How about your family?
What makes you unique?
Thanks for sharing about your family, it sounds like you are all truly blessed. What a beautiful thing.
Oh, I see so much of my family in this! 🙂 We’re Food Network addicts, could eat a box of cereal in a day (if everyone would learn to like the same thing.) Yep. Big families are the best! 🙂
love this! your family sounds adorable 🙂
Love the pic of your daughter with the icecream…she has star quality! Love hearing about your special family!
this makes me all the more certain that we’re somehow related. : ) this sounds like my family too… minus five kids. ; )
Love this! What a fun family ya’all are!
Our family…loves loves LOVES to read; will eat birthday cake (with coffee) for breakfast; is loving our first ever garden; all are early risers (except this momma!)
I miss good apples! Haven’t had a good one in a long time. Spent over 15 minutes picking up apples in our yard (thanks to the neighbor’s apple tree) but they’re all rotten. They’re always all rotten because they start out rotten on the tree.
What a tremendous comfort we have in the wounds of Jesus! Praying in Seattle right now!
Isaiah 49:13-16a Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the LORD hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted. But Zion said, The LORD hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me. Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands…

I love this kind of post…thanks for the peek into your family. How truly special you all are!
I love sauerkraut.
I think you should post a video of your family singing the John Deere song. 🙂

I’m new to your blog, we homeschool and are expecting baby #7 (who has spina bifida). I just wanted to share about the inexpensive table we bought for our growing family – it works wonderfully. Here is my post all about it: http://ourbusyhomeschool.blogspot.com/2011/03/table-for-10-without-breaking-bank.html
We bought it on amazon.
