Fun Monday blog name and food stuff...


This weeks Fun Monday is hosted by Mariposa. Here challenge this week is this:

1) Please share to us how the NAME of your BLOG was made? I can't wait to hear interesting funny stories!
2) Please share to us (in words or photo, though a combination of both will be a bonus!) your favorite/ most common dish!

Number one was not to difficult really. The name is My4Kids and well I have 4 kids....these are them...


I originally started this blog for myself as a journal. I love to take pictures especially of the kids and I scrapbook. I wanted to have somewhere to write things down. My thoughts, things they were doing, their difficulties and the fun times we had. I always had a journal as I was growing up but I'm not a fan of writing in a book and I loved the idea of being able to include pictures. After a few months of occasional blogging for myself I started checking out some other blogs and commenting and soon I had others commenting and checking out mine as well. All along though this blog has always been about my family and My 4 Kids. For those of you who don't normally come around here this blog has also chronicled our deciding to move to Alaska and our recent move her this last August so for me it has really been an outlet. I love all the friends I have made, I have met a lot of people with kids who have similar issues to mine and have become at least email buddies with several and I do seriously consider many of you my friends. My kids all know who you are!

Number 2? Well I'm gonna cheat on this one. We had a Fun Monday back in September that was titled Your Favorite recipe so here is the link to that post

34 people had something to say:

You kept it simple - but it works.
Of course, this means you can't have any more children. (:

jennifer said...

Beautiful 4 kids! Thanks for the link. I'll go check it out - Jen

Mariposa said...

I've been reading your blog for quite a long time now and have loved following your journey with your family to Alaske. I think you were so brave to take it and I'm looking forward to hearing how life pans out.

Junebug said...

I liked the idea of being able to preserve some memories especially with pictures. I thought maybe someday my kids could look at it and see what mom thought. :D

ellen b said...

What a wonderful blessing to have 4 kids! It is so nice to connect with other bloggers. I've had a lot of fun too. What an adventurous family you are moving to Alaska! It must be beautiful...

Beckie said...

It is fun to follow the happenings and adventures of your family through this blog! A very fitting name indeed.

And they are lovely kids - totally deserving of a blog that talks about them!

Good way to pursue both your interests--the scrapbooking, photography and also writing about family experiences. I hope you enjoy living in Alaska. My friends come there every year--they love the state.

Nekked Lizard Lady said...

I kept a journal in HS and still have it somewhere. It was a great outlet then and this is a great outlet now. Though NLM is more verbal than I am, I love playing with the design and balance and stuff. Your kids are adorable and you're a good mom for letting them in on this part of your life!

Debbie said...

That picture of your kids is so sweet--seeing them all in a line like that. I imagine one day at least one or two of them will be really interested in what you've written over the ages in this blog.

lisa marie said...

I bet your glad I didn't snag that name first since I too have four kids. :) We think too much alike. :) Sorry, I'm slow coming 'round.

Steffi said...

That´s a nice photo of your sweet 4 kids!

Kila said...

Wow, all 4 in one photo!

I always thought two boys and two girls would be the perfect family.

Irish Coffeehouse said...

WOW- Alaska! I definitely would have started a blog too, also for an outlet and to keep everyone up-to-date on our new endeavors.

I must say, while it sounds chilly, I LOVE the snow picture! The pups are definitely cute too!

Thanks for sharing!
