MomDot Blog Party Day 1

Today kicks off the Christmas Blog Party at MomDot! Day 1's question is: Introduce us to your family and share pictures from past Holidays.

Here is our family portrait from last Christmas:

Sorry, I don't have access to any other Holiday pictures :-( Meet my children:



Here is Wesley, age 17. He is a prolific writer and future film maker.


Here is Richard, age 16. He wants to study engineering as a possible pre-med course of study.


Here is Chipper, age 13. He is a history buff who wants to be a professor.


This is one of the only pictures I have of Thomas by himself, age 9 next week. He is a future family physician. He cares about people!

Here is Jordan, age 7. Isn't my little chef a cutie?

This is Rose, the princess of the family, age 5. She wants to be a mermaid and a baby doctor!

Leroy, age 3, loves the movie Cars. He wants to be a truck fixer. How about those curls?

This is Ralph, age 18 months. He is the superstar of the family. I know, he needs a haircut - I trimmed the top this morning, so now he has a nice mullet!!

It is strange to me that my children seem to be so very certain of their future professions. I still haven't decided what I want to be when I grow up!

Day One Blog Party Question is Brought to you by La Belle Toile and This and That by Randi

I don't know what I want to be when I grow up either, but it is sooo cool that your kids do! Nice family!

Tena said...

All of your babies are adorable, and I am very impressed that they know what they want to be when they grow up! All I know is I never want to grow up, lol
Happy Holidays

your family portrait is amazing

I'm seeing a trend here...none of us adults want to grow up....and all of the kids know exactly what they want!

My son is 3 and loves CARS too. Know where I can buy a Mater rug? lol

Staci said...

I think it's wonderful that they all have such passions! Wonderful photos!

Tracye said...

Awww! Who cares if he needs a haircut! Hubs is constantly saying our boy (2 years next month!) needs one. But I love running my fingers through baby hair... and you can't do that when it's short!

Wow what a great big family, how do you have time to blog?

Laurie said...

You have a beautiful family. I love the picture of your son dressed as Jack Sparrow and your special exposure Wednesday picture is too cute! I love what you are doing on this blog although with 7 kids how do you find the time!?? I have four kids and I feel so busy all the time. I also only have 1 daughter. Boys are so much fun, too! I hope you enjoy your holiday season. ;)
