Boy they weren't kidding when the called this
- The Ultimate Blog Party



Hello and welcome to my little portion of the 5 Minutes for Mom - Ultimate Blog Party. From the looks of it, this is ONE BIG PARTY, with over 750 bloggers already signed up on the Mr. Linky over there. Feel free to join the fun here and then invite some folks over to your place for a party. You can get the details here.

For those of you visiting for the first time. Feel free to grab a soda and stay a while. We'll put out the snacks, probably some of this and this because both are great party dips. Don't mind the dog, she's just super friendly. And the kids? Well, a couple of them are a little shy, so they'll be in and out. But the others - they'll talk your ear off! Are you up for some games on the Nintendo Wii? My 5 year old is pretty good! If you're interested in who I am, check out My 100.

If you have to rush off to other parties (and I completely understand if you do - there are SO MANY to visit!), let me just introduce myself to you before you go. I am:

  • married to my college sweetheart, Pastormac going on 18 years.

  • a stay-at-home, home-schooling mom to five homemade kids, ages 14, 12, 9, 7 and 5.

  • in the process of adopting two children from Ethiopia.

  • a novice blogger and have only been a blogging since last June.

  • a born-again Christian, have been since I was 13.



Well, I better let you go. Thanks for dropping by. Come back again soon. I hope to hear news on our adoption front any day now. Should be exciting.

I LOVE the fact that you are still happily married to your college sweetheart.

Looking forward to hearing more about the adoption. Those kids are going to be so blessed to be joining your family!

Love and light,

Love your blog, Ann! You sound like a wonderful person. I've been blessed by the SAHM's and adopting moms I've seen in this party. I think it's awesome that you're opening your heart and home to Ethiopian children. God bless, and come visit my blog when you get a moment!

Susanne said...

In from the party! Good luck on your adoptions - that's so awesome! Have a great day!

Beck said...

Aw! I love hearing a little bit more about you! It's funny how some kids can be SO shy and some kids can be SO outgoing in the same household, isn't it?
I have some questions about homeschooling - I might email you with them later, if that's okay!

Michelle said...

This has turned out to be some party! I can't believe how many participants there are! I hope you hear something on the adoption front soon!

Michelle said...

You have one of the best blog designs I've seen! I found you via BluBird Blog Design and I happened to see you are a party member too. How cool!

So what was your experience with BlueBird Design like? I'm looking for someone to give my blogs a new look.

Enjoy the party!
