counting with family visits

A whirlwind week that I am still recovering from... hence the Multitude Monday has become Thankful Thursday! :)  but it is still the counting of the gifts!  My three sisters came LAST Monday-Wednesday (with one niece and my NEWBORN nephew)  It was really all about my adorable nephew, but I had some great sister time as well!! my kids LOVED him... couldn't get enough of him. And my oldest said he really wanted a baby brother! (um, sorry, kiddo!)

Then Friday, my husband's brother and his family came to visit. Their kids are all mixed in agewise with my kids, so we had 7 kids, ages 3-8 running around for 4 1/2 days! :) it was lots of fun! and in the midst of this, I counted (and took some pictures ...until my camera broke)!
