Ultimate Blog Party 2009

In honor of the 5 Minutes for Mom annual Blog Party my children are throwing you a party. Grab your party hat and join the chaos, I mean festivities!!

We worked really hard on the decorations!

We'll play you some music

Do a little face painting

Here are the flowers we picked just for you
There are yummy things to eat!

Oh, and cake! Lots of cake and feel free to dig in with both hands. That's the way we do it around here!

If you get tired just take a nap anywhere you'd like, someone will come around and cover you up!

Of course, there's always room for one more in this bed!

And don't worry about cleaning up a thing.

We'll take care of it!

While you're here, maybe you can figure out why Mommy named her blog "It Feels Like Chaos".

Do you feel any chaos?

No, the real inspiration for the blog name is the Sanctus Real song "Whatever You're Doing (Something Heavenly). Listen to a clip of the song in the sidebar and Check out the lyrics here.

The lyrics beautifully describes our home that even though "it feels like chaos, somehow there's peace." and we pray that "whatever He's doing" that it is "bigger than me".

Thanks for stopping by our party! It was so great to have you!

Y'all come back now, ya hear?

Often I feel my own life is chaos, with 4 children 7 & under (3 in 3 years!). I'm sure I'm going to grow a lot from reading your blog. I'm trying to grow in peace with my reality and accept that it's just not going to be like everyone elses. ♥ I'm so excited to have found your blog. :D
