Mother's Day...

Mother's day was great in our house this year, but really everyday is mother's day...I thank God every day I have little monkeys yelling "MOM"!  Last Year we went and picked out this dog....
And this year....this dog
is HUGE and still my puppy!  This year Farmer Chris packed a picnic and we went to a park!

and I got to hang out with all of the kids!

My little farmers...
Playing in the creek!

And of course the day ended doing the evening chores...because we have many mama pigs that need to know they are appreciated also!

Sorry the posts have been lacking but I am hoping once the kids get out of school, posts will pick up!

The Spring Activities race has begun and what is a mom to cook?

The race has begun... I feel like I am constantly running and late, and I am the kind of person that has to be 5 minutes early to feel like I am on time.  Jackson is playing baseball and Trap Shooting and Cyrus is playing baseball.  Jorja May (4) is constantly running and luckily doesn't mind being shuttled back and forth with the boys and Kyra (12) is recovering from foot surgery but a huge help even though she has a boot on her foot, so no sports for her this summer.  We are nearing the end of school like everyone, so our schedules are very full and with the Farm in the busiest season with the gardens and now pigs going to camp every week I needed something easy to cook.  We just started having smaller Ham Roasts cut out and they are awesome - they fit right in the crock pot, I even put this one in frozen, with chicken broth, carrots, potato's and onions and cooked it on low all day!
And of course I forgot to take a picture after...but everyone was very happy and we got everywhere we needed to be even if we ate at 8:00!

Have a great weekend!
