Update

Here I am- 100 lbs lost! Woo Hoo! It has been a long while since I updated. The kids are all growing up as you can see. We have also added another teenager to our home- Brittany. She is a welcome addition and has captured my heart. So Eimi will be 17 this week, Brittany turned 16 in January, Jacob turned 15 in December, Samuel will be 12 in May, Aaron will be 10 in June, Matthew turned 6 in November, Andrew will be 4 in May. Jeff and I celebrated 20 years in November. I am now a certified raw food chef. Working out the details about what I want to do with it. I want to help people to get healthy, so they can serve God to the best of their ability. Jeff is doing well, business could be better but we are fairing better than most. Kids are doing great in school. Not much else different. Life is always busy..

Tomatoes


Today we got about 10 cases of tomatoes given to us. After taking them out of their packages this is what I ended up with. Lots of lots of salsa will be made! We also got abotu 25 mini watermelons and 14 cases of tortilla chips.. What a blessing. Thank you Lord!

Outdoor bed

Matty went missing.. well not really missing, we knew he was outside playing with his brother but brother came in. A few minutes later Aaron said "Matty is still outside." He went running off to check on his best bud... he comes back a few moments later "Mom, Matty is asleep." Outside! Asleep... Off we ran with camera in hand.. He was indeed asleep in the little bed Aaron had made in his little fort. He didn't want to come in.. He sure looked cute..

The new house


Excuse the mess but this is the house we will be moving into in August. The bedrooms are much bigger and we are gaining a bedroom to split up the boys- they are excited about this. There is less land but more usable than we have now..
Side yard where the pool will go

Front, upper deck is off of the master bedroom/craft room

smaller kitchen than I have now but bigger fridge, nicer sink and oven- oh! a garbage disposal!

hot tub (yay!) and back yard for garden and chickens!

This is one of the kids rooms- they are all 16x16 compared to 11x12 and 10x14 that they have now. They are getting a lot more space. Though mom gets above the closets for storage as there is not any closets upstairs in the master bedroom nor is there a linen closet. But the kids are happy about the yard and the size of their rooms. I am looking forward to yard work and swimming!

Potty Mouth!

The funniest thing just happened. Hubby was brushing his teeth.. All of a sudden I hear "Hey, this isn't tooth paste!!!" Yep, he had grabbed a tube of A and D diaper rash ointment thinking it was toothpaste. We all got a great laugh at his expense!! We weren't laughing at him we were laughing with him!
