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!

See what happens when you play with knives?

Not wanting to waist 13 hours of our lives at the ER, (not to mention $100.00) we opted NOT to go to the hospital for this cut. Our dear Hannah decided to copy her older brother and cut a carrot. She cut her thumb instead! The bandage makes it look a lot worse than it really is. It just wouldn't stop splitting open and bleeding again. Also, it's right on the tip of the thumb witch makes keeping the bandage on a little more difficult than normal...Hence the tape around her whole hand.
All in all she's taken it pretty well (except for the normal "I'm gonna die" type scream that she does every time a new cut arrives) She tells all of her brothers and sisters "I got uh owie!" when ever she wants sympathy and they are happy to oblige!
