I'm Erin Jo. I'm thinking, writing, dreaming, mothering, loving, living, praising, BLESSED to be Fiona to my Shrek and Mommy to my four amazing kiddos.

Shrek is "like an onion with many layers" but has a heart of gold. He's my husband and my friend, and we just get better all the time.

Lily is my first baby and only girl. She's smart, funny, tall and kind. Keeping up with this girl is a challenge and a joy. She's terrific!

Max is one part ogre, two parts lover and all boy! Our little man has a temper but gives the best hugs of anyone I know!

Colby is as ornery as he looks. He flirts shamelessly, even with strangers. He's all mouth and curls and the loudest by far.

Luke is the baby of the family, but holds his own. He's happy and adorable. And he's a terrible sleeper. =)

A Whole Lot of Magic

We’ve been so busy with holiday magic that there just hasn’t been time for a proper blog post. In fact, there isn’t time now, because, even though I’m very tired, I’m the only one in the house awake. I must sleep when the family sleeps!

But really, our days and nights have been full of family and friends and fun. There have been gifts galore, every kind of dip and cookie imaginable and lots of places to be.

Tomorrow? Well, tomorrow I think I’ll rest. I’ll get up when all the kids pile into my bed for a snuggle/tickle fest. I’ll be tired, but I’ll have a spring in my step because I’ll remember I have a Keurig now, and that the coffee I’ll soon drink will make me feel like a million bucks. I’ll make breakfast, check Facebook, break up fights, clean messes that will magically reappear and I’ll remember to sit down and enjoy the beautiful chaos that is my life.

And I’ll think about being a better blogger…. later!

For now, here are photos of the kids on Christmas morning. I love the one at the end: Colby discovering and cleaning up Santa’s leftovers. I didn’t get a still photo of the placement of Baby Jesus and the singing of birthday wishes, but it’s on the new vid cam. It was pretty sweet!

I’ll be back again soon. For now, I can’t write; I have to live it out loud.
