The Entire Gang!

Do you know how hard it is to get the whole family together these days?  That's why when Ashlyn snuck in a quick visit a week ago, I made sure we assembled for a quick photo shoot after church.  Here is the entire family -- yes, all twelve of us!!!

Top row:  Hannah (14), Josh (19), Joe (17), Alan ("the new 30" -ish), Taylor (21), Chris (15)

Bottom row:  Bethany (6), Luke (12), Matt (9), Me (not yet "the new 30!"), Tiffany (26 today!), Ashlyn (23)

The following picture contains all of the above plus Josh's fiance, Kristi.

Group Hug!!  :)

Crazy Faces!!  ;)

Having ALL of us together was Fantastic, but Fleeting . . . .

Ashlyn is currently in Ecuador for a three-week mission trip, where she will be doing children's ministry and photo-journalism.  Hopefully, she will find time to post some of her thoughts and the pictures she captures here.

Beautiful family. I know my time will come when I will not see all of my kids. It's more of a reason to enjoy them while they are young.

Beautiful pictures. So glad you could get everyone together. It is hard when there are so many people to think about. We just a couple weeks ago did our 'gang' pictures. So worth the effort.

Elizabeth, you're just a tiny little thing in comparison to most of your kids' height! =)
