|More About Our Family
Family is very important to the both of us and we have many special family traditions in our lives. During the Spring, you can find us decorating eggs for Easter. For Halloween, our family is trying to carve masterpieces into the side of pumpkins to show off to the local neighbor kids. Many of our favorite family traditions are found during Christmas season. We do so much during this season with our extended families. Christmas is a huge deal for both of our families and we spend evenings wrapping gifts, shopping, decorating, eating, singing, and creating mountains of memories. It all starts with putting up the Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving; we all get together and decorate the trees all while watching Christmas movies. Then there is all of the Holiday baking where we make a different Christmas treat each week. Every Christmas Eve we attend midnight mass and open one of our gifts, usually Christmas pajamas. The Holidays are truly special times in our family and we are excited to share these traditions and pass them down to our future children.
We have quite a variety of different hobbies between the two of us. We both absolutely love being outdoors and look forward to the different seasons and the variety of experiences each season has to offer. In the summer, we enjoy going to the Farmer's Market. One day, Sarah would love to have her own booth and take our entire family to the Farmer’s Market to sell flowers that they picked the night before from our garden. We love the different booths and enjoy supporting our local shops and farms. Austin loves canoeing, jet skiing, and doing just about anything on the water. We both love the lake and spend a great deal of time during the summer at our family’s lake cottage. Sarah loves finding old furniture and adding a coat of paint to transform it into a gem that tells a story. We both love gardening and trying our hand at new vegetables and are hoping to have a small farm of our own someday. We are looking forward to taking our kids one day and getting chickens and maybe a goat to add to our farm. We love to experience all aspects of life and are up for trying almost anything.
Currently, we have two Bernese Mountain dogs and two playful cats. With this many animals, there is never a dull moment around the house. Our dogs are extremely loving and are always excited to meet new people.
|How did we meet?|
We were both in the high school marching band and had a few classes together in our first year of high school.
