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!

John called me this morning. He only said a few words but I knew exactly what they meant...
John: "I need you to sit down"
Me: "Oh my Gosh, you lost your job!"
No warning. The only reason is that the company needs to down size. His boss "plans to help him transition" what ever that means.
We haven't quite decided what to do yet but I will keep you updated.
Prayer would be nice... Thanks.
