Welcome to Melandboys
I am so glad you are here!
My name is Melanie and as you can see, I am happily surrounded by boys.
I married my best friend and childhood sweetheart Brad.
Together we are the parents of 5 darling and sometimes crazy boys.
I love being a Wife and Mother and put my heart and soul into creating a happy and nurturing home for my family.
This is the place where I celebrate the small and simple things in life, share happy stuff, keep a record of our 'happenings' and stay inspired. One of the main reasons I blog is to keep myself focused on the good in life, so even though I may not write about it much, please don't think for a minutes that we don't have bad days and my house isn't a wreck at times:)
I also love how blogs connect us and create friendships that otherwise would have been impossible. I really would love to hear from you in the comments section, or email me at
And my oldest son Connor, has graduated from High School and is currently serving a 2 year mission for our church before he goes to College.
He is one of those cute boys you see in white shirt and ties with little black name tags throughout the world:)
