Wilhelmsen and Muirhead + Eight! :)

Life has been crazy for us lately (I know I ALWAYS say that, but it's TRUE!!). I was trying to wait to write this post until I had a picture to go with it, but it might be awhile so I am just going to write...

Back in September, after Ike, we were living in Navasota with my Aunt and Uncle, waiting to close on the houses we were selling and buying. As it turned out the commute from Navasota to Spring with three little ones was about to kill me, so our very precious friends the Wilhelmsen's invited us to stay with them for about a week while we were waiting to move into our new house. We thought that would be great, but were still a bit hesitant because we have three kids and they have five. That would be eight kids and four adults under one roof...imagine the chaos getting ready in the morning or at dinner time and bath time, but we were sleep deprived and we took them up on their was only for a week, right?? Well things didn't exactly work out like we planned, after we closed on our house, we found out that we could not move in, and that work would need to be done first, so where are we now? We are still with the Wilhelmsen's. We are a family of twelve living under one roof. Life is certainly busy, but surprisingly ordered. Our kids fight like brother (mostly brother because their five are all boys) and sister. They love each other too, and to see them when they are being nice makes my heart melt. I wish I had a picture of them all to post, but I don't, they don't stay still long enough for me to capture the photo...when I have one I'll post it! :)

I hope you all are doing well!!

Love you!

Hi Abby! I found your blog. Sorry to hear about the living situation...We, too, are still out of our house and making the best of what can be a stressful time. So I understand the sense of displacement. I will forever be grateful for the unending (so far!) hospitality of our loved ones. Hope y'all are doing as well as possible.
