Come on Barbie, Let's Go Party!

I'm joining Five Minutes for Mom's Ultimate Blog Party. See? (For newer posts, scroll down!)

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Seems like fun, and there are prizes. I haven't even had a chance to look at what's available for prizes yet.

A little about me: I'm a former real estate lawyer turned stay-at-home mom to four kids~my daughter Meg is 8. She is a voracious reader, a hockey player, a softball player, and a handful. My son Drew is 4. He loves dogs, books, trucks, cars, hockey and taunting his sisters. And the twins, Annabelle and Isabelle (Annie and Izzie for short) are busy 2 year olds who keep me hopping with broken bones, lots of running around, and big smiles. We live in the woods on 13 acres of land, near to my husband of 10 years Doug's office. We're native Mainers and wouldn't have it any other way. I blog to share my joys and frustrations of raising four kids.

Join me? Head on over to the website, sign Mr. Linky and join!

Oh, I looked at the prizes, and I would love these:
