Who Dun It... this time?

So as I may have mentioned in the past-my kids feel there are many benefits to being in a large family. While some people are concerned that children in big families may not get enough one on one time or enough personal space- what they fail to recognize are the benefits of being in a big family. Benefits like lots of support, lots of love, always someone to play with, always someone to talk to... and always someone to blame things on.

Benefits.

Huge benefits....

especially when something like this...

is left sitting on my living room floor-

and no one wants to fess up to it.

So what does a good mommy of many do?

Why, she lines them up and interrogates them, of course.

From the smallest to the tallest.

Nobody is off the hook- until proven INNOCENT.

And because sometimes figuring out who 'dun it' takes a lot of detective work this is where YOU, my jury, comes into play.

You see, they all claim innocence... You know, batting big, beautiful, angelic looking eyes at me and saying in those sweet little voices "wasn't me mommy"...

I can't see past their cuteness- and they know it.

So, I need for you to case your vote on who you think 'dun it' so we can get to the bottom of this. Now, Keegan has an alibi so he is safe this time...

so let's begin with....

Culprit #1 "Wasn't me Havyn"
Age 1- cute as a button
Known for having us all wrapped around her little finger.
Often found toddling around the house getting into absolutely everything.


Culprit #2 "Wasn't me Carson"

Age 3- and as adorable as they come
Known for having the longest eye lashes humanly possible and he isn't afraid to use them. Often found at this brothers side masterminding their next move.


Culprit #3 "Wasn't me Kaden"
Age 4- personality that will knock your socks off.
Known for his speed, agility and clever tactics.
Often found at his brothers side charming the pants off of other around him.


Culprit #4 "Wasn't me Aleigha"
Age 7- AKA The Princess
Known for her sneakiness and crafty ways of getting the others to do exactly what she wants. Often found listening to music, reading, playing dress up and getting into everyone elses business.

Culprit#5 "Wasn't me Mya"

Age 8- and as sweet syrup.
Known for her helpfulness and kind heart- but do not let the puppy dog eyes fool you.
Often found drawing pictures, mothering her younger siblings or playing soccer.

..

Culprit #6 "Wasn't Me Kallan"
Age 14- known for his sly smile and flirtatious moves.Creative, quiet and a deep thinker.
A behind the scenes kind of guy.
Often found texting, practicing the guitar or tormenting his younger siblings.


Culprit #7 "Wasn't me Addisyn"

Age 15- and wise beyond her years.
Strong, creative, beautiful and independent.
Known for her compassionate heart for the least of these and her serving nature.
Often found on facebook or reading blogs. Enjoys eave dropping and visiting foreign countries.
Now help me out and go cast your vote on who 'dun it'.
Until the verdict is in...

Ohhhh, you do have a tough job ahead of you, don't you? ;) My vote would have to be for one of the too-cute little ones "often found at his brother's side..." :)

247Mama said...

LOL! I would have to vote for a combined effort between #2 and #3! :)

Mandie M. said...

my vote is for #6, only because I have 2 brothers and they STILL broke stuff at age 14 ;)... maybe even more stuff!!

Our baby boy turns 1 in Ethiopia today! We get to meet him in 24 days!

BrandiB said...

My call is a combination of cuties #2 and #3! This just made me laugh out loud!

Chantelle said...

My money is on #2 (with a side of #3) ;)

[awesome post!]

Polly said...

I think 2 and 3 are your culprits BUT I have a feeling they are masterminding a plan to put the blame on 1 because they underestimate her ability to defend herself. Good luck is all I can say : )

Andrea said...

Too too funny! I'd let the teenagers off the hook. I think they wouldn't pass blame unto those sweet baby faces. My vote is for 2, that sweet face is hiding something. Also, you have the most beautiful children!!!!!

Rachel said...

I'd have to say #3. The expression on his face looks like trouble! :)

Kristin said...

My vote is for the girls, #4 and #5, just cause they're getting left out! Poor babies!

Anonymous said...

I think it's a complot, all they worked togueter hahaha, they are sibling, aren't they?.
But you should question number 3 and 6 they have information.

Joy: said...

It was #2 and #3. They are toooo happy!

Dardi said...

I think the dog did it!!

Scrappy quilter said...

Well with those sweet looks, I'm not even going to try. It's going to be interesting to see what the answer is. Hugs

missy said...

i think it was your husband. ;)

they are all so stinkin' cute! it was encouraging to know that blame-shifting and lack of fessing up happens in other homes as well. you just have more culprits to choose from!

Jami said...

Hilarious!! I have to go with Carson and Kaden - they look the most suspicious to me!! I'm guessing a team effort!! :)

Treasures Evermore said...

My vote is #1...so easy for little ones to crawl around and knock things over...unless it was sitting somewhere too high for her to reach...then I will vote #2 &3 possibly together.

Oh they all have beautiful eyes...maybe it was "dad" LOL...

Can't wait to find out.

The Zoo Keeper-ette said...

I vote for the DOG :)!! And if you don't have one, then the IMAGINARY DOG did it !!!!! Too funny!

Amy said...

Just so you guys all know they are jumping up and down and cheering when they get a vote! Hee/Hee Too cute!

Christie said...

Oh my goodness! Love their faces, especially Kaden and Carson, they look pretty "suspicious"!! Lol, lots of love going around that house; what blessings...even when they don't fess up :)

Melani said...

Number 5 is the vote from our house!

Anonymous said...

My vote is Mckella, the dog, dun it...because NOT ONE of those beauties would have done such a thing! :)

Heather

Rossana said...

I say #2, three yr olds are like that! Lol

Lexi said...

haha this is hilarious! I'm letting Addie (is she wearing hand-cuffs??) and Kallan off the hook, but I'm totally stuck on who 'dun' it. Naomi is usally the culprit in our house..but I just can't blame that precious Havyn. Hmmm...I'm going to have to go with #4.

Anonymous said...

What a great read! LOL. I'm with the dog theory....real or imagined!

Emily said...

I think it was Daddy Block!

Rebekah said...

Does Dad have an alibi? ;)

Shanny said...

I agree with several of the others...your husband had to of done it. None of those cutie pies could have possibly done such a thing!!! :)

Phyllis said...

This is probably why Kristen wants a sister. If something's broken at my house, she can't blame it on anybody else :)
Hmmmm...this is a tough one. 1, 2 and 3 seem the most obvious choices, and I picked 4 last time so I can't blame her again :) I'm going to say it was 5, so sweet but practicing soccer inside will sometimes result in things getting broken. But 6 & 7 aren't off the hook...I think they're covering for her. Just look at their mug shots!!

Mom to 9 Blessings! said...

i'm with lexi this is TOTALLY a riot! HA HA HA! we do this in our home too - just never made it public! LOVE IT!

i think #3 or 4.

love them all!

hugs to you sweet friend!

Courtney said...

I'm thinking the 3 youngest girlies are in this one together. :)

Deborah said...

Do you have a dog or cat? Maybe it was them. Kids are to cute to be guilty. lol

Jean said...

If your 1-year old is like mine, that's my guess. :) But she's only 1 so she didn't know yet, right??? That's what I keep telling myself.

Kristen:) said...

Kaden did it! :) or since Keegan is not on here I bet he secretly did it somehow.

Brooke and Brian said...

I vote For sweetie # 1!

Future Mama said...

HAHA! LOVE this post. I'm thinking #2 is looking pretty guilty... ;-)

Much love,
Future Mama

ndagukunda said...

I agree with a 2&3 combo!

Charlow Family said...

I vote for Kaden! That sly smirk on his face says he's up to something :)

Anonymous said...

Well... as I was a mischeivious child and wouldn't dare ever tell I did it...I know the eyes, the look. So my vote is for sweet Aleigha and Mya is covering for her(Mya looks just like my sister did when I swore I'd thump her if she told I did it) :) Just sayin'... Good luck on this mystery. You could use my Mom's line "I may not know who did it but God does" Whew that always got me :) Good news is that Mommies and God always forgive us when we repent :) Angi Cooper

Amy:
I say it is those anonymous children "not me" "I didn't do it"o
"I don't know" They have been known to frequent my house and have now moved to yours.Your children are definitely too beautiful to have done anything like that so I say blame it on the above listed people.

God's Princess said...

I'd say Kaden, just look at his expression. Definetly guilty...........:-)

Shannon said...

It was Daddy.

Sophie said...

This is too funny! My gut is telling me it's that cute little Carson, but please go easy on him mom he is too precious for words!

Jules said...

Yep, 2 & 3 together. Too funny!

Jules

acox26 said...

I say it was mommy! :)

Amber said...

Uh, oh...I'm so sorry Havyn...I have to put my bet on your sweet face!! "in to everything..." Rut-ro!! ha ha

Your kids are all so stinkin' cute! This post was so fun and funny!!

Christi said...

haha... such a cute post and cute photos!
I vote for Todd.. :) wasn't he scurrying around packing last minute items and leaving for Guate this morning?? :)

love you!

Amber said...

Sorry, Havyn...I think it was you sweet girl! :) Just because of her age, that is.

However, Kaden looks so funny, er...I mean HARD CORE! :0) His pic made me giggle!!

Hugs,
AmberK

Good luck finding who dun it!

Rachael. said...

I agree I say Momma did it :)

Hmm I think one of the adorable boys did it, or the sweet toddling one year old!!

MnM said...

Block #6... it's always the quiet ones... ;)

Kristen:) said...

Addisyn said for me to vote for her so I also vote for her!

*Overflowing* said...

HILARIOUS!!! There is no way I could choose but I have my suspicions because we have a similar line up over here at our house :)

Diana said...

I say..... a GROUP conspiracy - for sure!! I vote for #1-5.
They all deserve some sort of "prize" for great "mug shots"!!

Lots of LAUGHS at your house today - so fun!!

Julie said...

Didn't the wind blow it over???? They are all so cute, they must all be innocent!

*Overflowing* said...

Oh dear...your words on my blog are sooo sweet!!! We must be able to chat here's my email: weareachinabound@gmail.com

Hugs mama...stacy

Anonymous said...

Not my grandkids!!! I think the wind blew it over or it fell when someone just ran by.

shelley said...

I am going with combination of Kaden and Carson. They look like quite the team!

Wendy :) said...

Voting for "Into Everything' Havyn with all her cuteness:)

Mama D.'s Dozen said...

Too funny!

My vote is for Kallan. I have had a few teen boys in my house, and I know that accidents do happen. And, with all of the adorable youngsters to pass the blame to, Kallan knows that they won't get in nearly as much trouble as he would.

Yep. Sweet, innocent,quiet Kallan. He's the guy you're looking for.

Sorry Addisyn. Doesn't look like anyone is voting for you. You are so much like my sweet Hosanna ... I KNOW that you would have fessed up if it was you.

Love you all ... guilty or innocent.

Laurel :)

Gabriella Nicole Ocanas{Gabby} said...

Hmmm maybe sweet lil Havyn:-) but I know it's not my sweet Mya:) hmmm sooo maybe Kallan and Aleigha and Kaden and Carson;) hah

Positively Orphaned said...

Oh, you didn't want that ol' thing anyway ;) Funny blogger.

Deb said...

ah ahahaha. Greatness. Love it. Soooo, who done it???

Andrea H. said...

haha and did you notice your Kaden got the LL Cool J lip thing going on? You better watch out mama, your gonna have some trouble on your hands when he gets older, lol:)

Andrea H. said...

Oopsie, meant Carson.

Nance said...

We have the whole family (10 kids) here deciding.....to funny!!!
Husband thinks block 3 is wanting his lawyer! His verdict is 3. Mine is for 4. My little kids say 5,6, or 7. My big kids say 1 or 2! So sorry to say its a hung jury here at the Fritz Farm!!!! You must drop ALL charges and set them free!

Rachel Hopkins said...

There's no way my "kissing" Carson did that! I say Havyn, or Kaden. They have "the look!" That was an AwEsOmE post! I miss you being our Sunday School teacher! I love you!!
