happy monday and..pictures of the whole fan-damily
Miss Emily Anne, 28 - the nurse, still in her scrubbies. (when I was bragging about her the other day, I forgot to mention that she graduated Magna Cum Laude, Bachelors in Nursing...all while working full time at the medical ICU unit of a large hospital:)(she is going to kill me if she reads this:)
Miss Abigail Marie, 26...
Benjamin Paul 24, my soldier son...
Ashley Nicole, Benjamin's wife, my dear daughter-in-law.
Mirielle Joy 22, almost done with nursing school!
Joseph Michael 21.. and Aaron Royce 20.
Mali Rose 18, nursing student.
Samuel James 17....soldier-wannabe, criminal justice lover.
Margaret Cheryl 16, who did not want her picture taken. She is our ninth child, and is learning to drive. I should have a crown of patience by now!

And...the dad of all these kids, Paul, with Charlotte Claire and their snowman.
I am a stay at home mom with 16 kids,all single births, thirteen of them still at home...Emily and Abigail live down the road, and Benjamin is in the U.S. Army and is a combat medic. He was stationed in Washington state with his wife Ashley, but has been deployed overseas and is fighting in Afghanistan. I don't like rules and regulations, stupid laws, or other infringements on my rights but: I love when people are ethical and respectful from their own hearts and consciences...I love babies, and being pregnant, and love having all the children around. I love my teenagers-they are so much fun. I love my husband like crazy. I love going to the beach and staying until the sun sets. I am not organized, have no good advice to give, and cannot always remember my kids' snack days. But I love them with all my heart....the kids are Emily, 27, Abigail, 25, Benjamin 23, Mirielle 22, Joseph 20, Aaron 19, Mali 18, Samuel 16, Margaret 15, Kathryn 1, Evelyn 12, Suzanne 11, Sonja 9, Jonathan 7, Charlotte Claire, 5, and Camille Anaya, 4 years old...help for life can be found at http://brunstad.org/
