Sorry, no pics yet

So the real reason I wanted to start a blog was so everyone could see updated pics of my family, butI packed up the card reader to my camera:( Sorry everyone! I will try to find it because I think the last pictures I posted of Joseph were when he was first born, and he's ALOT cuter now. And Nevaeh is a doll! Her hair is so long now! Too bad she doesn't have a mom who does it very often. So I will try and get some new pics up asap. And thanks everyone for checking out my blog! Its so fun to see people actually care! I love you all!

Moving in with the inlaws

So...Aaron and I qualified for this awesome program that helps low income families get really nice housing. We, along with 6 other families will be helping build each others homes. I am really excited, but it meant that for however long it takes to build we will be living with Aaron's parents.
Now, for all of you who dont know Aaron's parents you might think, "That's too bad, but alot of people move in with their parents for things like this, right?" Sure, people do, but let me explain a little bit our situation just a little. First, I have a 4 month old and a 2 and a half year old, and the house is not only NOT kid friendly, it is actually the exact opposite. I can't go anywhere without watching my daughter for fear of her falling down stairs, eating chemicals, coloring on the couches, throwing things down the stairs, etc, etc, etc. Its only been four days and I don't know if I can make it the rest of the 7-10 months. So, I am trying to be as optomistic as I can, but am having difficulties.
We have a very little room that we have turned into our bedroom/kitchen/living room/nursury. Yes, our fridge and pantry are in with us, and thanks to Aaron he rigged our computer to also be a tv! So it is kinda nice to finally have the internet, and now that I have created a blog you can all follow along with my dramas at the Merrill house, and the progress with our house. It will be an adventure! Thanks for checking out my blog, and stay tuned.
