It's been so long I don't know where to start. So I will start with now and maybe I will fill in the blank... someday. Travis is the SRO (School Resource Office) so he as all of Christmas brake off. Which I am so grateful for. I love having him around and so do our kids. He has never been able to take time off just because, we usually have plans or going on vacation but this time NOTHING. It has been a crazy year at at the SO and he hasn't been able to take any time off all year and now he has a hole bunch that he will lose if he doesn't use it. So we have sat around with nothing to do. We have slept in everyday and now with our kids getting older they like to sleep in too!! It as been so nice!!
Today I made 5 batches of play-dough I thought it would keep the kids entertained so I could get something done but by the time I got it all done and cleaned up the kids were done playing and had moved on to the next thing. I thought it was a good idea but it didn't play out the way I thought it would. The kids had fun but I didn't get anything done. Story of my life!
Christmas was good. We have really tried to cut back we want to get out of debt this is the first year we have been about to buy Christmas with cash. To some that doesn't sound like much but to us with 6 children and my desire to stay home for the time being, it is really hard. Someday I will work but right now I want to be home and to honest I will never really work. I want to always be there for my kids and even more for my husband. On occasion Travis will come home and need to run to Fillmore or he might have 10 minutes to grab a drink, I want to be able to drop everything and go with him. He is so important to me and I want it to always stay that way.
I am really loving where I am at in my life right now. My babies are 3 and my oldest is 13. The day after Christmas we left the kids home and took of to have lunch with some friend was great. Travis and I can have adult time and not have to worry about leaving the babies home. Janie is so much help she is 11 and the best baby sitter in the world seriously... There are not a lot of adults that I would dare leave 2 sets of twins but for an hour of so she is awesome! The lord has a plan for me and I am still trying to figure it out. I might never know for sure but I do know the lord as a lot of faith in me. I can't seem to figure out why he thinks I can manage all this craziness! I love my kids so much. They are amazing kids and I know the lord loves them even more than me. I can feel all the responsibility the lord as given me and I pray everyday that I can live up to challenge.
