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!

I can't believe it!Rose and Sarah truned 11 on the 18th! We would have had these pictures up sooner but we were having a little trouble with the computer. Nanna went all out and bought party favors including little horns that I hapliy sent home with her! Yes, the kids loved them... they will love blowing on them just as much at Nana's house!

Abbie took Sarahs horn and wouldn't give it back! Sarah was very nice about the whole thing! I don't know why, but some how it's become a family tradition of ours for the birthday child to try to fight daddy for a bigger pice with the first cut. So that's what the laughing in the picture below is about.
Since the first cut /piece goes to the birthday boy/girl you can understand how motivated the kids get!!!! Their birthday party will be in July at Shanni's house but this gave all of us the oppurtunity to celibrate their special day with them!

I can't believe your girls are going to be in YW next year! Are we old enough to have kids that age? Unreal! They are so beautiful. You guys are truly blessed.

PS you and John should keep an eye on my blog the next few days. I found some photos that are absolute gems!

Steph has me going through a box of mission photos that she plans to scrap book and I tripped across a picture of one of the girls as an infant wearing my boots. I cannot believe how much these girls have grown.
