Welcome Blessed...and you sure are blessed with children!
I always wanted a large family but only was blessed with 2 boys. They are the greatest and I always felt blessed too!

Hope you can share with us about your life and Alaska! Of all the places to see, that is where I would love to win a trip to!
So Please....tell us about your State.

If it doesn't nourish your soul,
Don't Keep it.

chuckle Thank You!!!

What a warm wonderful welcome!!! (say THAT 5 times fast LOL)

I gave birth to 3 of the children and have aquired 3 by marraige. I am blessed with all six and very happy about it!! We are sole custodial of all and the other parents don't have much to do with the kids.

Organization??? What is that???? LOL. I try to be organized as much as I can. We have schedule after schedule after routine after routine around here. It gets hectic on some days and I wonder what I will do with all of my time when they grow up!! All the kids are in school full time now so I get my quiet time during the day once a week. The rest of the time I am up at 5am and don't go to bed until about 12 in order to get my quiet time.

I am a life long Alaskan. I will die of old age up here. It is and will always be my home. Winters can get hard at -30 for a couple weeks at a time. But I like the attitude of the people.

I hope to yap with y'all on other boards as well.

thanx again
Staci Lyn
I am blessed with a large, beautiful family and a great husband.

Hi everyone! I am 48 years old, married for 22 years to a great guy, and have 2 children, Christina, 24 years old , and Richard, 18 years old. Christina is married, and Richard is a senior in high school this year.I am also "mom" to a dog (Jake), a cat (Junior) and 2 female ferrets (Susie and Snoball). I am an Xray technologist, and work in a large charity hospital in Houma, Louisiana.
I enjoy doing home improvement projects (recently repainted/wallpapered my kitchen and dining room), puttering around in my garden, and recently took up tole painting using Donna Dewberry's one-stroke method. Since I work 40 hours in 3 days (2 sixteen hour shifts over the weekend and one 8 hour shift during the week), I have plenty of "off" time to enjoy my hobbies.
I recently discovered this site while puttering around on my computer, and thought it looked like a fun place to visit often. Lots of great tips and ideas!

Hello Liz, and welcome to the best site around. You will find so many different threads to get attached to. The one I'm gonna suggest to you, is the Louisiana thread. There ae a bunch of terrific ladies there, and they will welcome you into their family. Tell them I sent you, and the doors will open wide!!!

Again, welcome, and enjoy.....

Welcome Elizabeth

Anybody that can wallpaper has my admiration. Welcome.

Back when I was growing up I used to help my dad wallpaper and I always thought wallpaper was a 4 letter word.

I've never tried to wallpaper my whole adult life. I think I have a phobia. LOL

Hope you love it here as much as the rest of us do. There are a lot of wonderful ladies on the boards who have a lot of information to share and many questions to ask so just jump in whenever and where ever.

Hi there angel 29 and karens kids
I feel rather out of place as you both have two lovely girls each, I have 2 handsome boys .
One is 12 on Sat 19 Oct and the other is 7
I have the neighbourhood kids around on the week ends and school holidays as we live in a cul de sac, and they know they can play (& get fed) at our house. I don't mind.
Are your children up to anything exciting at school now, we are going into summer and have started swimming for phys ed.
Without sounding silly, where do you live?

blushing Welcome Stacey and Elizabeth (Liz?)

It's always nice to meet new ladies. Stacey, do you live in a remote part of Alaska or in a city? I am somewhat fascinated with living in Alaska; not actually DOING it, just thinking about it!:p

Hi Bilby,

we live near St. Louis, Missouri, USA. I grew up in Europe though. How nice that you`re getting ready for summer....ours is over. It got cold and really windy the last couple weeks. Fall is starting here. My girls are getting ready for Halloween (also in school, they`ll have Halloweenpartys in their classes).
besides school they do gymclass and ballett/tapdance. My 6-year-old Nicki learned how to swim this summer in our apartment-pool. She didn`t need any lessons...we`ve been out there almost every day from June till Mid-September ! Hopefully she won`t forget how to swim over the winter.
