It's a party!

Wow! A party I can attend in my pajamas! And you can't even see the coffee stain on my shirt!

Ok, there isn't really a coffee stain. There may be a bit of pear juice from an extremely juicy pear . . . but I will neither confirm nor deny it.

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

If you stumbled here through the Ultimate Blog Party 2009, let me introduce myself.

I am Christi. Yes, nice to meet you too.

I am married to Hubby over there, yes that is him rewiring something. We have 2 kids, Daisy who is 9 over there baking some bread and Junior, just turned 6, who is over there with the video games.

We homeschool our kids, which is turning out to be a learning experience for all of us, not just them. We have tackled things like canning, preserving, entomology, nature study, and history.

We live in East Texas where there is always plenty to blog about. Not just hurricanes. You might want to look at my favorite posts, they are over there on the sidebar.

Ummm, I think that is all. Although, I am pretty sure I am forgetting something.

edited to add:

I realized what I was forgetting, the prizes I am most interested in.

There are so many wonderful prizes and I would be glad to get any of them, my top picks though would be 19, 21, 22, 17,18, 12, 49, 5, and 2.

I also thought I would mention, I have a tag going here if you are interested.

  2. It must be fun being able to homeschool your kids and do things like canning with them. I hope to teach my kids things like canning, baking and gardening, when they are old enough, like my mom taught me.

    It was nice meeting you! Enjoy the party!

  19. Hi,
    Your recipes sound good and I agree your sometimes better off not telling the kids what is in it, and if you have to you only say the things that you know he likes. Thanks for the invite to the party.

    Nice meeting you! You sound like you have such a beautiful family! Too cute! I am a little late to the blog party but I like your blog! I’m still having a little "after party" at my place too!

    I'm not a mom yet myself but I'm thinking that may change one day soon! I'm trying to get the DL from moms on "the stuff they don't tell you beforehand!" haha.

    Can't wait to pick your brain! And please feel free to share your advice or secrets anytime!
