A dozen pictures for a dozen kids...

We had six extra kids overnight for 8 nights and 9 days this past week, while my brother-in-law and sister-in-law were traveling abroad to attend WYD events.  That brought the total in our house to a DOZEN kids!  It was busy, loud, messy (especially since we were hit with the stomach flu - yuck!!), but the blessings definitely outnumbered all the burdens.  There was bonding.  There was nurturing.  There was faith.  There was love.  There was service. There were birthdays (2 of them to celebrate).  There were late nights out.  There was sharing.  There was caring.  There were giggles.  God's presence and grace were with us moment after moment.  Here are a dozen pictures to show all the fun we had during the week that we had a dozen kids in the Summer of 2011....
