Our family is huge. Eight children (seven living), twenty-two grandchildren, and my father still keeps an impressive pace--at 89!
My husband and I have lived in three different states, but we finally achieved our dream recently of moving to the Redwoods. And the grand view of the Pacific Ocean ain't too bad either!
Take a look! Enjoy. If you read Dragon Unchained, you'll probably understand where some of the book ideas originated.
Natives around here call this place "country." I call it a forest. Either way, the small but busy surroundings also gave me the backdrop for creating Saving Lord Whitton's Daughter.
This is me before my youngest daughter got hold of the bleach bottle.
Home Sweet Home!
This is our absolutely spectacular front, back, and all around yard! Isn't it gorgeous? We feel so fortunate to live here. And this is my silly husband and even sillier me, after the bleach found it's way to my roots, and we found our way into the forest.
Grandchildren are precious! Here are 17 of the 22. Maybe someday I can con the other 5 kids' parents into giving me some pictures I can share. :)
This is a halloweeny batch of 8 of our grandchildren.
Left: One daughter's little boy, and yes, that's red hair.
Right: Our youngest daughter's little boy.
Our son took the last picture of us with six of his seven children. They're expecting number eight!
