Table Places!

At the dining room table we all (all ten) sit! Now we all sit down to all three meals at the same time so we all have to have seating arrangements!

Mommy came up with this idea! She seated us all beside people that we could help i.e. older kids by young kids!!!
Anyway! Then every month everyone rotates one seat to the left! That way each of us gets several chances to sit beside Mommy and Daddy! It works really well!

Filming Photos!

The elegant gown and the turquoise flip-flops!!!

Posing for the camera

Michael a.k.a. Andrew setting up the camera

Andrew looking out!

Lizzy with her beast!

Lady King with her dog and Rachel's dog.
Riley is Rachel's. He is the small b/w one.
And Erin's is the large one named Choco!

Mrs. Pritchett, Baby Pritchett, Mr. Pritchett, and Miss Lizzy!

Surely you are not photographing me?

Rebekah Long dances through the grass!


We go visit friends or go shopping at Sam's Club a lot so...

When we all get in the car and everyone is seated Mommy or Daddy say, "count off!". And we all count off! In birth order (oldest to youngest) we scream the number in which we were born!

I (Oldest Sister) being the oldest go first and yell, "one"! Then Second Sister with two, Third Sister with three, and so on!

It is the best way to insure that everyone is in the car safe and sound. This is great especially on nights when we have stayed late at someone's house and it is to dark to see!

Now you might ask, what about Baby Brother! He is only 16 months old! How does he know to scream eight at the right time? He doesn't. Third Sister or Older Brother who sit on either side of him in the car have to be touching him on the body and then they scream eight!

Jamie's Turtle

Our turtle was very scared because WE WERE VERY LOUD!!!!We tried to draw it, but it always goes back in its little tunnel ! We took it out in the yard and watched it crawl around in the yard!
Then I had to go put it back In The woods.
And a couple days later We found another turtle .and We took that one to church! Everybody laughed And laughed We tried to be quiet
But WE All gave up'!
SOON We had to Go home And Let it Go Home! Sarah was very Sad because SHE LOVE'S TURTLE'S!!!

The dinner table

Jamie (Rachel) learning her lines!
Note: I do have a sister named Rachel, but this one is her name in the movie!

Sarah as (Rebekah)!

Ryan as Nathan Long!
Nathan in a fun mood!

Nathan in a serious mood!
Most of kids in this movie are named after one of my favorite series, The Drums of War. Hence: Nathan, Laura, Andrew, and Sarah!

Rachel (in the movie)


Laura and Lizzy setting up for me!

Three of my seven precious siblings!
I am the first of eight!

Lady King

Tired and sick.
We all have a slight cold!
Most people would think they were bored, but our life is never boring!

Lizzy learning lines!

This is Lizzy's desk when her family moves out of the upper class (gentry) and into the middling class!

Did they have electrical sockets, door stopper thingys, and doors that looked like that? I don't think so!

The Dining Room Scene!

Well yesterday we filmed one scene! That may sound really wimpy, but it had everyone in it and it was crazy. We all have a bad cold so for the rest of the day I lay on the sofa with a very small fever, but today I am back up! Picture will come in a few moments!
