Ultimate Blog Party 2012!

It's time for the Ultimate Blog Party 2012! 



Hi, I'm Amber.  Welcome to The Mommy Earth!

Last year was the first year I joined in on the party, on the very last day, so I'm hoping to be more involved this time. 

I'm a mother to 6 children, ages infant through 12 years old.  I stay home with them and homeschool them.
Here I am with my baby, Abraham.  He's 7 months old.  This was taken recently by my oldest child, Bethany.  She got a camera for her birthday and has been enjoying it.  And I've been enjoying her pictures. :)

Here's a picture of all of my children, taken last Thanksgiving.  Aren't they precious?  Peter (the one w/the soccer shirt) is looking at the piano.  Can you tell he'd rather be playing it than posing for photos?

I'm a Christian. My husband works for the church as an evangelist.  We've been married nearly 15 years.

I included some family photos on last year's UBP post, but I guess I may not have any decent ones yet since we became a family of 8.  The one below isn't great, but it does have all of us in it and was taken this month.


I post various things here, on topics like:
You can also link to some of my most frequently-visited and favorite posts:
I am PR friendly, though I've only begun to get into that and my time for it is limited.  I am willing to honestly review select products that interest me.  I would only promote something I genuinely liked. 

Hope you enjoy looking around.  Leave a comment and/or follow me if you like.  I had fun meeting people last year, and look forward to meeting more this time around.  Thanks for stopping by!  :)

    1. Yeah, Pinterest is great especially for certain things but I keep thinking of more I could use it for and am finding the possibilities rather mind-boggling. Thanks for stopping by here too!
