"Anyone can have one kid. But going from one kid to two is like going from owning a dog to running a zoo." P.J. O'Rourke
Quote of the Day
"God never meant man to be a purely spiritual creature. That is why He uses material things like bread and wine to put the new life into us. We may think this rather crude and unspiritual. God does not: He invented eating. He likes matter. He invented it." ~ C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

I hereby decree that the 28th day of November be declared Carpet Day, to be celebrated every year henceforth in celebration of our carpet finally being laid. Carpet Day should be annually celebrated by throwing yourself with whole-hearted enthusiasm onto any carpeted floor and proclaiming, "Praise God for his kindness to the human race in allowing carpet to be made and installed!"
If you do not have a carpeted floor on which to celebrate Carpet Day, feel free to come to our house and throw yourself on one of the many floors being carpeted on this very first Carpet Day!
Hi! I'm Barb, but you can just call me that Crazy Mom. I have been married to the most wonderful husband in the world for 22 years. We have eight children, one dog, two bunnies and two hamster. Six of our kids are adopted, two are biological, I'll leave it to you to figure out which are which. All of our pets are adopted.
I love Jesus, my husband and my kids - in that order.
Other things I love, in no particular order:
- dark chocolate
- Mumford & Sons
- the ocean
- my hammered dulcimer
- my French horn
- dancing in the driveway
- singing in the car with the windows down
- reading really good books
