Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Last year, just about every blog I visited was joining in on the Ultimate Blog Party. I really wanted to join in but some how I missed the fun! This year when I starting seeing the UBP badges popping up I was determined to not miss out. So here I am!

If you are family or already a friend you know most of this stuff. Hey, maybe you will learn something! If you are new here, WELCOME!

My name is Miranda. I am a 31 year old wife and homeschooling momma. Last November, My husband and I celebrated our 13 year anniversary!

I am the momma to 4 amazing little people. In all honesty they are not all that little anymore. Taylor turned 13 last month. (I still can not believe I am a mother to a teenager.) Alyssa is 11 and we were also blessed with twins. Carter and Morgan are 8.

Basically, my blog started out as an online journal for family and friends to stay up to date on our life. It has actually turned into more. I love the outlet. I love the friends. I love sharing about our life journey.

It has always been my passion to create memories with my children. To enjoy life and have fun! Obviously there is more to life than fun and games though. ;) Its also my passion to raise my children to serve the Lord, to love and serve others and to learn to make godly, wise decisions. (With a whole lot of other things thrown in!)

This blog has been a wonderful way to record those memories. It is always fun to look back and see the things we did last summer, last Christmas or the lesson we learned last month.

I have the "about me" section above if you want to check that out. Hubby tells me all the time that I don't fit into any box. That I have my own. Haha... I think he means that in a good way. ;) I love the outdoors. I help him gut a deer or build a tree house and the next day be dressed in pearls. Ok, I actually do not own any pearls but you get the idea. I love camping, hiking and fishing. I also love photography and gardening. I love learning new things and experiencing life.

When I was a teenager I wanted to go off to college and become an accountant. I planned to live in a big city, get married and have 2 kids. A boy and a girl, of course! That is not my life at all and I would not change it for the world. I live in a small town. I have never worked outside of the home. Well, except for my mall job when I was 17. I love my handful of children and long to have more. I always hear that Gods plans are always better than our own. It's true!

My blogging usually revolves around learning to be a godly wife, homeschooling, loving and learning with my little ones, raising a daughter with a disability, going from a city girl to a country girl and attempting to become self sufficient. Basically, my life journey!

I hope you stick around. I would love to get to know you!

I'm stopping by from UBP '11. It's great meeting you and your family. I always love finding other twin families online. My twin sister and I (along with our younger sister) blog together. I think being a twin is one of best things in my life. :-)

Hi! I'm visiting from the UBP - #73 (Being Made New - http://tinahollenbeck.blogspot.com) on the Christian List. Very glad to get to know you a bit - like you, I homeschool, too - and I hope you might be able to stop by my place, too. :^)

Stopping by from the UBP to say hello.

I have a box of my own as well. ;) My daughter will be turning 13 next year. How did that happen? It should be interesting homeschooling a high school child. Whew!

Very nice to "meet" you. I have been married for almost 12 years but we only have one right now. We are planning for number 2 next summer. (I hope it works out that way!) I am doing some last minute, late night UBP11 hopping.

I hope you and your lovely family enjoy your weekend! Blessings,
