Meet My Family


For those of you who don’t know I am the 4th oldest of 11 children.  I thought it would be nice to introduce you to my family, especially since I mention a lot of them in my blog posts. 



Doug and Sharon

My dad and mom are the parents of 11 and grandparents of 4. They have been married for almost 27 years.  My dad lost his job last June and has been working side by side with my mom flipping houses for a living! He also enjoys helping my mom home school all of my younger brothers and sister.  If there is one person that I look up to the most in all my life, it would have to be my mom.  She has taught me everything I know in life. When I grow up I want to be just like her.



Bonnie and Scott have been married now for almost 7 years and have 3 beautiful children.  She loves staying home with her kids and working out of her house as an Independent Shaklee Distributor. She has and will always be my best friend. I couldn’t ask for a better older sister. I love you Bonnie. See why I love her so much at House of Grace




Husband to Ann Marie and father of two wonderful kids, Doug works hard at work everyday and after work he becomes “Mr. Handy Man”.  He is such a big help around their cute little house trying to make their first house a beautiful home. Check it out at White House Black Shutters. 




He is  22 years old and graduated from college this year with a math major.  He has played baseball pretty much his whole life and is going to continue with his dream in becoming a math teacher as well as a baseball coach.






 Elisabeth - Me

I am 21 years old I just got a job at a local salon, I am continuing to nanny and while working as a Independent Shaklee Distributor.  My 3 jobs keeps me on the run working hard and on top of things.  I wouldn’t trade what I have for anything. I thank God for all he has given me.





 He is six-teen and all excited about getting his license this year and being able to drive on his own.  He is a junior in high school and enjoys hanging out with his friends and playing baseball.



 Michael 2


Nearly 15 and growing up so fast. He  is a sophomore in high school  and getting his permit this fall. Besides hanging out with his friends he loves being outside in the sun playing any and every backyard sport he can. Without a doubt summer is his favorite time of the year. But then again who doesn’t like summer?






Thirteen going on thirty, and that is the understatement of the year. I don’t think you can ever find a more mature and bright thirteen year old girl than Hannah.  She is the sweetest person that you will ever meet. She is always there for me when I need her and is happy to help with everything.





I don’t even know where to begin with Rachelle.  She is the biggest girly girl that you will ever come across.  She love painting her nails, trying on my make up, taking about 30 minutes a day to pick out her clothes,okay I might be pushing it a little there. ;)  Although I love her to death. I know that she looks up to me in everything that I do. She is my mini me.  She is 10 years and ten days younger than me. She will be 11 in just  few weeks.





 At 8 William made the 9 / 10 year old baseball all-star team, he pitched and is a top hitter.  William, Thomas and Johnathan are inseparable they are like the 3 musketeers', one without the others is just lost. I enjoy watching them play together in their shared bedroom.    





I would have to say that Thomas is a follower. He loves to get attention so when someone else does something that gets attention he wants to do it too.  I love everything about him. When he gets that smile on his face it makes me think about the beauty of being a child again, it is so pure and innocent. 






 Last but not least, is my God son Johnathan. He is 3 years old and is not shy at all. He knows how to get what he wants. He even has a legit puppy dog face. I must say I am a sucker for it every time even though I know that he is doing it just to get what he wants. He is one of the most intelligent kids I know.  When he sees his big brothers doing school he wants to do just what they are doing and he does. I know that he is going to go far in life.



I love my family with all my heart and I would give anything to have a family just like this when I grow up.  

Remember FAMILIES are just:
