|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
Our love of farming led us to open our own farm equipment business in town, 8 miles from our home, in 2016. It allows us to travel and be active in our community. We live a farm-to-table life style, by growing all of our own food, yet we also love to try new restaurants and food at fairs and festivals. Our outdoorsy personality has helped us create traditions that we look forward to all year long,-in the fall we enjoy visiting a cabin in the mountains of West Virginia to go hiking, skiing at resorts in the winter, visiting a nearby large lake and playing on the pontoon boat in the spring, and summer beach days soaking in the sun. We also love to take turns choosing new places around the country to explore. We love our new camper, that has lots of room for our growing family! Family time camping means lots of food, water activities, golf cart rides, hiking, karaoke, mini golf, family music and dancing, crafts, s'mores, bonfires, and so much more! We love history! We have many classic trucks and we love old cars and really all transportation vehicles! We collect Antique tractors called Allis-Chalmers, that we restore and we are good at renovating old houses and bringing them back to life. We have interest in a little bit of everything and are grateful to make memories together, no matter what we are doing!!
Our faith is in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! As Christians, we believe in Jesus's unconditional love and in His promises for all people! Our Church family is loving, kind-hearted people, who are supportive, outgoing, and fun! The Church is very active in the community doing Vacation Bible Schools, church camps, parades, movie nights, super bowl pool parties, and big cookouts. They have been praying for you and the baby from the beginning of our journey.
|Our Musical Interest|
Having a musician in the house means our home is full of music all of the time! Justin can hear a song once and can play it instantly on the piano. We enjoy listening and dancing to all types of music!
|About Our Home|
A long driveway off the main road makes us feel like we own our own piece of Heaven. We have open flat land that the cows let us use for backyard football games, rolling hills that are great slip-n-slide or sled riding spots, woods for horseback and bicycle trails and a gentle creek to skip rocks and watch the ducks swim. We welcome lots of baby animals and fresh strawberries in the spring. The Shenandoah river is close by for summer fishing and tubing. Our Beautiful mountains showcase their colorful leaves in the fall while the farm’s harvest of fresh veggies and fruit fill our table. Winter brings just enough snow to play in and warm fireplaces to keep us cozy.
|Our Family Traditions|
We enjoy every holiday with family! Easter is church, big breakfast, egg hunts, and a family trip to the local zoo. We host Thanksgiving every year with lots of food, backyard football games, and lots of board games. Christmas Eve is feeding the reindeer a mixture of oats and glitter in the front yard while singing Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer so Santa's reindeer will see and stop at our house. Then Tiffany's dad dresses up like Santa and runs around the house picking up the oats and telling the children its time to go back to bed and he'll come again when they're asleep. We all camp out on the floor together in front of the fireplace. Christmas day is the reading of the first Christmas, loving exchange of thoughtful gifts, and then hours of playing and enjoying delicious food. Extended families gather at our Church basement for more fun and games on Christmas evening. We host cookouts with family and friends for Memorial and Labor day parties on the farm with hay rides, bouncy houses, water games, and more.
|We live in the state of...|
Country life means some space between neighbors, but not at heart. Our neighbors might be a few acres away, but are loving, hard working, people who are excited about us adding to our family. There are many children near by for our child to play with. The small town feeling is strong in pride for the local school programs and sports teams, community festivals, and town activities and parks. The school system is one of the best in Virginia and offers many programs for any interest. We live in a safe area next to a small town, yet just a short drive to big cities like Washington D.C.
