Welcome to our blog! Take a peek at our fun (but sometimes crazy!) life with raising 10 kids (well, 9 left at home)! There's never a dull moment at our house!

Happy Birthday Jesus!
It's Christmas! What a wonderful celebration of our Savior's birth! We began our celebration last nite with our annual "Happy Birthday Jesus" party. The kids sang happy birthday and then enjoyed some yummy cake that they helped make! Always a fun time, and a good reminder of the true meaning of the holiday.
This morning, the kids were all up bright and early for some present opening. They each received several gifts from mom and dad and family members. The girls loved their new dolls...
Here's little 2 yo with her new baby buggy!
Big brother with his Cowboys football jersey and hat. He loves watching all the games!
One of the best gifts? My 8 yo daughter's gift to her 5 yo brother. What a nice looking hat! Despite the expression in the picture, he really did love it.
We are preparing for a lovely meal later this afternoon-it's cooking right now. I am so thankful this Christmas for my family and dear friends, but most of all, for God sending his son, Jesus, to earth so many years ago, to save us. His gift is free and available to every one of us-we just have to be willing to accept it. Without Him, none of us would have the promise of eternal life in Heaven with God, but would be spending an eternity of separation from Him because of our sin. Amazingly, He came to the earth not as a powerful king, but a helpless baby, yet he is the almighty, all powerful God. Thank you Jesus for everything you have done and for loving us so dearly! And most of all, Happy Birthday!!
