I'm in love!

So Navin is SEVENTH of TEN brothers and sisters. So obviously he has a lot of nieces and nephews! Since I am the oldest and have no nieces or nephews, I have acquired many from Navin's side! I just love them so much!! I love that I am an AUNTIE now! It is so much fun. I love being able to spend time with them. Everyday after church we have a herd of kids asking us if they can come with us. It is so sad when they leave cause we get a few criers. I love being the cool aunt and uncle that the kids want to hang with. We have even had six at once spend the night in our tinny little apartment! The first time we let them spend the night we had a bed wetter. So the next time they spent the night, we bought Goodnight Pampers and had three of the potential bad wetters wear them. They were actually very good about it. It also worked out for us too cause it was a lot less laundry to do the next day. Now they always ask me to make pancakes with my homemade syrup. They love that stuff and so does Navin cause that is usually the only time I make them. 
Anyway, so if you haven't noticed, I love to post pictures. So here are some pictures of just a few of the many kids in our family! 

This is Joseph! He loves bananas! 
This is Nathan at our wedding blowing bubbles! He has always been really close with Navin! He is such a sweetie and full of love! 
Loryn, he has the funniest personality!
Colin, another very sweet boy!
Hailey, one of the few girls in the family! She is small and trendy! We absolutely love this girl!
Loryn and I
Andrew helping me make pancakes or as he says, "pan-a-cakes." He woke me up at six in the morning, on a Saturday, after a long night, cause he really wanted my pancakes! 
This is when they spent the night for the first time. Hailey, Gabe, Andrew, and Jared. 
This is Courtney. She is super spunky and has a million different hobbies!!
