Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri


Because One Is Not Enough


 Mike and I celebrated our birthdays yesterday.  Yes, they are the same day, and yes, Mike is a year older.  Back in the ancient decade of the '80's, Mike thought that I was using a pick-up line when I said, "Oh, August 3rd is my birthday, too!"  Twenty-three years later, we are still celebrating our birthdays together.

Mike loves Angel Food Cake, so I baked that one for him.  The girls liked the pretty cake, so I baked that one for us.  Seth ate them both.  Jack did not care for the icing, but liked the cake.  Jordan preferred the Angel Food Cake.  So, we had a mix at our house, but both cakes were gone within 26 hours of making them.

Jordan blessed us tonight by watching the children while Mike and I had a nice quiet dinner.  She had her hands full.  She took Jack, Ivy, Eva, and Joy to McDonald's for dinner.  Then she dropped Jack off at karate class and took the girls to the playground in 95 degree temps.  So, thank you Jordan.  Same time next year?

7 kind words:


Happy birthday to you both! My birthday was on August 2nd (I was born on my dad's 20th birthday). I celebrated the 6th anniversary of my 29th birthday...but didn't get a cake :(

Learning Together at Home

A very happy belated birthday to you both! (I'd have chosen the "pretty" cake too. ;)

Serving the King

Happy, Happy Birthday!! How great is that that you two share the date! Love it!(And for what's it worth, that would definitely be a good pick up line.):) And seriously, still crack up at your header photo every time I visit!

Happy birthday! I'd have eaten both, and then I'd have regretted it. Thank goodness I don't share a birthday with anyone in my house!


Happy belated Birthday! How hilarious that you and Mike share the same birthday. While both cakes look yummy, I am a sucker for frosting. And that pretty cake sure does look pretty! Nice job! I probably would've eaten both of them til my stomach hurt!

And kuddos to Jordan. What a big sister and amazing daughter! Wow. Hats off to her!


Happy belated birthday to you and Mike. How sweet of Jordan to watch the children so you two could have a nice dinner. :)
We miss you all. It's amazing to see how the children are growing!
Katie is almost as tall as me now.
How time flies!

Football and Fried Rice

What a sweetheart Jordan is!

Our birthdays are (one) day apart and we always have to have (two) cakes too :) And even though there are only (five) of us, they usually go pretty quick!

Happy Birthday(s)!
