A house full of boys.....

Nathan grew up in a family of 1 girl and 6 boys. He is the oldest of the 6 boys. I am always amazed that his sister was able to survive her childhood & even with fond memories ;)
When Nate & I began dating I was terrified of going to his home. Then as I was the first daughter-in-law I realized very quickly that I didn't have 5 brothers-in-law but 5 new brothers. The relationship that exists between Nate & his brothers is so unique. When they are all together it can be kind of scary because they do feed off of each other but in a very fun & loving way.
As we sat in Sacrament meeting yesterday and RaShawn & her beautiful family sat in front of us I couldn't help but think of how her boys are together & the joy she must feel from a house full of boys......

Yes, some days there is a lot of joy. It's really fun when they are all hanging out and playing with each other.

There is nothing better than seeing your boys snuggling with each other, or having kind words to say to one another.

Nate is so cute in his little brown vest!

I always imagined it being more like fight club than a house full of joy? I just had a couple of brothers, but, the testosterone was a force to be reckoned with. I am glad that their mother was blessed with joy, otherwise I am sure she would be bald.
