Thirteen Things about LALA1…. I come from a big family....I have 3 sisters and loads of cousins and aunties and uncles and 6 nephews and 2 nieces and 1 great-niece- sadly I have no living grandparents 2. We had a couple of foster sisters and one foster brother and 2 of my cousins living with us at different points......we also had lots of strays...you know the ones you find sleeping on your couch in the mornings! because my parents were elders in the church we also had every guest speaker or family in need live at our house 3. because of all the people in our house my dad designed and built a 4 story 8 bedroom 4 full bathroom house on Nancy Green Way - close the bottom of the gondula at Grouse Mountain N.V. 4. shortly after we all moved in (and some of us even had to share rooms and he made a storage room into a bedroom)......everyone moved out!!!! my 2 cousins and 2 oldest sisters both got married in a 2 year period - in 2 years there were 4 of us living in the house.....we moved shortly after 5. when we moved to the hobby farm we got horses, my parents bought 1 and we were given 2 6. Afraya was my favorite, she was an Arabian mare, dark red, beautiful and a great personality, we bred her with our neighbors Quarter Horse and we watched the baby filly be born. I named her Morning Glory, my dad gave her to our neighbors...........I was angry at that....I didn't know it was because my dad's business was going under and they couldn't afford the horses anymore 7. J and I want to have a hobby farm now too, the whole shabang!! horses, chickens, a milking cow, some pot bellied pigs!!! 8. J has a huge family!!! he has 1 older half brother that he just found out about, he has 2 full younger sisters, he has 1 younger step brother, 1 younger step sister, 1 younger half brother, 3 younger half sisters and countless nephews and nieces 9. J and I always wanted a big family, we do! we have 6 babies in heaven and 4 daughters 10. we have talked about adopting some day 11. I forget that my 2 oldest sisters are half sisters, my dad adopted them when he married my mom, he didn't need to have more kids, he was happy with them, my mom wanted more kids and wasn't feeling done when she had me even. 12. my dad's dad died when my dad was 2 years old, his mom remarried when he was 13, it took him 7 years before he could call Grandpa, dad, my daughter Emily is named after my Grandpa, Emile.....he was my favorite grandparent....I loved him so much and miss him still
13. for 3 generations on my side a father has adopted his wife's children........
I have a great family!!
