I LOVE MY SIBLINGS!

ageorder

I am one of 8 kids.  Unheard of, I know!  These days, it’s rare to find families with more than 2 or 3 kids, let alone 8!  We were able to ALL be together this Christmas for the first time in a few years.  Though it’s hard to be far away from my family, we keep in touch.  We can call, text, Skype, use social media, etc.  It was really fun to all be together for a week to celebrate Christmas together.

Christine is number 8.  She is a college student and the “baby” of the family.

Not everyone gets to be a part of such an incredible family like mine.  I am so blessed.  To end, here is the family portrait we took with Dad, Mom, kids, spouses and children:

    • Thanks!! Insane is an understatement! lol When we all get together with all of our spouses and kids (there are currently 10 grandkids in my immediate family, including Winter), it’s nuts! But gotta love it!

  1. Your family makes me want lots of babies! It looks like you all really enjoy each other which is so wonderful. Xo

    • Haha, glad it inspires you to have a big family:) I truly love my huge family, but I think I’ll only have 2-3 of my own, just because sometimes I don’t know how my mom and dad had the energy for all 8 of us!! You are such a good mommy, you’d be amazing with lots of kids!

    • Yes, it’s always so much fun, but there is always the sad time that comes after it’s over (this past week)…. Getting back to normal life is hard, but I know we will eventually all get together sometime:)
