So as many of you know, I have four younger sisters (they aren't little anymore). Each one is very different and special in their very own way. As sisters, we have cried together, laughed together, laughed so hard until we cried, cried and fought over boys, beat up get the picture.

As the years have gone on and my sisters have grown into beautiful women, I have grown to love them even more...and I love their children more than I ever thought was possible. But what do you do when several of your sisters aren't getting along and they want you to choose a side? What do you do when the whole family can't even be in the same room together because of the anger and animosity that are primarily a result of pride that someone can't let go.

I constantly remind them that no matter what matter how angry we get with each other...we will be together forever so "Suck it up and Shut it up" has become my latest catch phrase...but the stubborn one just won't listen. Sometimes I wish we could all go back to the days where our biggest problems were boys and clothes...

It's been a while...

So, I'm not going to lie...I remember EXACTLY why I stopped blogging in the first place...these gosh darn templates drive me CRAZY! I was trying to post a picture of the flowers that my sweet husband got for me on Mother's Day; but the picture takes up the whole page and I can't figure out how to make the picture smaller!

Life has been good to us. I am constantly reminded how very blessed and fortunate we are. About two months ago, we moved from North Richland Hills to Fort Worth (35N and Basswood). We found a great apartment (cheaper than where we were) and we are in a fantastic ward.

Caleb is finishing second grade and his second season of soccer. Cliff is finishing his final college semester and begins a paid internship in June. I am still working and just celebrated my 6 year anniversary at the company I work is moving along.

Anyways, I will try to be better about blogging. It seems that I make time to read everyone else's blog; but never take time to share.
