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!

Having 10 Children in the house can get exhausting! But I'll be honest with you I haven't been this happy in months! This visit has brought back so many memories from my child hood. Good memories! I've really needed this! The kids have really needed the love and companionship that cousins offer! I can't wait until we can get Frankie here then the group will be complete! Shannon and I have barely seen Hannah and Kira because the two of them are always off playing and Jabyn is sch a joy to have! She's been playing with the girls and steeling babies every chance she gets!
It was so sweet to see the kids greet each other when they arrived it was filled with hugs and hellos and lost of squeals!
My very favorite part was when Hannah ran out yelling, "Kira! Kira! Wheres my Kira!?!" I am also getting a kick out of how much Maggie likes Shannon! She follows her around expecting to be held constantly. It's sooo cute! Sweet little Abbie is just
taking it all in. She is happy to have the extra attention and love. It's all just so ...(sigh)...nice!

First off, say hi to your sister and tell her she's missed back here.

Then I wanted to let you know that I tagged you in a meme. Come check it out and then give it a try.

I'm jealous! Wish I could be there too! And tell Maggie she just has Shannon confused with Aunt Missy! LOL
