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


My Life Lately

Life moves so quickly.  There has been so much to ponder lately, I sometime spend half the night thinking about "life" in general.

Miss Eva, obviously, needed braces.  She wears them well.

She also celebrated her 10th birthday.  Wow.  Double digits.  It is hard for me to process how fast my girls are growing up.  I told her after she turned 10 I wasn't purchasing her anymore camouflage clothing.  We'll see...

My daughter-in-law, Tia, also celebrated a birthday.  The lovely lady stopped by after work for her requested dirt cake.  She has now moved into the second trimester and I still can't tell she is pregnant.

I recently got an email from one of Joy's teachers at co op informing me that Joy couldn't see the board.  I had wondered why she always made funny faces.  I am assuming she was trying to focus on what she couldn't see.  

Schoolwork is much easier to see now; but she struggles getting used to the glasses sitting on her tiny nose.

My sweet Ivy is now a teenager.  How fast that happened!

She chose Rocky Road Pizza for her "cake".

She has definitely come a long way from those first few frightening weeks at home.  I love her so much.  She is such a sweet, gentle girl.

After eating her dinner and pizza, everyone hung out and decided to color in Ivy's adult coloring books.  Such bums.

Ivy also go an old arcade controller with the fun games of my childhood.  I was immediately hooked.  I've had to pull myself away quite a few times because it is her game, not mine.

Evan Seth got in on the action.

Moxie always enjoys it when her friends come to play.  This is Chip and Hobo.  I don't think Chip has many years left.  He was Tia's since she was a little girl.

Moxie decided she wanted a chain piercing.  How gross is that?

She seemed obliviously to the drool hanging off her jowls.

Tia enjoyed a new "Medusa do" compliments of Eva and her pick-up-sticks.

So, that's My Life Lately.  It is good and I am so blessed to have this gang around me.

6 kind words:


I so enjoyed all your pictures, Cheri. Your girls are really growing up, and you are just as pretty as always. ♥


A busy household! I thought my life would become a slower pace as the kids grew, but I have found the opposite to be true! I always think of Ivy since she and Haleigh share the same birthday! Glad everyone had great birthdays in your family! Joy looks adorable in her glasses!

Exciting times for all of you! Rachel was nine months pregnant and barely showed at all. Crazy.....she jogged until two days before she gave birth. The braces and glasses look cute, and Ivy is quite the young lady, isn't she? Enjoy your crazy only gets crazier when the grandbaby comes! Are they going to find out the gender?


Enjoyed the update about your lives!

Cheri, love the update. So many birthdays. Faith has to wear glasses now too, and you are so right... Those tiny little noses don't hold them up very well. :)


Going back and looking over my favorite blogs and realized that I had not commented! I loved this update, the new glasses, (too cute), braces, (love little girls in braces), and Ivy a teenager, wow! All such beautiful girls with unique personalities, likes and interest! I guess it won't be long before the baby arrives. I hope all is going well with the pregnancy! What a joy it must be to have your son and daughter in law near by! Is Jordan still in Hawaii?
