Last night for the first time ever, we had all ten of our children together under one roof.
Stephen is home on leave one more time before he goes to Iraq. He got home Monday, but just before picking him up we dropped off three of the kids for camp. But Stephen got to meet Ezra (who thinks it's great that he has another person to smile at) and play with his biggest admirers for a few days before the older kids came home. He also went to visit the older kids at camp one evening and they all said it was a fantastic service.
So today we all piled into the van to go to Grammy's house and see aunts, uncles, cousins, and of course Grammy and Grampy. I wanted to get a picture of all my children together and figured it would be perfect to take it in the van. They'd all be stuck there, all buckled in. But Ezra sits rear-facing. I could only get the back of his seat. I went to the back of the van figuring they could turn around, but Gloria's seat is way bigger than her and I couldn't get her in the picture. So I finally went from an angle where I could get Ezra and Gloria, but then I couldn't fit everyone in. I finally gave up so we could leave.
While at my mom's house, my sister took a picture of the whole bunch of us.
