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!

No new posts this weekend...

We've spent the past several days dealing with the chicken pox....BLEH! No Fun! So I'm a little to busy to post anything real. I myself am feeling quite under the whether tonight too. That combined with the fact that my camera is going through a midlife crisis (it doesn't want to work and it recently had cosmetic surgery - Okay, so one of the kids got a hold of it!) pretty much sums up how mine and John's weekend went!

By the way Chicken Pox aren't that bad (for the adults)...The worst part about it is listening to your kids tell you how they feel just fine and want to out and play with their friends.

Hi. I found you through Leisha's blog and I just had to comment about people's public comments too. I have 4 quite close together and I get the same reaction quite frequently. We are done because I can't phisically have more but I hate telling people I'm done too because I wouldn't be if it was up to me. I don't want them to think that I WANT to be done. And it's none of thier business. So, I just wanted to tell you that I feel your pain. And I think that your family is beautiful. Maybe one day, I'll get my 8 through adoption or something. One can always hope. :)
