Still, I wish I could draw a perfect picture in your mind of the crazy nonstop busy-ness going on in our home at all times that leaves me too busy for sitting and blogging. :) Here is a fabulous example: Just the other day I sat at this here new computer for the first time and changed up my header photo and replied to recent comments. In the small window of time that took me, the baby, who is 18 mos old now, got ahold of an abandoned bowl of popcorn some children had left within his reach. It appeared to have snowed popcorn throughout the living room by the time I discovered his fun. While that was happening in the living room, someone apparently dropped a stuffed cat into the toilet. They then took it out and walked across the bathroom with it, leaving a lovely stream of toilet water behind, and dropped said soggy cat on the rug directly in front of the bathroom door. Which I stepped on. And, dinner was late to get to the table. But at least I got to change my blog header! LOL.
But anyway, now I'm so far behind I cannot figure out where to start! What should I post about first? Recent kitchen happenings? Our meal plan, schedules, routines? A farm animal post? A pregnancy update? General life update? How we're preparing for winter? Just a bunch of pictures from this summer? This fall? Update on our homeschool year? A post about our recent lessons, curriculum and art? What the kids are up to? All the minimizing I've been doing around the house? How our gardening went this year, and the canning I've done? The butchering, the milking? How hard I've been battling the darn mice that just keep finding ways into our house?! And seriously, I really have been writing a post called My Faith Journey inside my head that will make it to the blog eventually.
Can I just start with something super simple? Here are our recent birthday celebrators. :)
Littlest Miss turned 3!
Being silly with dad.
A couple weeks later, Mister Four became Mister Five year old!
We had given him a bunch of little lights on rings, so most of his birthday pictures ended up looking like this:
Baby T reeeally enjoys ice cream. ;)
Next up will be this young man on the right's birthday, he'll become 9. A couple weeks after that, boy on the left will be turning 7, just before Christmas Day. And somewhere in there, our new baby will make his or her appearance!
This is what happens when you ask two very goofy boys to smile for a picture.
Funny thing, each of my 7 children so far have been born in different months. But this new baby is finally going to break the trend and share a birthday month with a sibling whether he/she comes today or the end of December.
All right, posting successful! I figured out how to use this new PC, discovered how to upload pictures from my phone AND resize them AND post them! That is really quite impressive for someone like me. :p Funny thing I should be married to a guy in the computer software industry.
