The Ultimate Blog Party Year 2

A big thank you to 5 Minutes For Mom for hosting the ultimate Blog Party. Welcome to my blog party.. You have found yourself at my home on the web, mindless chatter of a BUSY mom.. Come on in.. grab some food.. It's nothing too fancy, It has been another busy week for this mom so we are doing easy party food today.

Now that you have your food lets sit and chat awhile.. I just love getting to meet new blogging buddies. My Name here on the blog Is KC. I'm a 35 year old stay at home mom.. Though I have to LOL at that Stay at Home part, because I think since becoming a stay at home mom I'm on the go more then I ever was when I worked.
I'm a Christian, I accepted Christ as my savior on March 21, 1977 when I was 4 years old. Every night before bed my dad would tell us a bedtime story.. This night we were all(my dad and sister and I) laying in bed. I don't remember what story we had or what we were talking about.. But we started talking about God and being saved and that night I told my dad I wanted to get saved, Dad helped me by leading me in a prayer and that Night The Lord saved me.
I started my blog to keep a record of the fun things the kids say and do and also so one day they can look back and maybe read my blog and get to know there mommy a little better and also see Just how much each and everyone one of them mean to me. Along the way I have joined in a bit of blogging fun. Every so often I like to join in on the Menu Plan Monday, Meme Monday, Time Travel Tuesday, Wordless Wednesday, Throwback Thursday, Faith-Lift Friday, Friday Feast, and Know and Tell Friday. Also either on Sunday night or Monday Morning I like to give a Weekend Recap of all the happenings of my weekend, since I normally can't fit blogging in on the weekends.
Let me introduce you to the family. DH, Princess, Mr Man, Sweet Pea and Little Man.
DH and I have been married for 14 years come October, but I started dating him on April 1, 1989 So we have been together for just about 19 years.
We have 5 children, 4 here living with us and 1 who the Lord chose fit to take to heaven when I was 13 weeks pregnant with her.
Our Oldest is Princess. She is 12 years old and in the 6th grade. She loves her sports. She plays Fast pitch softball pretty much year round for a few different teams, She is on the school Basketball team which goes from Sept till March give or take a few weeks on either end, She also plays Volleyball. Besides sports she has been blessed with brains..
She is on the school newspaper and the Academic challenge team.When she is not running from one activity to the next she loves to spend her time with her friends. Our 2nd child is Mr Man. He is 8 years old and in 2nd grade. He is my tender hearted child. He cares so deeply for everyone around him
He like his older sister plays in a few different sports. Soccer, Basketball and Baseball. He does very well in school, has never even had to have a warning in all his years of school so far and hasn't brought home anything less then an A(or what equals and A in the younger grades such as S+'s and E's)He is also my thrill seeker, will ride any thrill ride he is tall enough to ride and loves every minute of it, unlike his older sister who won't ride anything LOL. Our 3rd child is Sweet Pea, she truly is our sweet pea. She just turned 6 years old a month ago and started Kindergarten this past fallYou would never know it from her pictures but she is the shy one in the bunch. If she doesn't know you she will hang on me or hide behind my legs if you talk to her.. But she is a little chatter box at home and with her friends. She too plays sports, not as much as the older two, but she has done dance, and gymnastics and plays t-ball.. She is doing excellent in school taking after the older two.. and she loves kindergarten. I'm so thrilled about this since she wasn't too keen on preschool. Our 4th child is Alyssa, God took her home to be with him on April 16, 2004 when I was 13 weeks along with her.
#5 the baby of the family, is Little Man. He is 2 1/2 years old and will turn 3 on May 14, 2008
He is all boy and all 2 year old boy.. one minute he can just be the sweetest thing in the world the next he can throw the biggest fit I have ever seen in my life. His favorite things are Thomas trains and his sisters and brother. He is potty training and starting to give up his naps(might explain the fits) He is mommies sweet Little ManIt was so nice of you to come and visit with me a bit. Please sign the Mr Linky and leave me a comment so that I can stop by your place to get to know you a bit.
Don't forget to try the fruit pizza it is tasty..

Great party! Your kids are adorable, and I think I need that fruit pizza right away. God bless!

Brandie said...

Great pictures! All the children sound so fun ... I have a two year old son, just like yours - down to being completely sweet one minute and then, wham the biggest fit you've ever seen the next! And he also is in love with Thomas and his 2 older sisters! LOL =)
My girls are more tame - although the oldest has quite the independent streak in her. But they are both so sweet and have such tender hearts.
It was very nice to meet you, and I hope you enjoy the party!
