Cheaper by the Half-Dozen

Our Story

We are a rambunctious yet beautiful family of 8, one girl and five boys, two of which are twins. We have been here in Alaska for 3 years now and have enjoyed so many wonderful experiences. We are asking for help with presents for the kids, as we’ve dealt with a few losses in the family over this past year. It had made things a little difficult, and we just want to make sure our beautiful children get the Christmas they definitely deserve.

Number of Household Members: 8

Duty Station: JBER


Our Family’s Wish

Our wish is just some assistance with presents to put under our tree, to make their Christmas morning a little more brighter.

Our oldest is 17 years old, and is an avid reader. They absolutely love books by Neil Gaiman, but also loves anything Sci-Fi or fantasy.

Our next is our eldest son, 16, and is intelligent beyond his years. He enjoys anything science or tech related, and anything he has to build or program.

The next two boys are 14 and 12, and are obsessed with Legos, Star Wars, and 5 Nights at Freddy’s

The youngest are our twins. They are 5 and love everything learning related, especially Science and Nature. They also get so excited seeing magic tricks and even attempt little magic tricks of their own!

Any help would be absolutely appreciated, and be a blessing on our family this year. Thank you!
