My crazy life as Mom of Eleven

Greetings to all my friends in Blog land. My life as mom of eleven has occupied me this month beyond my expectations. The activities have been galore as well as our news!! We found out this month we will be expecting #12!! Yes. . . you read it right, I might even have to change my blog to "Cheaper by the Dozen". God has blessed us with the news of another miracle that will be coming into our lives early summer/late spring. Date to be announced upon arrival. . my children seem to make up their own due dates, as all of them do.

The kids are super excited and S, age 9, even asked me today "is that really healthy for the baby?" as I was eating Cocoa Pebbles. I explained, well, when you are 10 weeks pregnant, you eat only what you feel you can stomach, and I figure that Post has fortified enough vitamins for the kids, so it's good enough for the baby! (plus that pre-natal vitamin afterwards surely helps)

Beyond that thrill, life has been crazy with birthdays, loose teeth, minor surgeries for two kids, collecting 4100 shoeboxes at our church, Christmas recitals, lots of homework and projects, Thanksgiving programs, and just day to day life. I hope to spend this week catching up the blog with all of our fun times we have been having as to have some type of documentation that life in fact did happen.

Please help us pray for our new life we are thrilled to welcome. Please pray for God to give me energy to make it past 5:00 in the evening, as by then I feel like heading to bed. . . I am 10 years older than I was when I had S.

Enjoy catching up on all of our news!

I could hardly believe my ears, when J told me. Then I found out that it may have had something to do with the Rome Area History musuems Rodeo??!! Funny how that stomach bug happened right then. I am sooooo happy for you guys. I will be praying for you and your growing family. You have lots of helpers so use them when you can. Lots to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Dee

What a Blessing! Congratulations.I always say another Warrior in God's Army. I am in Colorado with my oldest daughter awaiting the arrival of her 2nd. We are excited to say #5 granchild will be delivered in June. May we as parents lead these soldiers each day in the Spirit and not in the flesh. May He give you the strength and grace you need each day. I will pray for you....Cheryl
