My wife has 14 brothers and sisters, all from the same sweet, patient mother. In the past few weeks and months my mother-in-law has added four more grandchildren to her ever-growing list. I think that brings the number to around 25 with another one due this year. It is fun for my children to have so many cousins to play with. My wife and I both enjoy having bigger than average families and all the things that go with it. There is never a dull moment.
Today we attended the baby blessing of Allayna Chidester in Spanish Fork, Utah. She was blessed by her father Jeff. Afterwards we went to their in-laws home and enjoyed a wonderful brunch. It was the first time that we have had the four new babies all together. From left to right, Spencer is just over a week old, Brianna is almost 5 weeks old, Allayna is 4 weeks old and Cambrie is the oldest.
