I turn 26 on Wednesday. I have been dreading this day for the past couple of months. I am getting old. 26 just seems so old to me! I can't be 26. High School still doesn't seem that far away and now my life is just speeding up faster and faster every year. I am getting old. My once perfect tight size 0 body now shows the signs of having given birth to 4 kids and not to mention having nursed every single one of them. (Nursing does it own special magic on your boobs) I look in the mirror and see WRINKLES underneath my eyes. They ARE there and I see them. 26 is old. I'm no longer going to be in my early twenties but in my late twenties, which is just another way to say "almost 30". Reese will be 7 on Friday. I am going to have a 7 year old! It scares me that she is growing up so fast, it scares me that I did grow up.

Hi, My Name is Kirstin & I have an Addiction

Yes, I have an addiction. It's called "Antiques" I love Antiques! I spend way to much time at anitque stores and spend way to much money on them. And yes I do bring all of my kids with me. This little baby here is my latest purchase. I bought it today from an Antique Store and paid only $13 dollars for it. So after doing some research on this, I found that it was made in 1868 and worth a whole lot more than $13!!!!!!! It is a CFH (Charles Field Haviland). Isn't that cool! I love my addiction!

My awesome week...

This week has been "awesome"...

On Wednesday my house caught on fire. Well not really, we had a chimney fire and the fire department showed up so that was nice. Now we don't have any heat in the back part of the house ( the kitchen and the family room)... (the furnaces are connected to the chimney...) So now we are waiting for someone to come and take a look at it so we can use it again. But it is cold in the kitchen and the computer is in the kitchen and I am cold right now...

And then Thursday night my darling first born threw a shoe at a window that was about 100 yrs old and BROKE IT! Brian and I just started laughing! Of course she broke the window!! So far the past months have been HORRIBLE!!! (not for me for Brian, work stuff) And all we can do now is just laugh!

Here is a picture of the damage. Ignore the blue painters tape, I lost interest in painting and someday will finish it...

Hayden 10 1/2 Months

I can't believe that my little baby is 10 1/2 months old. She has gotten so big so fast! It kind of makes me a little sad that she is growing up. Right now Hayden weighs just about 19lbs, she's a little skinny but she is in the 90% in height (she must get that from me because I am so tall and skinny...) She can stand up without any help, when she wants too and is TALKING! I'm sure that she will be walking really soon! I can't get over how HAPPY she is! When she was born she was not a happy baby at all... but now she just sits there and giggles to herself! It's so funny!!! She also loves to sing and dance to music. I love this little girl!

Got Wood?

WE DO!!!!


We had a great Thanksgiving! My In-Laws came down from MI and the kids loved having them here! The food was awesome of course, because I made it. Really, everything turned out great! We had 2 turkeys, why? WHY NOT?! I cooked one in the oven and Brian smoked the other one. I don't really have alot of pictures, well because I was busy eating...
