It Has Been A While...

..And this is why. We welcomed our sweet number eight, Thomas Everett, on March 9th. He is perfectly perfect and I am spending a lot of time enjoying all of the newborn snuggles.

Back to School

The kids were so super excited. We had a very nice ten week summer, but the kids were ready to be back seeing their friends and being back on our very comfortable school year routine. This year, we celebrated Libby starting kindergarten. Anne started this school year at a new preschool and has loved every minute meeting new friends!

A Little Late

Our 35lb Bulldog turned two July 13th. He rocks our world, but is the coolest little boy that walks (or runs) the earth.

Shut Your Mouth When You're Talking to Me

Meg's favorite line from mother's who find out we have seven children...

"I don't know how you do it! I can't even handle my one (or two, or three, or four)!".

Who admits to a total stranger that they can't handle their own children? So my favorite response to this comment is....

"I'm sorry to hear that".

I just wonder why people say that. Makes them appear silly.

Family Pride

T.P Barnett Co

One of the many, many building in St. Louis designed by my great, great, great grandfather.

Fun at the St. Louis Zoo

Have I ever mentioned that we have, by far, the best Zoo in the country?? Well, we do. It's free and it's beautiful and our city pours a lot of money into it. It's an amazing place where children can learn, abd explore, and have a lot of fun with the endless exhibits. There is a bit of family history at the St. Louis Zoo on my side of the family, so it is an extra special place for us. Needless to say, Dan and I had such a fabulous time with our three youngest this morning. (Have you all figured out that Evan just loves water?!)

Eleven Years....

Dan and I celebrated eleven years of marriage on June 9th. The past few weeks have been so busy that our anniversary sneaked up on us quickly. What can I say? There are seven children in our house, life moves pretty quickly. Just adding some some pics of the kiddos with this post. After all, they wouldn't be here without Dan and I having a strong, loving marriage.
