Over Christmas Break my Mom gave this to me. I am in love with it. She got it at a Garage Sale in Boston when I was a baby and it has hung in her house ever since. It is a reminder of what is really important to me as a mom, and of what an amazing mother I have. Sam said his Mom has this exact same cross stitch. I don't know if it is a really popular cross stitch of the 70's or if it is just another example of the Hirt/Nelson phenomenon. If you are not familiar with this phenom, here are some examples.
10 kids: 5 girls/5 boys
Oldest half: 4 girls and a boy
Youngest half: 4 boys and a girl
Both families have an Annie, Katherine, and Sam.
The Katherine and Sam are in the same birth order, 5th and 6th.
The 3rd boy/7th Child in both families have the middle name David. (my 3rd boy
now has the middle name David.)
The 5th Girl/9th Child both have the middle name Elizabeth.
My Dad and Brother's name is James/Sam and His Dad's Middle names are James.
I am pretty sure Sam and I were MTB!
