Some reflections on the weekend

Some images from the weekend.

Grandma and Grandpa, Fyodor's folks, stayed with us this weekend. We had a good time, considering the fact that the length of the visit was due to their car breaking down! I really felt the grace of God in how peaceful our time was. Ten people in a three bedroom house!
 Leia found a little costume and wanted to put it on. It was a very cute clown outfit, and we put some red lipstick on her cheeks, lips and nose. She really looked adorable (not like those scary clowns). Then she got all self conscious and took it off before Grandma Kurdelak could get a picture. I got these:

Thank you, Lord, for the everyday joys of family life.
