Daniel is Scott and Cathy's 3-year-old, brother of Sarah and half-brother of Cari. There's nothing like blowing bubbles and then getting the soap all over -- makes for a clean face.  Click here for more Daniel pictures. Daniel, 19K JPG
Zander, 54K GIF Zander is Charles and Sandy's 2-year-old, brother of Josh and half-brother of Mel. Click here for more pictures of the Z-man, mostly from his second birthday party.

It's not often that these kids are all in the same place at the same time -- and even rarer that they are all in the same picture. This was taken Thanksgiving 1998, with all seven grandchildren and four of their second cousins. Back row, L to R, Remington, J.D., Josh, Mel, Ian. Front row, Cari, Rachel, Sarah, Angela, Zander, Daniel.
Ta-da! Grandchild number 8 has just arrived! Benjamin is the new brother of Mel, Josh, and Zander. In this picture he is just hours old, lying on Sandy's lap in the birthing center. Click here for more pictures of Benjamin.
