Meet My Family

I come from a great family. I'd like you to meet them...

My dad is the best dad ever. He loves his family and wants us all to be happy.

Dad shares a business with my Uncle Garry called Hatchett Automotive. Although he would much rather be at home, he goes to work every day without complaint.

He is really funny. Whenever my friends first meet him, they think he's so serious. This is very wrong. Dad loves making sound effects, silly faces, and telling funny stories. He is constantly quoting old cartoons and making us laugh.

Dad is very calm and patient. With a wife and five children, the stress level can get very high. But he is always calm and doesn't overeact.


She received the calling of releif society president. Wedding, funeral, loss of job, anything, and she's there. It is stressful to her but she enjoys spending time with the women in our ward.

My mom is super smart. She's good at everything academic! Her IQ is probably a bajillion.

She is a very hard worker. She's once had five jobs! She is a great mother and always keeps the house clean and orderly. She is the most organized person I know.

She loves to read. My mother will literally read anything with words. She reads several novels at a time. She reads instruction manuels, textbooks, magazines, everything!


Steven is my oldest brother. His birthday is June 7, 1987.

Steve loves cars. If he could get a new car every day, he would.

Steve's girlfriend's name is Angie. Angie a a great person and helps Steve with everything.

He moved out of the house when I was eight, and hardly ever visits. Unfortunately I don't know much about him.


Janell is my oldest sister. She and Steven are twins, so her birthday is also June 7, 1987.

Janell is fun. She often takes me for sister/sister dates where we go random places and do random stuff. Our secret handshake is very....... random.

She loves animals. Janell has an Arabian show horse and a very big dog. Her horse's name is Rockin' to Fame. "Fame" for short. Janell's dog is half german shepard, one fourth boxer, and one fourth labrador retriever. Her name is Laika. Her animals are a big part of her life.

She is very artistic and creative. We have some of her art hanging in our house. She has most likely owned 50,000 sketchbooks. She loves art and took lots of art classes in highschool. She dreams of being an animator.


Kayla is my other older sister. Her birthday is June 13, 1989.

Kayla is very comforting. It's like she has some magical ability to make me happy. She is hilarious. She always makes me laugh with her dramatic stories.

She is an amazing singer. You wouldn't know unless you've lived with her. She sings all around the house, but not in front of people. When the shower turns on, you know you are about to hear a concert.

Kayla is gorgeous. I am especially jealous of her "Disney Princess eyes."

She loves writing. She could be a famous author someday.

Making cakes is a common family home evening activity at her house. She writes about her cake adventures and other humerous things on her blog at

Paul is my awesome brother-in-law. He is married to Kayla. His birthday is in February 6, 1985.

He loves Kayla. It's so cute when he leaves little notes for her all around her apartment.

Paul went on a spanish-speaking mission in Washington. Considering no one else in my family speaks a word of spanish, it's awesome to now have someone to help me with my homework.

My whole family loves Paul. He is a really good person and a great addition to our family.

Braden is my youngest sibling. His birthday is July 3, 1999.

Braden is very helpful. He often goes over to the house of the older people in our neighborhood and works for them.

He dominates us in games. One of his favorite games is UNO. He's been playing that game since he was three years old.

He is good in school. He always has straight A's.

He is also very determined. Once he starts something, he's most likely going to finish.


  1. Braden is just a few months older as my sister

  2. First of all, you are so not messed up in the picture. Your whole family looks wonderful. It is a beautiful family picture. I love how you know so many details of your family memebers. That shows how much you love them. You are part of an amzing family, Tessa. You are truly blessed!

  3. First of all, you are so cute. I thought the things you said about each of us was very sweet and flattering. Paul was honored to have made it in with the family and wants to say, "Thanks!" He also wanted you to know his birthday is February 6, 1985, (in case you want to send him an expensive gift).

    Second of all, you forgot to mention yourself in there, girly. You forgot to write:

    Then there is me, the youngest of the Hatchett women. Although I'm not as tall as my sisters yet, that day is coming soon.

    I love to read much like my mom. I loved books before I could even walk. I use to beg everyone to read to me when I was little. When my family got tired of it I had to learn how to read myself. But I've been doing it ever since.

    I, too, have a shy singing talent that only manifests itself in the shower and the corners of my room. Choir has helped me break out of my shell just a little, and after grueling auditions I even made Treble Trios!

    I'm a talented artist with a lot of potential. Drawing, painting, writing, and piano playing are just a few of the arts that I've dabbled in.

    Did I mention I have amazingly think hair? That should probably be in the Guinness Book of World Records.

  4. This was so fun to read about your family. I forget you have two older siblings- twins to say the least! Thanks for sharing all of this with us. You also write wonderfully!
