Hello everyone!  My name is Jessa(30) and mama to Alyssa(10), Autumn(9), Mariah(8), Matthew(8), Blake(6), Laila(3), and Athena is due in September. =)

I am a sahm, and I love to clean and organize! LOL  I don't like clutter, so I've become very creative on keeping my house on track...but I'm always looking for new ideas and creations. 

Aside from that, I enjoy to cook, garden, read, arts and crafts, and I make cakes for birthdays, weddings, and babyshowers on the side.  =)

We just recently moved and had to down-size considerably, so I'm giong nuts trying to figure out where to put everything! 

I look forward to making new friends!!! =)

Welcome!  I'm pretty new here, too.  What's it like having 6 kiddos and being pregnant again?!  I have a little girl, Kiara, who will be 3 in September and she is a handful on her own!

Thank you for the welcome!

I have to say that being pregnant now is much easier than when I had the 3rd and 4th, because they were all so little and dependant on me.  Now my older girls will help me out so much more, and the kids can get their own snacks and etc themselves...so luckily I'm big and pregnant in the summer months-because the school year can be quite crazy with school work, functions, and extra-curricular activites. 

I love your daughter's name!  It was what I wanted for this little one, but my family felt it was too close to my brother-in-laws and cousin's daughter's name.  =/

 Welcome to the group! Can I ask why you like cleaning and organizing? It's not something most people like to do.

Welcome! I love the name Autumn. That was one name I had picked out for our DD (she is now almost 4). My husband liked Dawn better though because it is my middle name.

Hehehehe.  =)  I'm just weird I guess.  I don't like clutter, so I have to have things organized.  Plus, with so any kids, it helps me stay sane.  I get through things a lot quicker because I know where everything is.  I can tell you that I was NOT like that as a kid!  You could barley walk in my room. lol

I love the name Dawn!  It is my youngest daughter's middle name.  =)  Laila Dawn.  What is your daughter's middle name?

 I always feel like I'm weird too because I enjoy it so much. I'm glad there is someone else out there like me! It's funny that you mention it keeping you sane with the kids. Back when I had 1 or 2 I was not on top of things. Now that we have 4 it has changed my whole routine. You have to stay on top of everything or the whole system will start crashing down!
