|Not pictured: Bossy, Gamer, Taco, Burrito, Bean-Dip, Drama Queen and Scout|
My sweetie and I have been married for 27 years. We are both from small towns in Utah and we have raised our children on the Wasatch Front. We had always wanted a big family and we were definitely blessed with one. Meet the kids...
My 26-year-old daughter suffers from "oldest-child-syndrome" so we'll call her Bossy. Bossy is married to "Gamer" and they have two boys, 6-year-old "Taco" and 4-year-old "Burrito." Gamer also has a son from a previous relationship who is 8. He often joins us for special days and on weekends. Let’s call him "Bean-Dip."
My 23-year-old son loves to work out, so he can be "Gym Rat."
My 21-year-old daughter is twin-majoring in English and Theater, so we can call her the "Drama Queen."
My 19-year-old daughter is majoring in Elementary Ed, so we need to call her "Teach."
My 17-year-old son has a very successful dog-walking business, so I want to call him "Dog-Walker."
My 14-year-old has a guy friend who calls her "Princess," so that is her new name.
My 12-year-old just got her pointe shoes, so she can be "Prima Donna."
My 10-year-old loves to dance, but she is also a big-time crafter, so we will call her "Crafty."
My seven-year-old son plays basketball and soccer, so "Sport" sounds like a good name for him.
The five-year-old is just like her oldest sister, but we can’t call her Bossy, so we'll call her "Scout."
My 2-year-old has beautiful white curls and big blue eyes, so I think we’ll call him "Curly."
And finally, we have my little one. She is 3 ½ months old and definitely my "Baby Doll."
My dad has a room here, so at the risk of being obvious, we will just refer to him as "Grandpa." For individual pics and a glance at the Dog Walker's blog, click here.
