Messy and wonderful perfectly describes my life as a wife and mom of five. I'm passionate about advocating for orphans by telling their stories and encouraging adoption and orphan care. My schedule is messy and wonderful as I am charged with four sons and one daughter. We love living in our little mountain ski town. We do a little camping, a little skiing, a little hunting, and a lot of laughing and loving. Life is dirty and loud around here but we wouldn't want it any other way. Okay, maybe a little less dirty!
If this is your first time here, let me introduce you to the crew (they have been given blog names to protect their undercover work). These are the men that make my world go round. They are the men I'm in love with and can't do without!
The Hunter: He is our eldest son and an intellectual, independent, inventive ten year old. He loves to hunt with his dad, climb trees, make inventions out of trash, and is a great friend to those around him.
Sauce: Our nine year old sports fanatic. This is the boy who is constantly running and jumping or throwing a ball. He has a million dollar smile and is constantly looking for someone to play a game of soccer, baseball or basketball with.
Rufus: This seven year old is as sweet as pie, but tough as nails in a challenge. He works hard to keep up with his big brothers!
Squirt: At four years old, this "big kid" thinks he is going on seven. He is constantly surprising us at how he keeps up with his brothers and makes us crack up at his silly antics every day.
My Man is a passionate hunter and skier that masquerades as a sales account manager during the week (we are way into undercover work here). He swept me off my feet 15 years ago and we haven't looked back.
