Grand-baby #7 is on the way!

Yes, you heard right! We aunties get to have one more little kitchen helper who gets their hands covered in flour, and the uncles will have another niece or nephew to "help" them with farm chores and as for Grandpa and Nana, their laps will just be a little fuller as they read stories, combine corn and bake cookies with the grandkids. None of us had any idea how charming+precious+darling+smart+ lovable+delightful they can be! And so were all thrilled when we heard that
Carson and Carolina are having another baby!
Jubilee will make such great big sister to the little one arriving late summer!

National Sibling Day+Friday Flashbacks!

Today is National Sibling Day! Of course our fam doesn't always celebrate these "National Days", but being from a large family and all growing up being close, this is an especially fun one!
Enjoy these pictures of us as sibling back when we were younger! 
And I can speak for all my siblings, having your siblings as besties is a blessing and something worth aiming at! Pray for your siblings and intentionally work on those relationships-it's worth it!
Working together is the best!
We like to have a little fun while we're at it!
This is what stair-steps look like when everyone cooperates!
And this is what they look like when they don't!
Lots of crazy moments with a big family!
Some laps are just made for little sibs!
Reciting verses during the Bible Bee
Smiles while all dressed up!
Kitchen sibling time
So grateful for awesome older brothers!
Concerts and road life are great bonding times!
“Your siblings are the only people in the world who know what it’s like to have been brought up the way you were.” – Betsy Cohen
"The greatest gifts our parents ever gave us was each other".

Thank-you Mom and Dad for your example of faithfulness and perseverance through the combined two-hundred (and counting!) years of raising children! We love you!
