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!

Earning my stripes!

Today, I spent three hours getting my hair done while John kept all the kids! I am so excited! I have wanted this kind of highlighting for years and finally broke down and had it done... after my darling mother-in-law strongly encouraged it! Then she brought the twins to the mall to meet me for lunch and to do a little shopping!!!! Note the new shirt! I can't even tell you the last time I had so much fun!!!! Thanks Mary! You're amazing!

Wow! Looks great! I have always wanted to do highlights too, but have been too nervous to do it! It looks and sounds like you had a really fun day!
