This is something that I have been meaning to do for a while now! Since that school is officially out for the summer, the family activities of our household are about to kick into high gear (plus I will start sharing about them more) so I figured it is time I formally introduce my family to you!.

If you have followed me here for any amount of time, you know that I have 4 children: 2 girls and 2 boys. I am also married to a pretty awesome guy! 🙂  They are my heart and joy, and the driving force behind everything that I do.

So…without further ado, allow me to introduce to you:  My Fam! 🙂

Starting with the kiddos first:

.Meet The Family #MELISASource

Rebel (formally ‘Hipster’, but I changed it-HA!) is my firstborn. She is entering into her second year of college. Having her at a young age, she was the one who taught me the meaning of the phrase, “it’s me against the world.” Rebel is the fearless one: never afraid to take on new experiences and challenges, and she always takes a stand for what she wants. She’s a true ‘Rock-n-Roll Baby’ that LOVES her music (and her headphones), her skateboard, and her friends.

Jedi – the one I affectionately call “Mommy’s Mirror”—just completed his sophomore year of high school. His goal is to be a teacher, and it is oftentimes demonstrated in his conversations both inside and outside the house (he will debate with you on a subject until the cows come home! Lol) He is a Boy Scout, a hardcore sports fan, and he is also into music: he sings in several choirs and is a member of marching band.

Lady T is the princess of the house! She’s entering 6th grade in the fall, but you would not be able to tell that by her height (she’s actually taller than me)! More of a ‘Merida’ or ‘Mulan’ princess than a ‘Cinderella,’ being around her brothers has taught her a lot about being protective of her family and friends. She loves dancing, reading, and being out in nature.  She also enjoys action flicks (like her mom. 🙂 ).

 Manny is……well…..I’ll just show you below:

He is definitely the energy of the house! He’s only 6 years old, but he already carries plenty of charisma, spunk, and activity to go around! He loves his cars, trains, planes—anything that is considered a mode of transportation! And if you ever come across us in the store, you will most likely see him doing this:

Of course, there’s me—“Momma Bear” as my family calls me! 🙂

And there’s my Hubby whom I call “Hero.” You’ll (sorta) see him around here from time to time as well. 🙂

So there you have it! I love my family so much, and I am so excited to start sharing more of our life with you! Now, don’t get me wrong, we are far from perfect. In fact, on an average day, we are mostly like this:

.

 But that does not stop us from loving each other all the more! 🙂
