Meet our TEN plus!
#10 - Maddie
Here is the baby of our big brood. Awww, she's such a mama's girl! The only girl left at home and constantly bribing me with her pretty pictures, hugs & kisses. I think she'll grow up and be an artist and singer, just like her big sister Shelby. I am such a lucky mom!
#9 - Regan
This fella is just as charming as he looks. Super sweet and a leader and role model. He is amazing at sports....all sports & so much fun!!!
#8 - Trace
Trace is Tom's youngest and the only of his kids who still lives at home. I honestly think of Trace as one of my very own. It's been a beautiful thing to see some of our kids develop close relationships, and it's in part because Trace is such a sweet caring person. Not only that, but he's athletic, loves every single sport and is good at everything! He's got some great moves on the dance floor too! ;)
#7 - William Grady
Grady is pretty much the smartest kid I know. He knows every scientific fact you can imagine. You know how a kid goes to their parent and asks questions all the time. Well I'm asking HIM! Haha. He's a sweetheart!
#6 - Shelby
This kid is such a go-getter, I could dedicate a whole blog to her! She is currently attending college at SUU in Cedar City. Not only is she beautiful, but she is mega talented too. She's won many art, acting and dance awards plus she sings like an angel! Got the sweetest email from the YW president the other day about her......Cindy (that's me!), I have the cutest story to tell you. I was giving the lesson in YW on Sunday (Divine Nature kick-off Sunday), and I was describing almost the perfect girl--and one of the girls said "sounds like Shelby". All the girls agreed (and by this time I was losing the point I was trying to make that nobody has all the talents in the world), so I had to tell them that even Shelby woke up in the morning with bad breath and messed up hair:). So you now know she is held in high esteem by her little sisters of the Estrella YW! - Ann (See, it's not just me. hehe.)
P.S. These fabulous photos were taken by our friend Cindy Carroll Photography, another mega-talent!
And a super fun short VIDEO of Shelby, also created by Cindy Carroll.
#5 - John Michael
John is currently serving his LDS mission in Arequipa Peru. I MISS HIM LIKE CRAZY! He's super fun ladies, so start lining up your daughters for when he gets home November 2012! ;)
#4 - Devin
She's usually sporting basketball shorts & t-shirts, but she looks adorable, no matter what!!! She moved to Texas for work and school AND I MISS HER!!!!! She's a workout queen and a great friend & daughter!
#3 - Whitney
Whitney, Tyler, Cashen & new baby on the way!
Beautiful Whitney is married to a wonderful guy (Tyler!) & has the cutest little baby boy (Cashen!). New baby BOY due June 2011! She's the oldest girl in the family & always has lots of great big-sister advice.
#2 - Kyle
Kyle & his very sweet wifeTara live in Texas and that is just TOO FAR AWAY! They are excitedly expecting their 1st baby in April 2011!! IT'S A GIRL!!! :)
Chris is the oldest of our crazy bunch...great husband, father & guy! Super smart! I absolutely adore his talented wife Brooke! She is an excellent mother AND very talented crafter! You can check out her handicrafts on Red Brick Sewing HERE.
Words cannot even describe how much I love Chris & Brooke's children! Abigail, Laney-Bug & Craig are SO much fun and we always look forward to their visits!
