About Me

My photo
I am a 29-ish yr old married mother of 8. My family is my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. My darling husband is my very best friend and together we are raising 8 of the best kids in the world! They are Rose(12) Sarah(12) Ammon(10) Malachi(8) Gabriel(7) Hannah(5) Maggie(4) and Abbie(3) We currently own 2 dogs, 1 bird, 5 chinchillas, 1,000,000 rabbits, 1 cat, 4.5 horses, and one ferret. We just purchased a home that is definately a "fixer-upper", with land and room for the kids to roam. Our goal is to run a mostly self sustaining farm and live in peace as we grow as a strong family unit. We have seen our fair share of hardships, but we are thankful for the many blessings the Lord gives us on a regular basis!

Just Loving the Day!

When I was a kid my absolute favorite movie was Bambi!

Now...as I sit here sit here I can here my children squeel with delight as Bambi and Thumper jump through the field and meet Flower (the skunk)... I love IT!!! It's kind of one of those teary moments. I love how amazed my children are at the art in the movie! My two oldest were just discussing with my husband how an animated film like this takes so many people to make it. I love that my children (YES, EVEN THE OLDER ONES) are so pure and Innocent that a movie like Bambi can truly entertain them.

Any way, today was just one of those nice days. I've really been needing one too. Minimal whining from children, happiness, and lots and lots of sunshine! It seemed as though all of our kids were better so we took a walk to the park. The kids played and played. John and I even got to play a little basket ball. It was more like two out of shape goofballs trying to get the basket ball in the hoop...but it was fun anyway.

My mother in law showed up with gifts for the kiddies today! She bought all of them coordinating Easter outfit. YIPEE! She got the boys each a yellow dress shirt with a blue striped tie and the twins got matching pink dresses and the three younger ones got pink dresses too. She also bout khaki pants for Ammon and Malachi (Gabie has plenty) I'm scheduling pictures next week!!!!!

On a sad note...It seems that we are NOT over the colds. BLEH! We got home and a couple of children were complaining about being cold. Uh Oh! Fevers were coming up and noses were getting clogged. I too am drugged up pretty good in order to save my poor nose from as much tissue rubbing as possible.

Well I just wanted to share my nice day with every one (but not our colds) I'll write again soon!

I'm excited to see Easter pics, too. I'm jealous of your sunshine. Travis and I enjoy playing tennis together when the weather's nice. But like you said, it's more like two out of shape people chasing a bright yellow ball all over the court and swatting the air with racquets. But of course, in Idaho, our tennis time is limited. I can't wait to see the ground again.

Hope you're all feeling better soon.

Is there anything better than coordinated Easter outfits? I'm still trying to find something for little Cubby to wear that matches with the older boys. Your kids are so cute, can't wait to see them all dressed up for Easter!
