I have been so bad about blogging the past month, but I'm determined to catch up. Today I got two different email messages from folks on Facebook wanting me to post pictures from the Christmas holidays. There's no hope there. I haven't posted pictures on Facebook for nearly a year, and the idea of catching up there is totally overwhelming. I'm determined to blog each day though until I catch up. I did try for over an hour yesterday to post a video from my camera, but I wasn't successful. That was frustrating!
Here's today's pictures. They are from December 20th. Ben's mom and stepdad came bearing gifts, and the kids had Christmas #2. We had a great visit and again ate way too much.
I'm a work-at-home mom of thirteen children ranging in age from twenty-six years old to five months old. Eight are home grown and five were adopted internationally (Russia, Guatemala, Vietnam and Ethiopia). We live on an 85-acre farm, and we have home schooled since 1986. My husband is a family physician in solo practice. I manage his practice and file the insurance claims.
