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!

Remember Estrella?

This is her when she was only 3 days old! Three other babies had already died. So I syringe fed her. When she and the other babies were only two weeks old her mother passed away! Then we began doing the same with all of them. We managed to save 4 of them (Estrella included). It's hard to believe that she was ever so tiny!

Now here she is at 2 months! She has good type and a nice semi arch... when her feet aren't slipping out from under her! She is just about the sweetest rabbit! The fact that she was a Flemish lended toward a naturally gentle disposition anyway. The fact that she was bottle raised only made her more sweet!
