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!

Ammon's baptism

Even though Ammon turned 8 in September, he had not been able to be baptised because we all got so sick the day before his scheduled day. He was so happy when his day finally came!
John, of course, was the one who baptised him. Jedidiah and Paul Schween witnessed. Nana and Papa both came! It was great to be able to have them BOTH for Ammon's special day!!!! The primary presidency gave him a cute little book with his picture and a copy of his testimony that he had written. We are so very proud of him. He is just one of the sweetest most giving boys you could ever know!
This is the whole gang gathered for a quick photo session after the baptism. Papa had already left to get back to Mini Nana so he couldn't be in them.
After we all had lunch and got our clothes changed we went to the zoo for the rest of the day! Then we got to stay for the Zoo Lights and dinner because it was also the day of Daddy's office party.
