"The Boys"

From September 1992 through April 1997, between Anna Beth and Quinna, there were nine male grandchildren born in a row into the Ken and Nancy White family.

Eleven and a half years ago when they ranged in age from 5 1/3 years to 8 1/2 months I watched all nine of them (the youngest, mine, was a nursing baby) while everyone went on a sleigh ride. I remember thinking at the time, "If I think it's crazy now just wait until they're all teenagers!"

Well, they almost all are (eight more months) and when they all got together earlier this month it WAS a bit crazy. See for yourself.

OK, so they can be pretty normal too. From oldest to youngest, top right to bottom left: Patrick, Seth, Troy, Brett, Shane, Paul Michael, Kent, Jonathan, and Bryce.
