Which size Dutch oven is best?

Help! I want to order (online) a Le Creuset dutch oven but need help determining which size will be best. I am cooking for my growing family (4 boys, two of whom are either married or about to be, plus my husband and the occasional guest) and often wish I had something big enough to handle a large roasting chicken or cut of beef - figure about 6-8 lbs of meat.

My question is which size will be big enough to handle the meat and any veggies, plus liquids? Is 6 qt enough, or 7...? I want to avoid getting something too small. Which sizes work for those of you who cook for larger families?
