Ultimate blog party 2011

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

If you need to find more blogs to read, now is the perfect time to do it.  Head over to the Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom to find huge, and somewhat overwhelming, lists of hundreds of different blogs... and maybe win some prizes.

And if you're visiting here for the first time... Welcome!  Feel free to look around and see what life with 9, soon to be 10, children in the Big Ugly House is like.  You can read more about me and my family by clicking on the tabs under the header.  Look carefully, they're kind of hard to see.

But, for those of you who, like me, find it annoying to have to click on things, here's the brief low-down on all of us.  I am the mother to 9 children... ages 18 all the way down to 1 1/2 year old twin girls.  Two of our sons are adopted from Vietnam and we are in the process of adopting number 10, an 8 year old girl from China.  We are a homeschooling family and I am an ardent supporter of women who choose homemaking as a career.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi! I'm a new reader, nice to meet you!! I love that you're adopting... it's something we'd love to do! I can't imagine your big house is that ugly! It has lots of beautiful children running around in it :) Can't wait to read more!

I want to say wow, you must be busy- but I'm sure you hear that a lot. I do and I just have three. So, I'll stop myself and instead say what a blessing it must be to be surrounded by so many darlings! :)

I love that you firmly state your support of homemakers!
I saw you at the blog party and wanted to say hi :)

I am a huge supporter of homemakers as well and working on getting better at it every day! (I am pretty new.) I love that you have a large family and can't wait to get to "know" you! I have one baby girl and can't wait to give her a sibling... or three. :)

Stop by and say hello when you get a moment. I am new to blogging and can't wait to learn from you!

Cheers! Happy Partying!

Hey, I'm Alana and I'm visiting from UBP 2011. I admit what grabbed my attention is your "big ugly house" line. :) Then I read that you have 10 kids...I'm so amazed by women who have lots of kiddos. I just have one right now but who knows...God is in control!

Very nice to meet you! (Stopping by from the UBP.) I'm in awe of your adoption adventures. I've always had a burden in my heart for Asian orphans. :)

10 kids! Wow. I can't even imagine what goes on in your house in a day! I struggle with one:)

Nice to meet you at UBP!

Visiting through the UBP! Your life sounds so fun, and I loved looking through the posts about your house. I have a 12 year old son, and I am a pre-primary teacher, so I get my kid-fix at work as well. Drop by when you get a chance. xx
