Quiet Night......

This is not a normal night at the Stroupe home. Normally you have little feet running around, sounds of children playing, or mommy and daddy just sitting around talking about their day. Not tonight, my husband is working late, he does this often at least once a week. The 2 older children Gage and Chloe are staying with there grandparents. Gage is going with his grandpa early tomorrow morning to go hunting, and Chloe is just staying with grandma,just because.

I hear the ceiling fan spinning, I hear the wind blowing outside, and I hear Hunter here in the living room quietly playing with his GI Joe's, and Clarissa sound asleep in her bed.

I don't know what I would do with out my family, the noise, laughter, and a little bickering here and there. What would I do with just 1 or 2 children, and some people would think I am crazy going on my 5th child.

You see 5 children is not a lot to my husband and I, most of our friends have 6-10 children. That is normal to us.

I always look forward to times when my family is gone and I can have time to myself but when it does happen, I find I just wander around wishing they'd come home! It's a good thing children don't all leave home at once!

Oh my, I was so suprised to see a pic with your hubby holding a baby. Not that that is odd, just wondering if you had had a new little one to join in the fellowship there.

I am picking you for the bookworm award. You can pick it up tomorrow sometime at my blog

I would like to Thank all of you for stopping by. I did enjoy my quiet time, although I am not use to it, I know that I would not want it to happen to often.

Mrs. B
No I did not have the baby yet, this is Hunter in the picture. It is kind of funny that you said that cause Cindi ( sister ) called me, asking me if I had the baby with out telling her. I am not expecting until around the 10th.
