The Official Re-introduction:

Gramma and Grandpa have 14 grandchildren.
For two years, I have used their birth order, as their blog nick-names. I thought this would be easy for
(at least the family!) to remember. It most definitely WAS NOT easy, for even their parents.
Sooo... today EVERYONE gets a nickname!!
Every name, originates from a portion of their actual given name. Therefore, if their parents do not like the new nicknames... well.... I guess, you should have considered future blog monikers when you filled out that birth certificate. Not my fault!
Side Note:
Nearly every name, has an Irish/Catholic background.
(FYI- My children will remain the same.)

One's name will remain. If there was anyone, convinced that he is Number One.. it's this kid.

The research you did for these blog names is probably more time than you ever spent on researching a term paper.
I do love the names. I think Galway Girl is the weakest. That girl radiates beauty and energy. She needed something BIGGER!

My voice even changes when I quote that line, which is probably more than one person should. I love GlenAlen Hill, he was a monster. Literally, I think he really is a monster.
