North Carolina Blizzard

We finally received our first snow of the year and yes, this amount of snow closed school for 2 days and Shawn got 1 day off for it! The kids had a blast, Kaitlyn sledding for the first time and Carrick throwing snowballs. Hope everyone is doing well.

Love, Shawn, Jen, Kaitlyn and Carrick

Our Kaz Kids with their Gifts!

Here are pictures of Nina's family, Family #9, receiving their gifts. I see lots of smiles in these pictures. All of you made these smiles and this party possible for these wonderful children. Below is the note I was sent with the children's pictures:

Hi Barb,
Yay! The packages were delivered earlier today!!! Attached are the photos. Nina looks great! Thank you and your family so much for doing something special for Family 9! The children's excitement is evident in many of the photos! This meant a lot to them---especially the fact that they EACH got something! I thought you did a great job picking out items to send! Thanks again!

It is all your donations that made it possible for each of these children to have a holiday celebration where they felt special. It may not have happened on the Holiday - but it happened. Those smiles were put on those faces by all of you. Please go to (a link is on the right side of this blog) and read what Laura, one of our contacts to the orphanage, wrote about all of you and your generosity to these wonderful children. You know the saying: "But for the grace of God . . . . "

Thank you doesn't say all we feel. I hope you enjoy the show!
Ken and Barb

Boxes Arrived in Kazakhstan

I received word yesterday that the three boxes for Family#9 have arrived in Petropavlovsk, Kaz. The first two boxes had arrived some time ago, so I really thought they would never see box three. Ken and I have sent many boxes to Nina and they never took this long. It must take much longer at the holidays. I will post pictures as soon as they are sent to me. Thank you all again for your generosity.
