Thanks for welcoming all of us to the Frugal Family Tree!

A few weeks Liz introduced me (Sam) and our Mom (Nana) to everyone. We have really been jumping up and down over being involved in the Frugal Family Tree, after all as a family we love to do everything together! There is a special relationship between a Mother and her Daughter(s) and we are happy to share that here, with you. Thanks for the warm welcome :)

Like Liz said, I am a new SAHM with 2 little boys. You may remember my post about leaving the work force? Well I am now 3 months out and loving every minute of it (well that is a lie somedays are just rough) but we make it to then next. JJ is 4 years old and full of personality. You will see me telling a lot of stories about him or what he says because boy oh boy does he crack me up! Baby L is 9 months old now and starting to get quite a fiesty personality, I think that is pretty common in the second child. He wants to do everything that JJ does and just as well, it is a daily battle I tell you. Baby L can stand his own though, we are sure that one day he will be beating up his big brother. :)

Liz and I are about 2 years apart, I am the big sister and it showed growing up. I was bossy and mean and if there was only one of something left, it was mine. I am not proud of that but it was just the way it was. Little sisters always get the raw end of the deal right? Liz has a great memory and remembers way more about our childhood then I do so I can just imagine the stories she has! As time goes on we will share those memories and stories, good and bad.

Well now that we are older and are mothers, we get along great and I think that Liz has forgiven me for most of it (I hope). We are learning together what it is like to have to worry constantly about another human being, that life is hard but if you have a sister or a best friend to talk to and share things with it is a whole lot easier. Liz and are a lot alike in our parenting skills but our personalities couldn't be any more different. I am more of a "shoot straight from the hip" kind of gal and she is more reserved. I tend to talk a lot and Liz is a great listener. She is sweet and I can be sour or the reverse if the situation calls for it :) We can be pretty tough cookies when we have to be! When it comes to socializing we are also pretty alike. We both love talking and getting to know new people! We grew up in such a large family that we always had someone to talk to or someone to play with. We also moved around a lot so making new friends was also a must.

We have a great Mother that only wanted and wants the best for us, she was and is the best role model and Mother that a gal could ask for. Our boys call her Nana and she is the best! She has always promoted reading to all of her children (there are 5 of us you know) and it is carrying on to her grandsons. She is very proud of that and we love her for it :)

The 3 of us together are a great team. We enjoy eachothers company, we laugh, we talk and we really are enjoying this experience that Blogging has offered us. What a way to grow and learn about eachother, we are very lucky. Thanks for reading and we look forward to growing relationships with all of you!!
