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 for Laughs...

... I thought I'd let you know that I experienced one of the most embarrassing moments in my mothering yet!

The other night we were at the Rainforest Cafe with my sister, her husband and their two girls. All went pretty well except for the fact that my Hannah and Shannon's Kira were afraid of the storms.

Any way, as we were leaving my Gabriel walked over to another table, smiled sweetly, leaned down and licked a chip on a man's plate! I thought I was going to DIE! The people at the table took it well and even offered him the chip that his tongue had touched!

I offered to pay for their meal but they just laughed and said it was okay. The two tables near by were laughing as well! One guy teared up! I did too but NOT because I thought it was funny!

In hind sight it is pretty funny but I must admit that at the time I would have paid someone else to claim him as their child!

Okay, this is why I don't get children. Can mine just stay a baby forever, please?

You just have to wonder, "What brought that on?"

I love it! I would totally do the same thing, but alas I'm not as little and cute as your little man!
