- 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!

Hannah woke up yesterday with a stomach flu but by mid afternoon she was ready to party!!! She was so excited! I love that she couldn't help but eat the icing as she was trying to "help" I'm glad I thought to give her her own plate of icing... there was a LOT of double dipping going on there!!!!

We're hoping she won't remember. She's been counting down the days! She woke up at 3 this morning with the stomach flu. She can't even hold down water or pedialite... so birthday cake is out of the question! Poor Baby!!!
I can't believe how big she is. When we first moved out here she wasn't even walking yet! Now she is the girliest girl you will ever meet! Every thing she wears is pink and every thing she likes has to do with princesses, dress up, or being a big girl!
Happy Birthday Hannah Banana! We love you!

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!
