It's been amazing having 9 kids here ever since we got Michael. It's definitely been an adjustment since I have a 6 month old and they both came in our lives almost around the same time. So instead of adjusting for one kid, I'm adjusting for two kids. So guess what?? I fought to get his baby sister Grace so now we'll soon be adjusting for 3! We will have 10 kids! Wow!!! Pray for Grace as DCS will be bringing it to court to get her in my custody. It takes a couple of weeks. She's already in a foster home somewhere with people she doesn't know. In my care she'll have her big brother. So this is huge! Michael has been in tears at times worrying about his little sister. I can imagine how hard that would be on him. He's always had a bond with her. He has no idea as we are going to surprise him when she gets here. I don't want to say she's coming and then it not work out in court.

Soooo, as much as I hate blurring Michael's face out of our family photo, it legally has to be done so I don't get in trouble. It makes me sad because I don't like to leave kids out. I explained to him it's for his safety and just the rules but we love him very much. I'm just gonna make a personal album for us at home where his face can be shown. :)
My sweet kids and little nephew Prestyn. He's such a cutie and very smart for his age. Anyway, we had fun for Halloween. This was the first year we bought used costumes as we decided it was ridiculous to go and buy new costumes for only one day of the year. If I had a couple of kids it'd be fine but for nine kids, it'd be a ton of money. We had fun storming the used costume stores! Haha.
