For my first entry I would like to share a little bit about myself. I am a happily married wife of over 20 years. We have 7 beautiful children together. We live on small acreage in Southern Idaho where we are trying to finish our house (6 years so far), figure out the best way to use our land, keep some chickens and sheep and raise God fearing productive children.
The kids have all participated in 4H, FFA and various sports and community programs. I have an Eagle scout and two more nearly there. My eldest just started Community College, his next sibling down is homeschooled and I have two in middle school that are coming home next week. Our lives are full of joy and more than a little chaos.
I love to build things, re-purpose things and my eldest daughter is a craft wizard.
I am a stay at home mom. I am big on healthful living. We are physically active and I try to plan balanced meals on a budget.
I love to try new recipes and I almost always tweak them.
My mother is diabetic so whenever she is visiting I try to come up with meals that we will all enjoy and maybe something new for her. It is a fun challenge. Over Thanksgiving, we tried a low sugar paleo pumpkin pie. It was okay after the big dollop of real whipped cream.
