you fabulous sugar doll you

i received this fabulous award from tara at keeping up with the kellys a couple of months ago and i am attempting to catch up on my award acceptances. tara has a fabulous blog herself and an adorable, almost two year old, son that she is the stay at home mommy to. she is a great blogging friend. please stop by and meet her some time, you will not be sorry. i mean it when i say she is a fabulous sugar doll!

to accept this award, i am supposed to tell 10 things about myself then nominate 10 other fabulous bloggers to receive the award for themselves.

here goes...
1. i got married when i was 25.
2. i had my first baby, josiah, when i was 27.
3. he got to the ripe old age of 9 months and then i found out baby #2 was on her way.
4. i had my second baby, rachel, when i was 29.
5. she got to the ripe old age of 7 months and then i found out baby #3 was on her way.
6. i had my third baby, olivia, when i was 30.
7. she got to the ripe old age of 18 months and then i found out baby #4 was on her way.
8. i had my fourth baby, amanda, when i was 32. (four babies in 5 years) and i loved every single minute of it, until they started hitting their teenage years. JK
9. i had my fifth baby, jacob, when i was 41. (josiah finally got his baby brother)
10. i love being a mommy! (most of the time)

now to pass on this fabulous sugar doll award to some of my fabulous friends. the last award that i passed on, i did a random selection from my blogroll and regular commenting friends. because i think all of you are fabulous, i want to do that again. i liked doing it that way. it felt like i pulled the names out of a hat, kind of like a lottery. so, i am going to do that again. without further adieu and in no particular order, the award goes to....

jackie @ homestead wannabes
valerie @ from our front porch looking in
stacie @ a firefighter's wife
bridget @ among the chaos
alicia @ yaya stuff
angela @ free spirit haven
mimi @ he & me + 3
julie @ jewelz sightings
joanne @ blessed
lesli @ one day at a time

The Real Me! said...

Wow that's a lot of being pregnant in such a short span. But I hear that's the way to do it if you can. LOL! All your children are beautiful too my friend.
Congrats on your award!
Big hugs

Angela said...

I just added this cute award to my slideshow on my side bar. ((hugs)) How cool to see it was picked randomly and Yaya and I are 'sitting' right beside each other 'accepting' our awards. That is just too funny. I love how the Lord works things out..may be random Christy, but definitely lead by our Precious Lord..

Love you beautiful girl.

oh and my verification word was 'reall'. One of things that I love about you..YOUR REAL!!

He & Me + 3 said...

Very cool award. thank you for thinking of me and passing it onto me. Congrats to you. Wow you had a few busy years. LOL Your children are beautiful.

Tara said...

You are too kind! I almost teared up just reading your first paragraph!

You were very busy and kept the diaper industry in business for sure! Loved reading your timeline because I had no idea they were all so close or it had just never registered.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Brandi said...

Congrats on your award! Wow, my head is spinning reading about your pregnancies! :)

Valerie said...

Hi Christy Rose.

Wow...what abundant blessings you were given...4 babies in 5 years!!! Tara's did keep the disposable or cloth diaper industry on their toes!!!

Mary Catherine was 18 mo. old when I realized I was pregnant with Benjamin...quite a surprise to say the least after an in vitro pregnancy!

Anyway, thanks for nominating me! When I get my post up I will link back to you!


Stacie, A Firefighter's Wife said...

Veronica said...

Congrats on the award!

You are my hero to be able to be a Mommy to so many little ones at the same time!

I'm trying to enjoy my time with my girls while they're little. Not sure how I'll deal with having three teenage girls in the house when that time comes!!!

Kristin said...

Wow! That is amazing to have them all so close in age. I guess i didn't realize they were that close. I love reading these facts about you. It's fun! Congrats on your award!

Crown of Beauty said...

dear Christy
I always meant to tell you this funny story...for many months I thought you had two names - Christy and Rose and that you used both to sign your blog posts...
until one day I realized that Rose was your family name!

Well, here I am again at your blog and reading up those that I have missed. I loved the ten things you shared about yourself. I know it isn't easy having five children in your country where you hardly have any outside help in running your household, and wearing many role hats all at the same time, so I must tell you I admire you for your efforts at being a godly mom and wife.

I loved you I AM WEAk and I AM STRONG posts... the pictures you painted with your words stir my heart.

And the picture of you at 6 with your sister in the neighborhood where you grew up...that was so precious.

Thank you for taking time to share you heart. I enjoy getting to know you more as a blog friend, and finding out what God is doing in your life.


Cassie said...

Christy said...

I love reading how your family grew and so closely as well!

God Bless

elaine @ peace for the journey said...

I had my first two in my early 20's. Second two in my mid-30's. I don't recommend babies in decades. I'm still learning my times tables, and I'm over it. I'm also exhausted most days and my bones are creakier than ever.

But I'm blessed and well-loved and look forward to the year ahead of us.
