I am just a simple mom of with a blog idea. I figure I best start out with the simple facts. They are after all the easiest to put down. Hi! I am Brandi. I am a wife, mom, and friend. I am wife to a sometimes wonderful husband that despite his many UGHs I love dearly. I am mom to 5 beautiful children. MacKenzie is 7 and she is definitely my DIVA extraordinaire Savanna is 5 and she is my dressy tomboy…high heels and dirt. Braden is 2 and he is my lil bubba…mean as the blazes, but can manage to get out of anything. And then last but not least are my identical twins Connor and Colton. They are 11 months old and silly as they come. I am friend to many…my best friend Melinda, and my sisters in crime Multiplicity. Which is how I came across the blog thingy.
We live in a small town called Chipley. It is in Florida, just in case you were wondering. The girls attend KMS and are in 1st and K. The boys all stay home with me, but hopefully soon I will have them in daycare full time.
My husband, Donnie, has led a very full life already. Been enlisted in the Army twice, was a civil engineer for 20 years off and on (when not in the army). And now is restarting his dads logging business.
MacKenzie is my beautiful Diva…as I stated earlier. She is smart as they come. And a bit smartassy…but she gets that naturally! LOL She is doing really good in school so far this year, and we are noticing she is really good at math. She loves math! She is also very artistic. She loves drawing, writing books, and coloring. Yes I said writing books. She takes whole notebooks, numbers the pages and then proceeds to fill the pages up with all kinds of stuff…pictures, words, you name it. She played soccer for the first time this year, and fell in love with the sport. Now she talks about becoming a professional soccer player. She informed me today that she was going to play for a National Soccer Team. And her other passion is music. She loves singing, and begged for a guitar for her birthday.
Savanna is as I said my dressy tomboy. She loves to be outside and cannot stand to be told she can’t go out. The thing is she only wants to wear dresses and heels while playing in the dirt, climbing trees, and playing. Funniest sight, but it just makes me love her more. She tends to be a bit arguementative, and stubborn, but like her sister she gets it naturally! She is a beautiful child and can win anyone over with her loving personality and big green eyes. She also just lost her first tooth! YAY!
Braden is my monster. I love him like theres no tomorrow, but the child can make you feel like you just went through an F5 hurricane within mere minutes of meeting him. He is very shy. A bit attached to my hip and his dads hip, but I am hoping that when he starts in daycare we can break that.
Connor and Colton are my babies. They are 11 months old and were surprises. Both are growing so fast and learning new things everyday. Connor has recently started saying What’s that. And it’s plain when he says it. And he loves the phone. He picks it up and goes ello. or hey. It is amazing watching him grow. Connor is the oldest of the twins by 4 minutes. I’ll post the birth story eventually. Connor is also my flirt. He likes waving and hollering at purtty girls! Now Colton on the other hand is shy and reserved but can squeel!!! When someone new comes near or speaks to him he puts his head down and bats his eyelashes. It is adorable! He is so active and always trying to get into something.
So now you know a little about my family and myself. I am sure over the next few days I will fill in more blanks…birth story…multiplicity…and day to day stuff going on around here. I hope I don’t bore you to tears!!
