My life! This blog starts when I am a surgery intern and single mom adopting my son from Kyrgyzstan. Now I am married with 10 kids from Kyrgyzstan, Ghana, and China and some bio kids sprinkled in there. Working on slowing down to enjoy all of my blessings!
We just had a great run with the holidays. We spent both Thanksgiving and Christmas at the Beach. We went to Nag's Head, NC and had a house right on the beach. Seriously, there is no other way to go..you can look out at the water when you are cooking dinner and hear the waves crashing as you go to sleep at night...loved it!
Last night Violet wanted to lay in bed and talk with me about the beach before we fell asleep. I am pretty sure she thinks that is "our" beach house (we stayed in the same house both trips). It was nice...I think I like my beaches a tad warmer though! haha.
Tonight I was home alone with the kids and gave V a bath and all of the other kids just came up by the bathroom so we could hang out and talk...then we just all (yes all 8 of us...Lil is at her dad's) went into the girls room to brush V's hair and just hang out. It was nice to just sit around and talk with my little family with no electronics, no tv shows, no food...just hanging.
