MEET MY FAMILY

THE HUTCHINS'
(This picture was taken 2 years ago. Some people are missing.)
Many of you have asked about my (rather larger) family. Here they are, in order!
*Amy Jo is my oldest sibling (twin to Jenny). She's married to Jarrod and they have 6 boys.
~~~~~
*Jenny is married to Roger and they have 3 boys and 3 girls.
~~~~~
*Rich is married to Kelly and they have 10 children. 5 boys and 5 girls.
~~~~~
*Aaron is married to Rachael and they have 3 girls.
~~~~~
*(I fall next but you already know me)
~~~~~
*Ben is my twin and he's married to Joy. They have 5 children, their oldest being boy/girl twins.
~~~~~
*Zach is the baby of the family. He's married to Alana and they have 2 boys.
~~~~~
*Tina joined our family at 4 and is living in Utah.
~~~~~
*Jeannette joined our family at 15 and is married to James.
~~~~~
*Laurabeth joined our family at 14 and is living in Canada with her family.
These two amazing people started it all. They are our parents. Converts in their 20's. Can you believe the legacy they have created? Not a day goes by where I do not thank my Heavenly Father for the courage that my parent's had to join the church. Our lives have been incredibly blessed because of that decision they made 40 years ago. Thanks Mom and Dad!

Awesome picture of an awesome family. My life has been made better for simply knowing this family (the first two generations anyway) and for the love and guidance from them. Priscilla was the first teacher to institute the "No Child Left Behind Act" when she brought seminary to my bedroom, when I slept in and didn't show up. There are hundreds of stories from how everyone of the Huthins have touched and bettered other people around them.
They are the poster family for love and compassion.

If it weren't for this family, I wouldn't have joined the church and married and had children. We're just so grateful to your parents too!!

How fun! I didn't know that you were a twin. I knew your mom had two sets of twins but I didn't know which siblings were very close from the beginning. I have identical twin boys, and it is so much fun. Your family is beautiful, I can't believe how much your children have grown. The last time I saw you Ben was just a baby, It goes by too fast!
