Cousins Summer 2005 (9 out of 10, Emerson was not born, yet)
Spring 2007

I have 4 neices and 2 nephews.The ages are 14, 12, 12, 10, 9, 8, 8, 7, 5, and almost 2.
My 4 daughters are the youngest.

On at least 1 day a week I have all 10 at my house afterschool. Yes, 10! That's two more than Kate Gosslin. I have often thought of J&K+8 and how they frequently refer to their life with 2 sets of multiples as a challenge and I would agree it's a zoo. However, I think it's the # of kids not the fact they are multiples that is overwhelming. Once they were out of diapers she gets the avdantage of multiples. It would be much easier if on Tuesdays, I only had to keep 2 age groups entertained instead of 8 different ages. Well, and a camera crew to help watch over them when they run off!

Hi! I got your comment about the covered button hair clips. I was just going to reply back but your email isnt available.

Anyhoo, I bought the covered button kit (without shanks) at J Caroline Creative (link on my blog), a bag of fabric scraps, and a bag hair clips from there as well. They are super easy. Just cut your fabric using the guide in the kit, cover the button, and hot glue the now fabric covered button onto the hair clip! I did discover you have to be careful with them or the glue will come undone, so next time I will probably try a stronger glue.

Here is a link to the picture of the ones I made.

I love the beach pictures. That Miles is a stud :)

I agree 100%! It is the different ages that make it so hard! We need our own show!

Wow, 10 to watch is a lot. Wouldn't it be nice to have that camera crew to help you. J & K + 8 is on my favorite shows.

Love the beach picture!
