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!

A Little On Women...

Forcing my husband and nephew to watch a show on TLC about wedding cakes sure can bring up interesting conversation.

In the middle of this particular show the woman making the cake explained how she normally tries to focus on what the bride wants for her cake and she pretty much tunes the groom out, because "...after all, this is HER day!"

Jedidiah seemed to be a little irritated by this comment and he started talking about how it's "BOTH of their day" and blah blah blah...

John, who up until this point, had his face buried in his lap top "working", said, "Jed your WRONG. It's the BRIDES day."

Jed began to try to plead his case. At which point John cut him off.

"Let me put it to you this way, Jed. How long have you been planning your wedding?"

"Huh?" The confused look on Jeds face said it all.

Then John turned to my 10-yr-old. "Rose have you thought much about your wedding?"

Rose's eyes lit up."You mean the colors? I want red and gold, and I think I want horses involved some how, but I'm not sure where because of the temple."

Sarah added "I want green and silver!"

John smiled and turned back to Jed. "I rest my case."

The conversation was over... except for a high five and a little praise for John from yours truly!

When did John get so wise? Solomon (sp?) has nothing on him.
