A Baby Story

On Tuesday, my last baby was delivered.  I say last, because, unless God does a miracle, this will be the last baby I grow inside of me.  Baby boy (still working on a nickname) was welcomed into the world by me, Racer, Blue, Professor, Girlie, Gorilla, my parents, Racer’s mother and grandmother.  He is alreadyContinue reading “A Baby Story”

Weird Eaters and Lentil Soup

My kids are weird eaters.  I don’t get it.  They LOVE chicken nuggets and all that unhealthy kids stuff that we parents feed them when we are busy and need something quick.  My youngest 3 are TOTAL bread eaters too.  Rolls, biscuits, bread sticks – they want to eat that and nothing else when weContinue reading “Weird Eaters and Lentil Soup”
