My Family

Now, before I start, you should probably know that these are our pseudonyms, not our actual names. Just in case you happened to think we were wacky or something ;) 

A son, husband, dad, lumberjack, carpenter, teacher, cook, accountant, maintenance guy, and much more! It's kinda hard to say exactly what his occupation is. . . ;)

Personally, I think she's amazing. (not just saying that 'cause she's my mom ;))  She home schools us (I still don't understand how she can teach Grades 10 through kindergarten and not get confused!) She can do just about everything, from making maple syrup, to playing board games, to raising us 7 crazy kids, to cooking meals for us almost every single day of the year, and tons more. Mom truly is a blessing to us all and I don't know what we'd do without her! :) 

And now for all the kids. . . . ;)

Blessing Counter
I am 17 years old and the author of this blog. I'm the oldest of 7, a daughter, and, most importantly, a child of Christ Jesus. I enjoy singing, photography, blogging, baking (especially decorating cakes) reading, writing, and talking to friends!

Tiger Lily
This pretty gal is 15 years old and our family comedian! She always sees the funny side in pretty much everything and anything. There's never a dull moment when she's around! :) Her hobbies include baking (she specializes in Brown Butter Cookies and Cheesecakes, mmm!) talking to friends, spending time with her siblings, and making people laugh! :)  

Spiderman is 12 and the oldest boy in our family. We sometimes call him a monkey because of his amazing agility and flexibility. He can climb trees, squeeze through rather small spaces, and yes, he's very good at monkey bars! :) He's also somewhat of a powerhouse...all those hours hauling and stacking wood and lugging around 20L buckets full of sap must have paid off! Free time is spent building amazing Lego structures, and playing sports or games with his siblings.

This handsome boy is 11 years old (double digits!!) and the fourth oldest of 7. He's exactly in the middle of all the children! :) You could say he's a Star Wars fan, just like Spiderman, Snow White, and Dare Devil. He is very hardworking and very close to Spiderman. They are almost always seen together, hauling wood, swimming, building Lego, playing Transformers...

Snow White
At 8 years, she's part tomboy, part princess, and wholly our beautiful little girl! Because she's right smack between 4 boys, she is often seen rough-housing it with the boys. But she can also be a perfect princess, acting very ladylike and dainty. And she makes a very pretty subject for photos! :) She loves to do so many things, including building Lego with her brothers, playing dolls with her sisters, sledding, skating, skiing, swimming, playing the piano, singing, and lots more! 

Dare Devil
His name pretty much sums up what he is! Dare Devil is 5 years old and one daring boy! He is very eager to try out pretty much anything! He can be very persevering and once he's set his mind on something, it can sometimes be very hard to persuade him from it. He loves trying to do whatever his older siblings do! He has already learned how to ski (got a blue sticker and was very proud of it!) and recently learned how to skate (the boys are now teaching him how to play hockey) His latest adventure: Reading!

This adorable boy is 3 years old and full of fun and mischief. He's very independent and loves doing things on his own. His free time is spent getting into mischief with his partner-in-crime, Dare Devil! But he always brings laughter wherever he is and we all love him to bits! :D 

Sweet Pea
The newest addition to the family, our sweet little darling here, greeted us a little over 5 months ago. She is an absolute bundle of joy, and is already giving us adorable silent baby giggles 💕💕💕  

And last, but not least, is our pet, Maple! She's a 6 year old yellow lab and very active. She can get very hyper, but she is extremely gentle with all of us kids. Even if someone like Toblerone pulls her tail, she won't bite back :) We got her when she was 10 months old and I'm so glad of that day! She'll always be my special puppy! :D 


  1. I think I finally have everyone straightened out now. ;) Great to "meet" you all!!!

    1. Haha, yeah, it can be confusing, can't it? :D

      Thank you, Faith! :)

  2. Awesome to learn about you and your family!

  3. I really enjoyed getting to "meet" you and your family! : )

    1. Thank you, Rebekah! Glad to know you like this page! :D

  4. Great page! It is fun to "meet" each one instead of only having a vague idea of what order they go in. :)

  5. So glad you put this up! :) Now I can (hopefully) remember what order you all are in. ;)
    Your family is a lot like ours! The only difference is that we have three girls first, not two. :) But the rest of the order is exactly how our family is, and the ages are really close too!

    1. O wow! That's really neat! :D Are you the oldest in your family?

      Thanks for commenting, Jesseca! :)

    2. Yes, I'm the oldest. :D I'm 17, then after me the ages are 14, 12, 11, 9, 8, 5 and then 4! :)

  6. What a wonderful family! It's so nice to meet all of you. Blessings!

  7. You have a lovely family! And I love the name of your blog, too. :)

  8. Your family looks so awesome!!! :D
    and Toblerone is just adorable. ;)

  9. I love reading about your family! Looks like you all would have fun times at your house :)


Hi! Thanks for stopping by! :)
I LOVE comments, so please do leave one! I will try and reply as soon as possible :D If you comment under Anonymous, please leave a name (it can be made up or real, your choice ;)
Oh, and as you all probably know, my family and I are under pseudonyms (you didn’t really think I had a brother named Spiderman or Ironman, did ya? We’re weird, but not 'that' weird! :P) If you do know our real names, please don’t say it in the comment box. Public safety stuff ;) Thanks!

Finally, brothers (and sisters!), whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things
