Last Christmas

This picture was taken last Christmas.   It will be fun to see this year's picture comparison.
Kara is standing (she has 4 children), Kelsey is sitting and she now  has 4 boys and Lori our daughter is on the left.  She is the mother of Kara, Kelsey, Nathan and has adopted 4 children.  They are in the process of adopting 4 more.
I kid Lori all the time about how I had ONE daughter and now we have 19 children to love, plus spouses.  I am truly blessed!

Joan is sure is nice to have such a beautiful family, you must post this years picture side by side so we can see the difference. I can't wait to see the difference in our family this year, mainly the height of Connor. He is going to blow the socks off his 2 uncles. I'm tickle to hear Lori is adopting again, she sure is blessed. As always you and Jon have a beautiful family.

It almost looks like my house with all the kiddos!! We had our family Christmas this Sunday, and I LOVE this time of the year when we are all together, it doesn't happen often anymore as the kids are growing up and going their separate ways...I feel blessed by them all. Have a wonderful Christmas Joan, and I hope you can find some "me" time for yourself!!
