PERHAM, Minn. - In a household filled with six people, life can be a little hectic for the Smith family. Steve and DeeDee share their home with daughters Cassandra, Courtney, Katrina and Katrina's 2-year-old daughter, Rhowan.


Katrina, 22, said it makes more sense for them to live at home.

If she didn't live with her parents and two siblings, she said she wouldn't be able to work full-time or give her daughter everything she needs.
