family.

oh my gosh!!
i just love these guys.

my brothers sometimes laugh at me for having such a large family.
i hold little lily and kiss her till she has the most intoxicating giggle... then i tell her-
"Uncle Matt didn't want YOU!!"
honestly, even uncle matt agrees that life wouldn't be as bright without 6!!

i believe that children are gifts.
blessings.
"Happy is he who has a quiver full of them" --psalms something??
i have been blessed abundantly.
and...  although the thought of being pregnant AGAIN makes me so NOT excited.
{ugh.  pregnancy affects my brain... i spend 9 months fighting CRANKY with all my might}
it's just 9 months of hard.
then i have an eternity of complete joy.
no.  i'm NOT pregnant. 
yet.
i'm just sayin'  it's hard.... very hard... but worth it.
i have a sign in my house that always makes me smile.
GRANT ME THE PATIENCE TO DEAL WITH MY BLESSINGS.
love it.

it's not just 6 that i love.
it's each individual kid.
i really can't imagine life without any one of them.
family.
seriously... THIS is what life's all about.

Aw, how sweet. 6 is a lot, but I kind of want a big family, too. We live on a farm, and it just seems to "fit."

Jen, I love the picture of all the kids in a row. It's so fun to see them together, yet they're each their own little person. I love it. It's like my Dr. in NV always said, "You never regret having that 'one more.'" It's so true. Great tribute to FUN family times. We can't wait to see you guys soon!
