We call it

Mt. Laundry!

This is the view from elevation 0 ft. :)

The first thing you are probably wondering is how long it took for us to gather this much laundry. 6 days? 7 days? Nope! Only 2 days! And this is a smaller amount for 2 days! I'm convinced that Mt. Laundry is actually a volcano. You see, it eventually blows its top and then starts to ooze and spread across the floor.
It might have something to do with children who like to jump into it as if it were an autumn pile of leaves. Or by my son who enjoys using it as his personal gargantuan beanbag chair. Or it may be caused by the little ones who choose it as a perfect hide and seek spot.

I mean, what are the chances of being found in there? 

So what are the ups and downs of this huge pile?
First, a good thing: I actually enjoy sorting, washing and drying the laundry! It doesn't bother me at all! Which is a good thing considering I do it every. single. day.
Second, a bad thing: (except for those who are playing hide-and-seek! ) I strongly dislike folding and putting away the laundry!
Third, the best thing: What this laundry pile stands for! All this laundry means that I am surrounded by lots of people I love and get to care for, which is what God put me here to do! And it also means that I am surrounded by people who love me! Who can argue with that? :) 

Somebody grab the record books! A mini Mack has scaled the summit! I think he looks a bit scared. I can't blame him! It's a long way down! :)

Friday Focus

Today I wanted to focus on one of the littles.
So, here's Molly!

  • She is the ninth mini Mack
  • She is the fifth daughter
Here she is as a newborn:

Awwww... precious!
  • Molly was my second homebirth, weighing exactly 8 lbs
  • She was 7 days late (groan...)
Molly now:

  • Molly is our second redhead
  • She is a social butterfly
  • Her volume seems stuck on maximum
  • She can't wait until it's warmer so she can play with Play-doh (Her mommy only lets her play with Play-doh outside after a few carpet messes. Isn't that mean?)
  • She LOVES Disneyland
  • Her favorite food is chicken en-ladas (chicken enchiladas)

A Molly moment:
Molly- "Yes, it is. No, it isn't. Yes, it is. No, it isn't"
Her sister, Megan- "I think Molly's going crazy! She's arguing with herself!"
Molly-"Noooo..... That was my bellybutton!"

Isn't she wonderful? :)

Look what we found

when we woke up this morning!


Not much, but enough to coat everything in a beautiful blanket of white.

Enter the early riser:
After spreading the happy news to her sister, a couple little girls decided that breakfast could wait!

A little while later, a couple big kids joined them:

Ornery boy! :)
Shortly after, they all came back in for breakfast and hot chocolate. The snow was completely melted by 10:45... but not until it was thoroughly enjoyed!
