Twelve Kids!

Spencer and Ivy arrived last Thursday with their three rough and tumble boys. Our kids are so excited to have them around. It's nice to no longer be the only sibling in Maine anymore. Sunday evening I snapped some photos of the kids, but Logan was not feeling well, as is evident in the picture. Zack was plenty happy, though, and Abe stuck out his tongue when I asked him to smile. Such a typical boy! Ethan also insisted on having his picture taken, of course. Thomas was taken aback by a bite of mashed potatoes with dill.

Pierced Ears

Laura was given the gift of pierced ears for her birthday back in December, but we never got around to getting it done until March (mostly due to our vehicle troubles). She just started being able to wear different earrings a couple of weeks ago and loves to change them several times a day.

Rachelle's Poem

Rachelle wrote a poem years ago that was published in the October 2000 Friend. A couple of years ago, a woman named Deanne Flynn contacted her to ask permission to put it to music and add to it. She is currently a featured performer at Time Out For Women and sings this song at it. You can find out more about her at www.deanneflynn.com. The first verse is Chelle's poem exactly word for word, and the rest is written by Deanne. It was just put on youtube, so watch it and rate it so it can move up.
