|More About Our Family
|Things We Enjoy|
We were both born and raised on dairy farms and both enjoy working with our hands. We love spending time outdoors, going for walks or to the park, and having BBQ's and game nights with our friends and family.
We also like buying and fixing up houses, often taking the kids with us to "help" with painting, tile work, cleanup, etc. Ikea and Home Depot are frequent shopping spots of ours.
Josh likes managing our house projects, playing basketball, reading, building things, cooking, cars, and family road trips. He also likes coming home for lunch each day with Becky and the kids.
Becky enjoys keeping up our yard and garden, home design and decor, making homemade meals for our family, and girls nights out with her friends.
We are a Christian family that strives to always put God first in our lives. As a family, we take time each day to pray, read the Bible or story Bible, and sing Bible songs together. We are active members of the church Josh grew up attending and where most of his family still worship. Our kids attend Sunday School each week with their cousins and "church" friends, where they memorize Bible verses, read Bible stories, and sing songs. Becky attends a Ladies Bible study twice each month and we host a small group Bible Study in our home monthly. We believe the Bible is the true word of God and teach our children by example how to love God and others.
We have been blessed with two amazing children through adoption, Malachi and Annika. Malachi is in Kindergarten this year and enrolled in a parent-partnership program through the local school district. He attends school one morning a week and Becky teaches him the work he is sent home with on the rest of the days. He is smart, funny, has endless energy, and enjoys learning life skills such as cooking from his mom and laying tile with his dad. Annika loves unicorns, princesses, and anything with sparkles. She is our social butterfly who will make friends with anybody and loves being our snuggle buddy. We love to see the bond growing between the kids as they get older!
Our home is warm and inviting and place where we love to be together and be ourselves. Sometimes it is an art studio, where we create and use our imaginations, sometimes a bakery or restaurant where we bake/cook together, a dance studio when we turn on our favorite songs really loud and dance around the living room, and sometimes just a quieter place where we curl up on the couch together to read books or have a movie night. Outside, we have a fenced yard where we have a swing set, trampoline, soccer goal, and a garden where we grow some vegetables and flowers. Our home is located on the bay where we have gated access to the water. We love to explore the beach looking for "baby" crabs, sea glass, special shells and rocks. It is a home where our friends, family, and neighbors are invited over for play dates, game nights, and bonfires.
We are very close to both sides of our family and see them often. With 59 nieces and nephews between the two of us, there always seems to be a birthday party or event to attend with family. Vacations, holidays, play dates, and sister trips are planned together. We love having family as our closest friends and they are all so excited and can't wait for us to welcome a child into our home.
|We live in the state of...|
We live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest in Washington State. We have warmer summers and cooler winters, snow in the mountains, and occasionally get snow where we live. The small, rural community where we live is just 15 minutes from town and is close to parks, hiking trails, and the beach.
We live in a quiet, safe, friendly neighborhood on the bay. There are several neighbors near us that have young children also and we see them often for play dates or stopping for a visit while out in the yard or going for a walk. If you need a cup of sugar, some cream for your coffee or someone to watch your kids for a bit, we all have each others back.
