Blog Partay Peeps

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

To tired to actually fix the randomness of  this all, here are my kids in no particular age order.  Introduction to follow this nonsense. 
Mason my oldest 9

My  youngest Serenity 6 months

My middle Netsanet 7
My other middle Abby 7.5
My youngest boy, Judah 6

Well I am excited to try this for the first time.  I am still learning so much and getting back into blogging (FB took over) so I think I will be great to meet some fabulous people.

My name is Kim.  I am desert dweller and mother to 5 amazing (nutty) kids.  I journal our life as a way to keep history alive, but in the process I try to keep things funny and informative, hopefully slightly entertaining.  If you can't laugh at yourself then you are probably dead.  If you ever feel your life is unraveling, stop on by and sit a spell, mine is probably not only unraveling but the kids are probably running with the string and tieing each other up with it.

Our journey began with I DO, then 2 kids and 2 international adoptions and 1 more homegrown bun later we decided it was time for that farm we talked about for so long.  Our journey now is about self sufficiency and sustainability and of course the never ending gopher wars.  Of course the last garden we planted died.  I will not let stop me!!!  I will build a bigger one and reap much bounty!  TaDA.   (and of course photo journal it and write it all down, the good, bad and ugly.


  1. Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog--visiting back from UBP11, I am hoping to post more personal posts and random thoughts of things I ENJOY so keep checking back. I love your lemons picture. My kitchen theme is lemons and oranges, I want to blow it up and put on my wall :)

  2. oh that is great! I am not a decorator by any means and I did well refraining from our community garage sale by not buying home decor today. (need to decorate this farm house.) and lemons in the kitchen could be a way to go! thanks for the idea!

  3. Stopping by from UBP11... beautiful photo's and kiddies. Snakes... EWWWWW! We have so may poisionous snakes here in Australia, they freak me out!

  4. Stopping by from the UBP! You have a beautiful family. And we all wish we could live on a farm. But, after reading about your gopher issues, I think I'll stick to the city. :)

  5. Kim, I just LOVE the pic of all your cute with Serenity and big big open mouthed laugh!
