I have really enjoyed doing these interviews and I hope you have too. My last one for the year is with Mandee. She has a cute blog and very cute boys. I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas and that you are excited about starting the year 2011. Enjoy the interview!
1. Can you tell me about your family?
I would LOVE to tell you about my family! My husband and I have been together for 14 years. We have been married for 11 years. Just 3 months after we got married we got pregnant with our first child. We now have 5 BOYS ages 10, 7, 5, 2 and 4 months. I am a stay at home Mom, which has been great for my family. There are days with 5 boys that I want to put some earplugs in, but there is never a day that they don't make me laugh! God has chosen me to be a Mother of boys and I am definitely up for the challenge!
2. What is the best part about being a mommy of five boys?
Being Mommy of 5 boys is very rewarding. I feel very blessed, and I have actually put "Blessed with Boys" at the top of my blog since that is how I feel. I would have to say the best part is the FUN that goes on in our house! I have a house full of a bunch of little clowns...he he! :)
3. What made you decide to start a blog?
I started blogging just a year ago. A couple of people around me had been talking about it, and it was mentioned that I should start a blog to share all of the Funny things my boys say and do with the world. I knew that there were some that wouldn't understand, but there is always someone out there that can relate, and that is why I started my blog, because I wanted to find that person that could relate and make them smile and say, I get it! (If you get a chance you must read my first blog post-July of 2009)
4. Are you doing anything special during the holidays (either for your blog or for your family)?
I have decided this year that I am not going to do the blog event that I had planned to do. It is a lot of work, and while I want to give my fans great freebies I have decided that I need some time to relax and enjoy my family this holiday season. There will however still be new giveaways on my blog every day! My family and I will be celebrating the holidays together with our extended family. It should be a nice, relaxing holiday season this year. :)
5. Please share a favorite holiday tradition or memory that you have.
We are actually just starting a new tradition with our children that I am very excited about. Since we open presents on Christmas morning, this year we will let the kids open one present on Christmas Eve, their new pajamas! They can wear these pajamas to bed on Christmas Eve and look spiffy in all of those pictures that Mom insists on taking of them on Christmas morning. I am excited to see how the kids like this and know that they will be excited to just be opening a gift a day early! Another thing that my children always look forward to is their letters from Santa every year. They have already received them this year and were so excited! This is something really special that the boys look forward to every year!
You can find Mandee on her blog Raising My 5 Sons or on facebook. I hope you will check her out and read about her adventures with 5 wonderful boys.
