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!

Here's how it goes...

Malachi: I have a bloody nose.
Me: Quit picking it. (with out turning to look)
Malachi: Okay...Uh, Is this enough to stain a wall?
(enter blood soaked tissue...note blood spatter on clothing and blood covered hands)
Me: Is there blood on my wall?
Malachi: No...(looking very thoughtful) just on mine.
Me: Why is there blood on your wall!?!
Malachi: Because I drew a picture.
Me: With blood?!
Malachi: Yeah! I wanted it to look like a battle like at the Renaissance Festival. (sweet toothless smile)

Note: There are no pictures because I did NOT want a repeat, and nothing gets a good encore like a photo op! Just know that it was gross!!!!

PS This is why we stock up on Clorox Wipes and Magic Erasers!
