Sometimes, its really hard

being a mom of a lot of kids, today was one of those days, Makenna bawled and bawled after waking up from her to late of nap, we were trying to play games with the kids and she made it impossible, the older kids were being loud and I was trying to hold the baby and nurse him at the same time. Someone was getting hurt at some point and bawling, tattling on someone, someone getting yelled at!!! I just wanted to run away.

But, I didn't, and as I watch my children tonight playing a silly game together, guiding the little ones, my heart is soothed and I once again feel that I can do another day, that Makenna's constant kisses to Caden wont send me through the roof!!

Life is good!!

So Im.........

Kinda freakin out. Its really, really, really close. I know, I know, # 8 and your really going to freak, but ya, ya I am!!
Don't ya know it really really hurts, the baby part no not that part, just the birth part, it really hurts. So ya about this time, every time I kinda freak out! I keep thinking OK so what if this is the time that I cant handle it and cave in and get a epidural, what if my kids see me loose it, what if my kids loose it. Not to mention, I'm just kinda feeling crazy thinking this is it I'm done, last baby!!
What is wrong with me, I kinda just feel like screaming!!!

He really does have a heart of gold!!

So picture this. wait, wait, wait. Don't picture this at all.
So its the end of a long day, my back and hips are killing me at this point. I'm getting ready to get into the bath, I'm standing in front of the mirror, yep now you can only imagine the things I'm thinking. Colton, my 4 year old walks into the bathroom, he looks at me and he says, oh mommy look, look mommy at my sweet baby Caden, oh mommy it is getting close huh, cause I can tell he is getting big. Oh mommy, I just love my baby Caden!!
So yep, I was put in my place by my sweet little 4 year old, made to really think about and ponder what is really important, so kudos to you my sweet son, and thank you!!

Jake's first hunt, he was so stinkin excited, actually truth be told I had 2 boys that were very excited, I think Randy put life on hold for 10 days!! They didn't even see anything until the regular hunt was over! But the day after they saw alot of bucks, they came home so excited to just see them even though they didn't get any good shots, they were just happy to see some!!

They actually

didn't get a good shot until Sunday, the last day of the hunt, they said they stopped to umm, go to the bathroom.....Jake finished first, said dad, dad, I see something, Randy says ummm, OK son just a minute. Randy turned to look just as the deer picked his head up, and they both were like, wow!!

Jake got into position, got a perfect shot the first shot, clean through the neck, shot a couple more times, but the first shot is what brought him down!!

Needless to say they were a couple of very happy boys, Sunday night!!

Randy took that deer around Monday, and showed it to so many guys, so funny to me. To watch my sweet hubby go into the bank and come back out with all these ties, all come to check out the kill.

The inspector said it was one of the biggest he had seen through the whole hunt, which of course made his head all the bigger.

But we are very proud, he was a 4 point, 27 inch spread!!

The butcher said he only had one bigger.

Happy boys for another year!!
