My Family

Welcome to my blog!

I was never taught how to keep up a house as a child.. I was raised by my dad, along with 2 younger brothers, so I was a bit of a tomboy.
I am married now, with four children of my own & want more than anything to be a good wife and mother. My house is always a mess... This blog is my way of charting my progress, in my spritual growth and learning how to keep house. If you have any suggestions, or ideas for me, please let me know. If you are in the same boat as I... I would love to hear from you.
I am learning and trying, but I don't know how others do it. When I find the answer, I will share it with you. I promise.
I like to cook, am good at sewing, crochet, crafts, writing... I just can't keep house. I try with everything I have, and always come up a mile short.
I am trying to over all be a good person, be a strong Christian lady for my daughters and son to look up to, a wife my husband treasures. That above all else... even a clean house... is what I want in life. I have an etsy shop at stop in sometime :)

So proud of my kids.

Yesterday my son (6) told me that he wanted a shirt for Christmas that says "God is love". That just melted my heart. Then today my daughter (8) won a jewelry making kit at school, the kit contains enough to make 20 pieces of jewelry, do you know she only wanted to make one thing for herself, and made out a list of 19 people she wanted to make things for as Christmas presents. She is even crafting her own jewelry boxes for each gift. She is going to be like me, such a crafty little person with a big heart. I am so proud of both of them, did I mention that they will both be getting baptised this Sunday at church. They each dedicated their lives to the lord at different times, months ago. So needless to say, I will be taking lots of pictures of them. I just wanted to share that with you. DH is working late tonight, he won't be in until really late, or early tomorrow morning. I really dislike when he is working that late, so far away from home, I worry about him driving tired. I wish he could find more jobs closer to where we live. So this will be a late night for me, as I always wait up for him. I just can't sleep when I am worried about him so much. Here I am typing about how proud I am of the kids, and they are acting up, not wanting to get ready for bed. I guess that will have to be enough for now, I need to get them settled in so I can have some quiet time.
