A long absence....

Wow, looking at the date of the last post, it's amazing how long it has been. So much has happened over the past year-both ups and downs-and the blog was one of those things that just had to get pushed to the side. But we are still here, plugging along, living life, enjoying all that God has blessed us with! At this point, we are now down to nine kids at home. Yes, my oldest, who is 18 now, moved out to his own apartment last month. Yes, I miss him terribly, but am so happy for him to have the chance to experience all life has in stor
e for him. Fortunately, he's only a few minutes away, also, so he is able to come back and visit. As for the rest of the crew, my next oldest is now of working age and has two jobs, while everyone else is busy with schoolwork, activities, and just keeping this household running! During our day to day work, we try to make some room to have fun. So what have we been up to? Here's what we made the other nite (my little ones loved it!)
Yep! That's an angry bird pizza! My little ones loved this and it made pizza nite extra fun!
We love holidays around here and valentine's is no exception-a great excuse to bake-and bless our neighbors with lots of goodies! :-) From heart cookies....
To cookie pops...
And, to top it off, a cake! Don't worry, these treats were made over several days and shared generously with others! Otherwise, we'd be oompa loompas!
I didn't even take pictures of all the green st. patrick's day goodies....let's just say we had lots of fun with the green!
My 3rd boy also turned 14 this month-wow! Where does time go? We celebrated with a yummy cookie cake and a special dinner. Growing up too fast! This is just a short little snippet of life at our house. So much has happened and will happen for sure over the coming days-hopefully it will not be so long between posts! It is never a dull moment around here!
