Welcome! Your family is awesome. It reminds me of my dh's family, he is number 6 out of 14. Makes for a fun holiday season.

Hi! What a great family? Do you all fit in the van with the carseats? Do you go places altogether? That is awesome!

Hi Christi!

I loved your pictures (you or whoever took them is a great photographer). I have a question for you: how do manage your children's needs for space/ privacy (I'm assuming you don't have a 10 bedroom house!). I would like to have more but at four kids + 2 parents with three bedrooms, and no extra rooms (or even large closets!) that could be turned into bedrooms, I feel like we're at critical mass.

Again you've got a beautiful family! Those picures made my day.

Welcome!

We spent Thanksgiving with a family that has 11 children ranging in ages 31 to7. One wasnt there and 4 of the 'kids' that where there are married, 1 with children. It was a most enjoyable day, big families seem to have a special love and bonding
