|More About Our Family
We enjoy traveling and are excited to take family vacations with a little one. We look forward to showing our child all the beauty and excitement this country has to offer.
We were both raised in solid Christian homes. Our faith is very important to us. Our child will be raised knowing our love and God’s love. We are very fortunate to live within a mile of our country church, which means our church families are also our neighbors.
|Music that makes us move|
Thank goodness for Alexa! There’s nothing better than saying what song you want and then having it play! Whether we are outside working in the yard, inside cooking, or just playing games, we always have music playing! We love all kinds of music, rock, country, pop… We’ve even been known to play a little techno while having a dance party with our little nieces. We may not be the best dancers but we always have fun!
|Some of our family traditions|
We have many family traditions, including a candle light Christmas Eve service, fireworks on the Fourth-of-July, sharing what we’re thankful for on Thanksgiving and ringing in the New Year together. We also have a huge 3-day family reunion every year, people come from all over to enjoy the great food and live music.
|More on our loved ones|
Troy has one sister Sonya (Bill) and Gayl has one brother Paul (Jen). We have 3 nieces, Maddie, Avery, and Quinn and 1 nephew Jack. Gayl’s mom has 13 brothers and sisters and Gayl has over 40 first cousins. We even live within a mile of several family members.
|We live in the state of...|
Indiana. It’s called the “Heartland of America” for a good reason: the people. They are hardworking, honest, and kind. We both have lived in several different states but made our way back to Indiana, where we found each other.
