Happy Halloween and Sweet 16!

from the entire Roberts crew…and Bonehead Bob too!

Last night we celebrated Ashton's Sweet 16.  I still remember being in the hospital on Halloween night, after giving birth to Ashton, and my sister and brother in law bringing our 5 other children up to meet their new baby sister and to trick or treat at my room.  I had made a treat bag for each of the kids and stuffed them full of candy and a Beanie Baby (are those still popular???) for each of our kids.   I know we all say and think this as our children grow;  I cannot help but to think back to being just 30 years old with 6 children ages 8 and below and pondering how quickly the years have passed by.

I also wonder where I went wrong as a parent….

Meet Camila and you already know Trevor…or should I say meet Cameron and you already know Trevalina?

    Funny, isn't it, how our memories of maternity hospital are sooo vivid, and the intervening time seems to have gone by in a flash.
    Ashton looks like the sweetest girl ever!
