No longer the Queen of the house of boys!

It's true...I am no longer the Queen of the house of boys! We have...gasp...a teenage girl living in our home now! My world has been turned upside down, and I like it! I am busier than before, my house if messier, more laundry...but I like it! I get to do things like this:
And this:
(both of which I will blog about in more detail and better photos soon!)

My husbands sister has moved in with us for at least the next year. I will spare details to protect her privacy, but will tell you this: Our decision to take her in was based on our ability to provide her an opportunity for change in a vital time in her life where poor decisions can make or break a person.

My sister-in-law, Bri, is a twin. Bri is on the left in red, and Carissa is on the left.
We love them both very much, and we wish we were able to have them both come stay with us, but circumstances only allowed for Bri to make the move.
So, you see, even though I am not an official "mom" to Bri...I am now "mothering" a 15 yr old girl, 12 yr old boy, and 21 month old boy.

  1. Oh my, you are a saint! Bri is truly lucky to have someone who cares so much and is willing to go so far out for her. You are a serious blessing to her!

    And with that, now you get to do all the fun girlie stuff!!!! I smell pedicures coming on :)
