I am probably one of the most horrible bloggers out there!  My last post has been how many months ago?  but I can promise there are posts coming because I just got back from my first mission trip to Mexico and can't wait to write about it!

Pictures From Around My Home

Josiah is a Lego creating king.  He is always making up some lego land that is in fact awesome. 
He didn't care that I took these pictures in fact I don't think he even knew I was there he was so concentrated on what he was doing.

 I'm still reading the second book  of Narnia and enjoying it sooo much.  I always have loved Lucy and now that I'm reading the book I think I like her even more!
and Bat Dog..................... ha, ha this little pup really likes having his picture taking.

Getting ready for Mother's Day!

People ask me all the time.  What is it like being in a large family?  What is it like being the oldest?   Do you ever get time to yourself?  Frankly I'm used to those type questions and it doesn't bother me when people ask them.   They honestly just want to know and yes, occasionally I'll get some smart alec comment like "Boy, bet you can't wait till you turn eighteen so you can move out", but that is the occasional and like I already said most people are just curious and for that reason I'm going to answer those questions.  I don't usually do those wordsy type posts so this will probably be the longest post without pictures I'll ever do.

First off  being in a large family is crazy and down right awesome at the same time.  You've probably heard that being in a big family means you always have a friend and never feel left out?  Well, its true.  With each of us having six kids to play or talk to we never feel left out  and being the oldest is something I wouldn't change if I could.  I love it.

People probably think when they see us "Yeah her kids must be perfect so that's why she has so many" Ha!  Ask any of my siblings and they would say nothing could be further from the truth.  There are days when we argue, when I have little patience for the 2 year old wanting his shoes on a certain way, for the 3 year old begging for the last sip of my Sonic drink or for the 4 year old getting into my make up.  Even though she's in the middle of four boys she's still ultimate girl.

We sometimes argue just like any other group of brothers and sisters but I guess the difference with us is that while most siblings want nothing to do with each other we WANT to spend time with each other.  There are days when I can't wait to stay up and watch a movie with my sister, or reenact Lord of the Rings with my brothers, or jump on the trampoline with the littles.  So yes even best friends get on each others nerves sometimes but they still want to be around one another.

So being in a big family has its rewards and for the last question "do I ever get any time by myself"?. Yes, a lot every night when I go to sleep....just kidding.   Yes, I do get time by myself but I'm not all that of a  by myself type person.  I'm a people person I like to be around others and have fun.

So there you go I have a crazy somewhat wacky family but I wouldn't want it any other way.

Hope I didn't bore anyone with these rambles. I hope to do a much long over due picture post soon!

You knew this was coming didn't you? Who can't read a Narnia book and not want to write about it?

Title:  The Magician's Nephew

Author: C.S. Lewis

Genre: Christian, fantasy

Rating:  5 out of 5 stars

Synopsis:  Polly and Digory become friends one day in London.  On one of their playing escapades they stumble upon a secret room, Digory's Uncle Andrew's study.  His uncle claiming to be a magician sends them to someplace else. They will encounter Aslan's Narnia newly created from his song, the evil witch Jadis before they will finally return home.

My Thoughts:  Okay so I LOVED THIS BOOK.  Digory and Polly were wonderful together even if they did end up in a fight now or then.   Uncle Andrew- you couldn't help but feel sorry for him at times and I love this part:

[Jadis]  "Procure for me at once a chariot or a flying carpet or a well-trained dragon, or whatever is usual for royal and noble persons in your land.  Then bring me to places where I can get clothes and jewels and slaves fit for my rank.  Tomorrow I will begin the conquest of the world".

"I-I-I'll go and order a cab at once", gasped Uncle Andrew

Ha, that whole chapter was hilarious.  Can't wait for the next book : The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.  Excited to begin!

Negative Elements:  There is a little violence in the book very very mild but probably best for ages 8 and up.

in the land of Narnia

Hello my name is Morgan and I have never read the Narnia Chronicles.

but I've watched the movies!
Does that count?

anyway I'm wondering if anyone has heard if another Narnia movie is supposed to be coming out?
I've heard maybe the next one might be the Magician's Nephew I'm not sure on it but all the book lovin' fans out there will be happy to know I have started the Magician's Nephew and plan to read all the rest of the books in order. 
Katie and my brothers have read all of them and keep telling me I need to .
So yesterday I picked one up and started reading and......
 it is sooo good! 
Let me tell you though Uncle Andrew is creepy.
If the are planning on making the Magicians Nephew Katie thinks Christopher Lloyd needs to be him.
We've seen him in the Pagemaster and heard him play Radagast in Disney's Anastasia and he seems to always be always playing an eccentric shall we say? So she thinks the part will be perfect for him.

All I want is for the movie to come out soon around Christmas maybe?

*My Favorite quote from the book. *

That’s all you know,” said Digory. “It’s because you’re a girl. Girls never want to know anything but gossip and rot about people getting engaged.”
“You looked exactly like your Uncle when you said that,” said Polly.
