My Siblings

Hello Everyone,

This post boasts the best photos that have ever made it on this blog. Unfortunately, I didn't take them. :-) Our family (the children) had their portraits taken not too long ago, and I am finally getting them posted. All those of you with siblings know what a blessing they are, and that life would be unimaginably dull without them! As I am writing this, I am surrounded by them: Conrad is digging in the drawer beside me for an envelope, Candace is pounding on the piano, now Mom is digging in another drawer to my right, Faith is ...well raising her voice in protest because someone (who shall remain unnamed) did something (which shall remain unmentioned), and I just got finished explaining to all those that were hanging over my shoulder that I can't write while people are watching me! Sound familiar?! If it doesn't, you are certainly to be pitied. Big, large, humongous, oversize families are one of the greatest things on earth! You ought to see our grins when someone stops us to comment on the size of our family; we simply thrive on people's consternation as they count, "One, two, three, four, five, six, Seven, Eight, NINE!!!

"Brothers and sisters, together as friends, ready to face whatever life sends. Joy and laughter or tears and strife, holding hands tightly as we dance through life."

Thanks for posting, I really enjoyed reading all you wrote and seeing the photos.

The above quote about siblings is true. What a great thing brothers and sisters are! I love my big family!! :-)
