It's Party Time!!!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Welcome to my party here at Clay In His Hands! This party is hosted by the gracious ladies over at 5 Minutes for Mom, and is part of the Ultimate Blog Party 2009.

I’ve got coffee, tea, mik…whatever interests you really. So grab a cup of your favorite drink and come right over here. I’ve made a whole bunch of brownies, cheesecake, cookies (or whatever you want it to be) so feel free to grab you some!

Great! Now pull up a chair and I’ll tell you a little about me… I’m Sarah, wife to Matt (the best husband in the world.)

I’m also a stay-at-home mom to Abigail (our 16 month old,) and twin girls Emma & Sophia (3 months.)

I love many things, but first and foremost my passions are my God, my home, and my family. I have a lot of interests too including photography, children, healthy eating, natural living, home decorating, organization, saving money, and learning new things.

My blog is filled with moments of my experiences as a wife and mother, colored by my goals for living a healthy and frugal life. If you like what you see, feel free to become a follower or to subscribe to this blog (both can be found in my right-hand side column.)

Thank you for stopping by!! That was so much fun! I can’t wait to learn about you too! So let’s get back to partying!!

Have fun!!

Hi, nice to 'meet' you....coming over from the party! What precious, adorable kiddos! I love twins! Glad to meet another believer here in blogland!

Hopping over from UBP! I am working hard to becoming more frugal and am happy to find someone who shares the same interest and beliefs!

Beautiful Girls! I'm a new and very novice mommy blogger just browsing through the Blog Party. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

You have a beautiful family!

I hope you'll come over for a visit. I'm a Christian too.

Such little ones! My first 2 were 18 months apart and I thought that was a challenge - you've got 3! Are you getting your rest? Are you taking care of yourself? I hope so. Squeeze in a little party/girl time.


~*Michelle*~ said...

Hi there.....I popped over when I saw your blog title....so you now have a new Jesus freak friend, whether you like it or not!

Your girls are precious......what a blessing.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend,

Jen @ One Mom's World...
If you read this I can't get to your blog for some reason. Maybe you could leave me a direct link? I'd love to come over to meet you!

I'm glad I found your blog. It was an encouragement just reading this post! I'm pregnant with our second baby and there is going to be about 14 1/2 months between our two. Most people respond in a "negative" way to hearing that news...so to find another mom with children so close in age is great! I subscribed to you blog. :-

Rhonda said...

Stopping by on the party journey. I will be back - I can never follow too many believers with preschoolers!

Hi, Sarah.. it's so nice to meet you! And, what precious little girls you do have... adorable! I love the look of your blog -- I'm sure I'll be back soon to get to know you better.

Enjoy the party!

You are one busy, young, mother! God bless your precious heart. Hang in there! I've been a mom for 20 years now, and I've lived some wild moments in those 20 years. 4 kids (19, 17, 8, 6) have kept me very busy and very mindful about the sacred trust I've been given to be a parent.

Keep to it, dear one.

Blessings and peace to you~elaine
