Welcome to the Little House, I’m Your Host

Hi. My name is Allison, and I live a crazy life.

Let me begin my introducing myself. I am a wife and a mama. I have interests other than that, but they are hard to come up with. I seem to have forgotten exactly who I am somewhere in the last 5-6 years. That is exactly what I am working on right now.

I remember a few things about myself.  I love to cook. I love to craft. I love the color purple. My current flight of fancy is that I want to learn to play the banjo.I come up with brilliant ideas at 4am that look a little lackluster in the daylight.

(Full disclosure, this picture is from 5/16. We’ll get a decent updated picture of the whole fam eventually!)

Along with my husband and the boys, we have three dogs (two are ours and one we are babysitting for the next few months) and 10 chickens. Our house is busy. It is loud. On nights where my mom takes the boys for a sleepover, it is unnervingly quiet. You know, the quiet that means someone has swiped the butter off the counter and finger painted the whole kitchen. That hasn’t happened in your house? Well then.

There are dishes in my sink, piles of laundry waiting to be folded, and my house is a wreck. This is real life. I’m just trying to give myself enough grace to survive life in the testosterhome.
