Eight Kids ~ Wordless Wednesday

Saturday night, I told the kids all I wanted for Mother's Day was a card from each of them telling me they loved me. Sunday morning, after a nice breakfast and presentations of the cards (Lillian helped the little ones create them), I told them all I wanted was a picture of all of my kids together. They were nice to accommodate me, even though by the time we got everyone dressed for Church and ready for a picture, Harmony was cranky and uncooperative and I was a bit stressed out and bossy myself. Lillian is camera-shy on the best of days, but she smiled and sat nicely anyway, Allison smiled even though two minutes earlier she'd been pouting, and Joey put up with Harmony screaming in his ear. Yep, they really must love me.

And wow, that's a lot of kids. I still can't believe I have eight of these rascals.

Plus six girls! SIX!

I am just now getting caught up on blogs.

First, CONGRATULATIONS!!! Katie is absolutely beautiful. I just LOVE that Harmony loves her so much.
I'm glad you had such a great experience with this birth.
I hope Harmony and your husband feel better.

Second, just interesting facts/comparisons (to me at least); my mom had 8 children, 6 boys and 2 girls (which, as you know, is just opposite of you) and of the 8 children she only had one non-medicated birth and that was with #8 (me!).

Oh, and I love all the pictures.

All of your children are gorgeous.

Your family is beautiful. Congratulations on the newborn. I too, asked for letters from each of my kids for Mother's Day. I'll treasure those far more than flowers, chocolates and trinkets. Keep up the good work.

Just a gorgeous family! I love reading your blog. We really should meet sometime. We have a similar number of children really close in ages. Maybe this summer sometime after you have recovered and gotten a handle on 8 children? I am up your way a lot because my husband has a wonderful family of 9 kids and we are always having parties in Provo. (I think that being grown up together is a big bonus in having a large family too.)
