    holy smokes, i think i speak for the majority when i say your husband is completely covetable. oh and the kids are cute too!

  2. Diane says:

    Sigh. With you and your husband as parents, it’s no wonder the kids are so adorable!

  3. katie says:

    Ahhhh, I L-O-V-E to see happy families spending time together. Might be one of my favorite things on earth.

  4. Carolynn from Western Australia says:

    What is behind this picture Chris? :)

    The two of you look so fresh and young despite having 7 children. You are a very good looking family.

    Take Care and have a great weekend.

    Love Carolynn xx :)

  5. Karen Vogel says:

    Of course they look so fresh and young - children keep you young! At least, I keep telling myself that…

  6. genpoco says:

    lol..i just noticed Mile’s little dimple ( i was staring soley at Rob before ), i feel all your boys are going to be charmers - i feel for the boys that want to date their sister though!

  7. carrie says:

    No wonder you have so many kids - I don’t mean to be sarcastic but dang! You husband looks like a model! And the way the kids are looking at him is so endearing.

  8. Kellan says:

    What a great picture. Some pictures just capture all of it - don’t they.

  9. Maddy says:

    What a smile, there is a story behind that knowing look!! HHmmmmm????

  10. Kellie says:

    Is that your husband? I don’t think I’ve ever seen a pic of him before?! Damn….between you and him? No wonder your kids are so beautiful :)

  11. Diatribal says:

    That is absolutely precious. They look like they are plotting something!

  12. Joan says:

    Sorry, but I have to say it…Nice - very, very nice.

  13. sarah says:

    Look at those hands…….I’m a hands girl. Your husband? He’s got good hands. Damn, I just love your photos. Love love love them.

  14. Lovebabz says:

    HOT OMG! and your kids are cute too. I think posting his photo was/is a huge mistake–he may turn up missing and if he does…call the police in CT!

  15. Heather says:

    Super cute picture, love the smile he is trying to hide ;) Your hubbie resembles a very young Tommy Lee Jones! I think you should add pics of Rob to your flickr working closet pool, he is quite the dresser! LOL! Have a good weekend, Chris!

  16. MaryMargaret says:

    Your husband is seriously hot stuff, Chris! Wow, with you as their mom, and him as their dad–no wonder all your kids are gorgeous. I really love the look on your little girl’s face…. Oh, and Miles–oh, the dimple! You are very lucky, and I only envy you a little–well, maybe I need to go to Confession!!! (envy is a sin, I think) You might want to keep Rob from seeing these comments if you want him to be able to get through doors. Just sayin’.

  17. Lilly says:

    Yes, your husband is very handsome and the kids are gorgeous but what I want to know is what’s just outside the photo on the top left? What is the happy and slightly mischievous boy doing in the bg?

  18. Blake says:

    It is pictures like these that really capture a moment, you don’t even need to know what is going on but you still enjoy it. You take great pictures. Do you just carry your camera around your neck all day long?

  19. Jennifer says:

    PLEASE tell me that your husband just happens to have a brother who is single and lives in Minneapolis! Love your writing - thank you for sharing your daily life!

  20. MammaLoves says:

    He’s like rugged actor hot!! And those kids?!

    And you??!! Not just beautiful, but brilliant too.

    Makes me want to hate you. But then of course you have to be nice.

  21. Earl says:

    I think he looks like Paul Newman. Paul Newman many years ago. And it is a nice picture.

  22. MamaLady says:

    Like all the other ladies, I have coveted your man. But now, now! I realize that not only is he Hollywood handsome, and he fixes things, he dresses nice.
    Cute picture.

  23. Chandra says:

    This picture is wonderful and makes me smile so big. I love family time. It gives me the warm and fuzzy feeling :)
    Your hubby is such a cutie!

  24. Jennifer says:

    That’s awesome. Great picture, great title, great family. Your oldest son looks so much like your husband.

  25. Molly says:

    Um, YEAH! Your husband has gorgeous eyes. Now I know why you made seven children with him!!

  26. meredith says:

    Oh la la!!…as they say around here :)

  27. Karen says:

    Is the boy in the background giving your dh rabbit ears? B/c it looks like your dd is trying to mimic that too.
    Very nice picture. It says a whole lot!

  28. Lisa says:

    What a sweet picture! I love it!

  29. kate says:

    could your husband be any cuter. I think not! You have a beautiful family and looks like you all have so much fun!

  30. Crisanne says:

    I love the gleam in your kids’ eyes looking up at their Daddy!

  31. Cate says:

    Lord help the boy who ends up marrying your daughter. How will he ever measure up?

  32. peepnroosmom says:

    OK, your husband is very handsome. I’m with Jennifer, your oldest looks just like Rob.
    You have a beautiful family. Thanks for sharing with us.

  33. NMJ says:

    Aww. Great photo! Looks like baseball games (?) have at least a few redeeming qualities. :o)

  34. Catherine says:

    holy smokes, he is a babe - reading the comments I realized there were cute kids in the pic too :)

  35. Kate Brody says:

    tommy lee jones!!! you are married to tommy lee jones.
    (the kids are cute ,too) :)

  36. liz says:

    What they all said.

  37. InterstellarLass says:

    I still think he has a lot of qualities of Richard Gere a la “An Officer & A Gentleman”. You do have a drop-dead gorgeous family. Very lucky you are indeed!

  38. Suburban Turmoil says:


  39. Kristie says:

    Wow, not to be all “wanting my neighbor’s husband”, because you’re not actually my neighbor, or anywhere near the vacinity of my neighborhood, but wow, is he good looking or what??? That’s one nice gene pool you’ve got going there. Hope the game was fun, too!

  40. JESSICA says:

    your husband and you are wonderful people and yes i stared quite a bit at your hubby ..lol..sorry wow hes adorable..yes clearly your kids could not have been anything but adorable too. love your blog !

  41. Pave.Gurl says:

    I have to say, posts like this make me so happy for the human race. In a world where stuff like this is making headlines, the fact that your marriage thrives and brings you such joy is seriously uplifting to this thirty-something singleton.

    Thank you so much for sharing the gratitude you have for your family.

  42. qtpies7 says:

    I have to agree, its no wonder your kids are so cute!

  43. dcrmom says:

    THAT is a great picture. You always take great pix, but that just captures the event perfectly.

  44. Meg says:

    Holy crap he’s gorgeous!

    You really are an annoyingly attractive family!!!


  45. Brandi says:

    I’m with the Richard Gere a la Officer and a Gentleman faction. Rowl. Oh my gosh your children are adorable!

    I hope you can take all these positive comments and save them for a rainy day when you need a little pick-me-up :-)

  46. Erika says:

    um hell(o) your dh is a hottie.. LOL and he cooks, and cleans, and fixes things correctly. He also had a hand in making some gorgeous kiddos. You have the most gorgeous family Chris!

  47. Nicole says:

    Your husband is hot. HOT!!

  48. Not The Mama says:

    What an awesome photo.

  49. Jeana says:

    I love this picture.

  50. Dianna says:

    You take some of the best photos. I can’t wait to see what you can do with your new camera. Someday I hope to be able to take the same photo of my future husband and children.

  51. Anna says:

    I agree with Suburban. I wondered when I saw the picture how you got to meet Ah-nold. Does he know how very hot he looks?

  52. Alice says:

    Is it terribly wrong of me that the first time I comment on your blog is to tell you how incredibly beautiful your husband is?!?! I’ve been reading you for a few months, now… and love all your writing, your pics… everything! Incredible picture of your husband & kids - can’t wait to see more after the new camera arrives!

  53. anyjazz says:

    That is a perfect shot.

    It tells a story, sets a mood and brings a smile.

  54. Isabel Kallman says:

    I met him! I met Rob! He’s very handsome and looks like a more attractive Richard Gere.

    Can I still come over, again? I promise to behave.

  55. Chris says:


    My door is always open :-)

  56. GreenCanary says:

    Your hubby? ME-OW, woman! He’s a keeper.

  57. Tricia says:

    I keep finding myself scrolling back to this post- I’ll add another- He is a handsome fella!

  58. Eve says:

    I’m trying to remind myself how good looking my own husband is…PUT HIM AWAY PLEASE! HE’S HOT!!

  59. Lisa says:

    I’m sure you already know this but your husband is a dish!!!

  60. LammyAnn says:

    Oh. My. Yum.


  61. Rae says:

    Um, did you show Rob these comments? Will he be/is he insufferable about it? Just wondering :) Although I guess every man’s ego needs a boost once in a while.
