Welcome to the Family

Hello World 👋

I’d like to introduce you to our crazy little bunch!  We call ourselves the Billett Bunch.

My name is Merissa, most of my family and friends refer to me as ‘Mer’, which I do not mind as the coolest Grey’s Anatomy doctor is called ‘Mer’ for short.  While I’m no doctor, my background is in Communications and Marketing.  I freelance and work for a major telecommunications company.  My dream is to completely transition to working from home and freelancing, in order to be a more involved Mom as the kids grow.  I’m originally from Buffalo, New York but moved to the Nashville area in 2009.

I met my husband Tim in 2011, through mutual friends and we remained friends quite a bit until we decided to date exclusively.  He was a Sergeant in the U.S. Army, deployed three times and is a Purple Heart Recipient.  He was honorably discharged in 2015, after 9 years and now works for the same telecommunications company as a technician.  He enjoys hunting, being outdoors, playing too much Xbox and just being a really awesome Dad!

We had our first son, Andrew in 2013, ever since then he’s been keeping us on our toes.  He is now in Preschool and will be attending Kindergarten in the fall.  He plays soccer about 3 times a week and loves it. Drew Man loves space, rockets, paw patrol and anything loud and obnoxious.   He is a ball of energy and all boy, but he loves his Mommy and family so much.  He idolizes his big brother, Micah.

At around 6 months old, Andrew was lucky enough to have his two half siblings move into our home full-time.  The circumstances which caused this were not ideal, however, we have all adjusted and blossomed pretty gracefully.  Kailey just turned 12, and Micah will be 11 years old shortly.  We don’t use the words step, half and anything really that separates us all from one another.

Kailey is your normal 12-year-old, she is involved in competitive cheerleading, plays flute in her school’s band and is really artsy and crafty.  She just received her first “real” easel for Christmas from her grandparents and is in love.  She can be found tumbling throughout the house, jumping on the trampoline and probably with her friends running right behind.

Micah is just about 11 years old, he loves football and is the best big brother I could ever imagine.  He is a lover, and will always come up for a hug or to cuddle. He is a sweetheart.  Micah is usually running around throwing a football, or playing on his iPad and Xbox. He has a heart of gold, and some lovely lady will be blessed with his ‘Old Soul’ some day.

Our lives have blended together in ways we never would’ve imagined but in the end we are one crazy-not-so-little Billett Bunch!  We can’t wait to share our lives with you all!

Here’s to many more Adventures!!!

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
