beautiful and looking sooo "american" now! :)
LOVE the picture of Kolya in Ukraine...poor little muffin...

I loved this post! The pictures of Kolya made me tear up. They all look a little lost and confused in the "before" pictures. You (I) can see that a little light, was once dim but now shines so bright because of you two. You are wonderful and I love you guys (all 9 as a whole) to pieces.
