BSM - We Are Family

Its official. My parents have moved in. The construction on the addition is just about done, there's maybe 2 weeks left to finish up a few things.

Ella is ecstatic. The thought of my parents being here makes Ella so happy. Since it was a beautiful and warm weekend, we spent alot of time together.....doors open between the houses and everything. The only thing we need to work on now is that Ella thinks my Mom is going to save her every time I discipline her. I am having a hard enough time trying to get Ella to drop her attitude and sass towards me. Thankfully, my Mom understands the games Ella is trying to play. My 4 year old has alot to learn....

Its the beginning of a new era around here and I am so thankful.

Ella and my parents

  1. You are so lucky. I would give anything for my parents to move in with us.

    What a lovely shot of the three of them! Best of luck with the discipline.

  2. Oh Joanna, that's wonderful! I'm so happy for you. I'm enjoying having grandparents around right now, too. ;o) And, thanks for reassuring me that I'm not the only one dealing with a sassy little princess!

  3. Ooo - I'm also happy to hear that little Mr. Attitude isn't the only one! How wonderful to have grandparents SO close. Harrison's are far away.

  4. So wonderful! I have to say again that I'm a little jealous - I wish my parents were movin' in with me!! So glad this is something that works well for all of you! I'm sure you are glad to have all of that work done!

  5. Wow, I can't believe the day is already here. It seems like I just saw you at Home Goods when you said construction was about to start. What a fun transition! Lucky grandparents to watch Ella grow up right before them. :)
    Breathtaking pics as usual. Amazing.

  6. I can't believe it's almost finished -- that was super fast!

    It looks like everyone is having a good time so far -- what a lucky family you all are!

  7. Can't wait to see the final product. It's so great to have family around. I love this photo too.
