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!

Creatures, Creatures Every Where!

Okay it wouldn't be fair to end this night without introducing you to our latest addition to the family so here she is...

This is Olivia. "Livy" for short! Ammon has wanted a lizard for over a year now and things just worked out perfectly with this precious little girl! Weird to talk about a lizard a precious but no joke, she REALLY is sweet! She loves to be held and petted! She takes food right out of your hand and can even walk on a leash!

Livy is a bearded dragon (a species native to Australia, Will) and is just about full grown. from nose to tale she is about the same as Abby from head to hiny! She feeds on Romain lettuce (that's how she gets her water) carrots and crickets. Grasshoppers are her chocolate though! The previous owner seemed quite sad to give her up but was full of information about her. I should have taken notes!

Ammon is thrilled. He was a little nervous about holding her at first but he's just fine with her now. I took some video of them together but, some how, my camera messed it up. I'm sure you'll be seeing more of her.

Notice her tail doesn't end until well past his elbow! She's a big girl! Congratulations Ammon!!!!
