stickers on the back of our van for a few years and we love them!Now that we have nine children, people rarely ask me if I'm planning on having any more. I think they probably assume that I am going to! However, we still get the question "Are they all yours?" We've had this personalized license plate for a few years now and I love it! I've seen people behind me when I'm stopped who read it and I can see them point and start laughing. We've also had these
We do get a lot of stares when we all go out as a family. I've had people literally run up to me from across the mall and the parking lot to talk to me. They have so many questions to ask, such as; "How do you do laundry? Is it easy? How old are they?" I'm always willing to answer questions but I'm always surprised at people's reactions. But when you think about it, how many large families do you see out and about? I go out often and quite honestly I never see large families. We go out to restaurants, the mall, the movies, the fair and just about anywhere and we never see families with more than four children. I think people tend to be fascinated with large families, especially with the media attention that has been shown lately to families such as the Duggars and the Gosselins. We always tell our children that people will look at us differently because there are so many of us and it is a chance to let our light shine for the Lord and to be an example. That doesn't mean that we are perfect, but we try to keep in mind that people are paying attention to us. We are so thankful for our large family and we hope that it shows! Yes, they're all ours!
