Alright, so I don't believe this picture has anything to do with this post... but its been a while since you have seen all seven of my beauties...

And I didn't want you to think I was fibbing about having all my offspring...

So, here they are in all their glory! This was the Christmas photo I had sent out to about 5 lucky recipients. WITH a Christmas letter. I was very proud of the letter, it was something I had ALWAYS wanted to do. So, this year, I assembled everyone by the tree and made them smile real big. I typed the letter and hand addressed every single awesome Leopard Christmas card.

( Im totally serious. The cards were an awesome leopard print.)

And mailed out 5.

Just 5.

I found the others last week... at the bottom of my diaper bag.

I know what your thinking and YES!! It is that big.

Come on.... have you seen the size of my purse???

So, I still have the cards. For the Aunts and cousins and dear Grandmas of the family... Not sure on whether I should send them or hide them in shame. Any ideas?

Anyway, these are my 7 pride and joys.

For those that are new to my blog, let me get a few questions out of the way...

I delivered them all, they have ONE daddy, I homeschool them. No, Im NOT supermom, I DON'T wear long skirts ( ok, I do on occasion. but I also wear short skirts and JEANS too!) My hair is NOT long. I LOVE make-up and sparkly jewelry and wear them often and YES I know what causes them...Har Har Har...

And last but not least...YES I am done. But not by choice. To make a long story short... Drs orders. Do or die... meaning if I do go ahead with more, I most likely will die... and seeing as we KNOW what causes them, we ALSO know what prevents them and chose wisdom. Im sad but Im learning to get over it. On really bad days retail therapy helps... followed by lots of prayer (for forgiveness on the retail therapy) and faith... I have LOTS of faith... that this happened for a reason. I don't know it but im gonna stick to my faith.

But here they are. A complete family photo. Seven faces that make me beam with pride and amazed to call my own.

You know, sometimes I think I really have the best family in the world.

(ok, I really think that all the time...)

I do! And the best hubby in the world.

Even when days get crazy... I wonder... how did I ever survive without my 7 wonders of the world?

And Link the Cat.

How can I forget Link the Cat. 18 pounds of cat-dog luuuvvvv... who needs a blog himself, just to keep track of his shinanigans.

All living within the walls of a little red house...

Sounds kinda nice doesn't it?



P.s. I guess the picture does have something to do with this post...


  1. I knew that pic looked familiar - it's posted outside the church office! I say send them all out. Everyone would love to see the photo; and who couldn't use a little Christmas in January?!

  2. I only sent 1/2 of my cards out. Sigh.

  3. Your children are precious! Thanks for sharing! There were a few cards I forgot to even think about sending until I got some from those am sending a late card/calendar to him. Sigh. I actually got less Christmas cards than last year. Are people going to stop sending Christmas cards all together? I hope not.
