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!

Happy Birthday Ammon!

You can't get much brighter than Ammon's sweet smile!

For those of you who don't know, Ammon turned 8 on September 2! I can't believe it! He is getting soooo big! He is so shy with every one, and rarely speaks to people out side our home but around here he is just one of the crew!He is the perfect big brother! He is enjoying reading and playing a lot of video games lately. (Doctors orders) He's not allowed to run around to much or tire himself out until we get his seizures under control!
We've put off his baptism until December. We were all to sick in September.
Ammon chose an "under water" theme for his party! We had a little trouble finding the decorations we needed but we lucked out with luau stuff on clearance!
I cannot tell you how much it pleases me to see him genuinely excited about something. He rarely asks for anything and is always so subdued that it was a real treat to see him so thrilled with his party!
We tried to make the house feel like we were under water! So we used a lot of blue and green! Ammon's favorite touch was all of the "bubbles" on the table. Funny thing...They tasted an awful lot like those white m&ms you buy for weddings!

We couldn't find any cakes to go with his theme so I bought a bunch of mini animals and ordered a Sponge Bob cake with out the characters!He loved it!

We also blew up about 150 balloons! We made an ocean out of the trampoline. We were going to divide everyone up into two groups and let them have a contest to see which team could pop the most, but it was so hot that the balloons were all popping on their own! So they just bounced on the tramp until they were out of balloons.
