fresh clean start!

Oh, sometimes it is hard to leave the past behind!

This past summer I won a contest and was awarded a blog makeover from Ruby & Roja Design. After picking and editing graphics, going back and forth on colors and basically Christy rocking it out of the park where design is concerned - here it is! Let me introduce you to the new and improved home of testosterone overload!

If this is your first time here, let me introduce you to the crew (they have been given new blog names to protect their undercover work):

wyo antelope025 Hunter: He is our eldest son and an intellectual, independent, inventive seven year old. He loves to hunt with his dad and is a great friend.

IMG_0360Sauce: Our six year old sports fanatic. This is the boy who is constantly running and jumping or throwing a ball. He has a million dollar smile and is constantly looking for someone to play a game of soccer, baseball or basketball with.

P1020958Rufus: He will be four in a couple of weeks. This one is as sweet as pie, but tough as nails in a challenge. He works hard to keep up with his big brothers!

P1020922Squirt: Our latest addition to our crew. At just over a year old, Squirt is adored by all his brothers, except when he's getting into their stuff. He has a mouth full of teeth and an appetite to match. We hear new words and see new skills every day.

P1010704My Man is a passionate hunter and skier that masquerades as a sales manager during the week (we are way into undercover work here). He swept me off my feet 12 years ago and we haven't looked back. Our life is full of noise and laughter (and lots of messes).

We wouldn't trade it for anything!


  1. Your new look totally ROCKS! That Ruby & Roja team is amazing, aren't they? Your boys are too cute. Love the pictures.

  2. I love your new design, and I LOVED working with you on it. Your family of men is beautiful!

    I'm so glad you're happy.

  3. I've been a lurker for a week or two.. (sorry.. I hate lurkers.. I wish they'd just say hi.. but then when they do.. then kinda freak me out for a minute.. so dont let me freak you out.. k??) annnnyyyway..
    LOVE the new design.. those girls are so freakin' talented. It's really really cute! that's all.. back to lurking!! :)

  4. I just found your site clicking around the cwo links. I'm also a mom to 4 boys and am looking for a kindred spirit who shares the same blessing (and messes, noises, etc...) Nice to 'meet' and i hope to stop by time to time. Blessings to you and family.

  5. Love the new look. I'll have to change my "favorites" page to this new one. Love the pics. of the kids too. They are great!

  6. Looks good, Laurie! It is perfect for your family. I know you are excited. I love it!

About Me

My photo
Messy and wonderful perfectly describes my life as a wife and mom of five. I'm passionate about advocating for orphans by telling their stories and encouraging adoption and orphan care. My schedule is messy and wonderful as I am charged with four sons and one daughter. We love living in our little mountain ski town. We do a little camping, a little skiing, a little hunting, and a lot of laughing and loving. Life is dirty and loud around here but we wouldn't want it any other way. Okay, maybe a little less dirty!
