My siblings and I all look alike. I can really only see the resemblance through pictures, but man, when we’re out and about, we always get comments about how we look the same, hahaha!
So, let’s jump right into learning about who everyone is, as well as a little bit about our wonderful parents. ❤

About My Family
I am the oldest child, which is honestly pretty cool! I can be (and usually am!) the good influence, the leader, the future chauffeur of all their first dates … HAHAHA! Nah, I’m going to be an awesome big sis. If I ever do any chauffeuring (and I probably will), I’m gonna be a great one and not embarrassing at all. I think.
So anyway, I am seventeen and the mature (hehe) teenager around here. I love the arts, being creative, spending time with my family, competing in games, baking new treats, and having quiet time with the Lord.
Joshua is thirteen – that’s four years younger than me. When we were little, we were inseparable, but personality differences have drawn us apart in more recent years. He has been in my prayers often, and I am so thankful that we’re beginning to be closer again. ❤ He loves being outside, riding skateboards and bikes and scooters, gaming on a variety of devices (PC, tablet, Wii), experimenting with science, and joking around with all of us. (Watch out for his pranks!)
That picture is from when Joshua and I were about the same age that Samuel and Elizabeth are now!
Samuel is five; I was eleven and Joshua was seven when he was born! The age difference is wild, but I absolutely love it. Because I’m a great bit older, I have to really search to find something that interests both of us, but when I do, I love getting to play games and do activities with him. He loves being silly, playing games, watching kid movies and TV shows, and spending time with us – especially baby Elizabeth!
That brings me to the last kid around here, and she’s the most adorable little munchkin you shall ever meet, I dare say. Elizabeth is ten months old, and I couldn’t ask for a sweeter sister. I love being with her and taking care of her, and it brings me joy to know that she is nearly as content with me as she is with our mom. ❤
I took that photo yesterday morning after Elizabeth had just gotten up, and Samuel was playing Minecraft while sitting next to her. Isn’t she sweet?!
Now, on to my mom. Many of you have heard of her blog, Living Lighter in Atlanta, but if you have never visited it, it would bless me if you did! She is not only my mother, but also my best friend – not to mention my teacher! Even if we weren’t related, I’d still want to be her friend. 🙂 I can’t express to all of you how thankful I am for her! She is always so kind and loving to me, even though she’s constantly juggling taking care of all of us and keeping a clean house. I admire her greatly 🙂 ❤
My dad, who I for some reason don’t write about very much on here, is the best dad I could ever ask or pray for. He loves all of us to pieces, has a great sense of humor, is hardworking, loves a good competitive game, and is very interested in classic cars and how vehicles work. I love him so much. ❤
So, that’s it for us! If you have any more questions about any of us, make sure to leave them in the comments below!
