Hello and welcome to my Zoo! When I say zoo I do mean family. We do have a variety of animals here but none that belong in a zoo. Why??? you may ask do I refer to my family as a zoo?? I guess the easiest way to explain would be to ask you the question..... Have you ever been to a zoo more than once? Let me enlighten you if you haven't. Every time you go to the zoo it is always different but always entertaining. One day the elephants may be sleeping, the bears fighting and monkeys just sitting there doing nothing for hours. On your next trip the elephants exhibit is closed, the monkeys are throwing poop at each other and the bears are sleeping. This is the best way to describe my family life. Every time you walk through my front door you never know what your going to get. one day the fresh aroma of cinnamon buns baking, kids are playing nicely and the dogs are sleeping. the next day the kids are screaming, the dogs barking and the house is a mess. but at least no one here throws poop. yet. My home is a constant flow of energy. My children, other children, animals, baking, sports, education and love..... lots of love. I find as being the mother bear of my zoo it takes a lot of trial and error to make things run smoothly and that you cant make everyone happy. I will be posting the things i have tried with my family. Recipes, toys, outings, games, home-made projects that worked and didn't work and tips that i find that made life around the zoo more interesting. I will also be posting just general family updates and pictures just in case my mother is the only one checking this site out. Check out the "about me" area to learn more about what my zoo consists of and who I am. God bless!

What November brings us!

Wow, a whole month just went by in a blink of an eye.  We got news regarding Katelyn thats been a little hard to handle.  Open Heart Surgery. Never thought I would have to say those words regarding one of my children but its true.  In the next couple months our little girl will be undergoing surgery to correct 2 congenital heart defects.  I will keep everyone updated as much as I can.  Besides the stress that comes with a sick child, Jaycee is now in Hockey again this year and doing great!  Tito joined catachisim this month. He loves it!  Well I better get going and tend to Children, laundry, supper, dogs ...... I could go on forever!!!!
God Bless.
