Let me try this again, Hi, my name is Lisa

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
And I have 32 month old twin boys named David and Greg. These little monkeys are the youngest of five. My oldest is a 10 year daughter named Jane followed by my 7 year old daughter Kate and my 4 year old son Ean.

I'm married to my husband of 13 years Kent. We live in Idaho, I scrapbook, make rag dolls, tie dye, quilt, can goodies from the yard and do whatever else I can fit in.

I was hoping to meet and discuss challenges with raising multiples, cause it is a bit different then raising my singletons.

I love meeting other twin moms.

(and I meant from my title, what I meant as a sort of introduction morphed into a huge birthing choice ~and everything else~ discussion. So a clean slate, maybe?)

Howdy!

My twins are 8 weeks old as of yesterday. And I'm a home canner, too, but not this year! Last night, I did peel & seed a bunch of tomatoes to make & freeze tomato soup today, though.

Hi Lisa :

I desperately want to quilt and am awaiting the joys of the reality of twins hopefully sometime in November...

Hmmm homemade tomato soup. *drool*

I canned grape jelly from our grapes in the backyard last week. This stuff is heavenly.

I can barely remember life when my guys were eight weeks. It was all such a blur, lol.

<3 Twins are a joy. Children are a joy. You're almost there!

I started quilting before any of my boys were born. I had more time then. lol

Hello! Christy, mom of 5 (11, *8* as of yesterday, 6, and 16 month old twins). I'm in school now to become an RN and hope to start school to become a CNM sometime in the next five years.

I scrapbook, sometimes make homemade pickles (as much canning as I've ever done), crochet, sew a little, knit a little, write sometimes, and run a natural parenting shop online (and it will open a local retail location in a few weeks! yahoo!). I'm in the process of getting accredited as a LLL leader since we don't have a LLL in my town, and will probably finish my certification as a doula sometime this fall. We homeschooled up until this year, and my 3 oldest are currently in public schools.

Anyway, that's us.

OH, and I made TWO quilt squares a few years back and turned them into insets for couch pillows. It was way more detail than I ever want to do again!

Hi! I'm Kara. My girls are 4 months old now ::

I don't knit, I used to crochet, and my sewing machine broke about 7 years ago.

I would love to learn to can foods, though!!!

Canning foods is fun and homemade applesauce will spoil you, you'll never like store bought again. At least it's spoiled me. lol

Hi Lisa, my name is Christy. My husdand, Eric and I will be married for 10 years this year! We have 6 children, their ages are in my sig, and id twins due in Jan/Feb. Currently we live in Australia, but will be moving to Oklahoma next year!

I would love to quilt. I have heaps and heaps of clothes (all my kids handy-me downs) that I am saving to eventually "one" day make a quilt for each of them. Im secretly hoping to find an old grandma that would love to do it for me!! I just cant imagine ever having the time to make 8 quilts!!

Christy, I made quilts out of my dad's dress shirts after he died. It was a wonderful keepsake for our family members. I do need to do quilts for my boys. I've done the girls, so two down, three to go.

Wow! You amaze me! I had started cutting them up. Cutting off the ends and saving buttons, but I couldnt even keep up with that! How do you do it with 5 kids?? How did you learn? I will only have 3 more than you and I feel so overwelmed thinking of having twins. I just dont know how to get everything done in one day and have energy. Between, 8 kids, BF, the house and homeschooling, when would I ever have time??

Sorry I didnt mean to make this a quilting thread...

Hey there, I'm Elizabeth, mama to a darling dervish of a 4 year old, and 5 month old twins. I recently wrote the "I'm going crazy" post, as there are moments that I think I am possibly, truly, going crazy
I'm a massage therapist and way back when I was an actress. I love to travel, but have put that on hold for the next twenty years
I wish I could say that I quilt, or craft, or sew, but I don't. I am learning to cook, though, and garden, and also hope to someday learn to can.
I love the mamas on this board, and I welcome you!

I don't homeschool, that makes a big difference in time! I thought about homeschooling but when my eldest was three, her speech was horrid. She had no grammar or syntax, she inserted jargon in her sentences. It was BAD. I figured out I was in over my head and all my kids have needed speech and special help in various things. So I'm in awe of you homeschooling your whole brood!

Don't apologize for quilt talk, lol. I love quilt talk.

Thank you so much for the welcome Elizabeth. I really appreciate it!

I'm Michelle. I have 26 month old twin girls (fraternal). I homeschool my two older boys (7 & 5 years old). I do a touch of canning (this year's total is just 14 jars of diced tomatoes), with a little jam making (usually freezer jam) and other freezing as well. I don't really quilt, but I like to sew clothing (an occasional piece that I really enjoy). I once put together a bedspread from a Thomas the Tank Engine panel and some simple piecing along the edges, which I quilted to a piece of fleece, but I'm not really a quilter as such. I love to cook, read, and speak French as well (though I haven't really had the occasion to speak French in ages).

Nice to meet you aja.
