We got snow here in Oklahoma! We played in the snow and Ozzie built his first real snowman. The snowflakes were so big and we snuggled in by the fireplace after playing in the snow. The dogs loved prancing in the fluff.

Family PhotosDec 11, 2020
We recently were able to get some family photos. We were so excited because this is the first time we have all had our photos taken together professionally. We can’t wait to add to the family and get more photos in the future.
HalloweenNov 04, 2020
We love Halloween! We were able to do a social distance trick-or-treating for our neighborhood kids by putting out all the candy on a table just outside our porch. We cannot wait to be able to take our children trick-or-treating one day.
HikingOct 08, 2020
We have been enjoying the cooler weather by getting outdoors for some beautiful hikes. We tried out a few new trails and enjoyed the scenery.
Summer swimming and familyAug 31, 2020
We love to spend the hot summer days with family and friends around the pool. Our niece loves our giant jellyfish float. Memories like this last a lifetime ❤️.
KayakingJun 19, 2020
With social distancing rules during this beautiful season, we have been getting some sunshine by doing a lot of kayaking. We love to load up the kayaks on top of the jeep and hit the water. We find it relaxing and it rejuvenates our spirits. We would love to take them for a farther road trip one of these days.
GardeningMay 19, 2020
We have had a small garden with our favorite veggies for a few years. We love planting seeds or small plants and watching them grow. It’s so nice to be able to run out to the garden for an ingredient for dinner. Nothing tastes better than fresh picked veggies.
TravelApr 24, 2020
We love to travel! We travel with friends and family whenever possible. We have a US map that we cut out pictures in the shape of each state we visit. Our goal is to fill the whole map with happy memories. Some of our favorite places have been Jackson Hole WY, Glacier National Park, The Grand Canyon, New Orleans, Disney World, and the Dominican Republic. We of course love the island of Dominica in the West Indies where we lived for two years.
FamilyApr 14, 2020
Ozzie and I have a giant family between the two of us. We have a huge support system and cannot imagine life without each one of them.
Bike RidesApr 09, 2020
During our free time we really enjoy going for bike rides. It’s a nice way to get outside and get a little exercise. We even have little baskets in the front of each bike for the dogs to enjoy the ride. There are many good paved trails near our home we can explore.

Social DistancingApr 05, 2020
During this scary time of the Coronavirus/COVID-19, we are doing our duty as citizens and social distancing/staying at home as much as possible. We are excited to get a start on our spring garden. Brandy loves to garden, both vegetables and flowers!
Going for a rideApr 04, 2020
When the weather is nice, Mason and Ellie love to go for a ride in the jeep. Don’t worry, they’re harnessed in with their own seatbelts.
Our PetsApr 04, 2020
We have two dogs, Mason and Ellie. Mason is an 8 year old Silky Terrier who we adopted in 2013 when we lived in New York for school. Ellie is a 5 year old Terrier mix that we adopted in 2015 in Oklahoma during residency. Mason is a momma's boy who loves to jump in the pool to cool off in the summer heat and go for walks. Ellie is a sweet girl who never met a stranger. She loves to go to the dog park to socialize with new humans. She also really enjoys hanging her head out the side of the jeep during good weather.
Our TraditionsMar 11, 2020
As a family, we go to the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving game every year. This has been a tradition for the past 8 years. We then have the traditional family get-together for dinner the day after Thanksgiving. For Christmas we have a big family party the weekend before Christmas. Brandy's entire extended family is there and we play games and exchange gifts. There's also a quick visit from Santa! During the year, we have Sunday dinners every Sunday to enjoy the company of family and friends and watch a little football. We also try to go to Disney World each year for the world cheerleading competition. This is memorable for us because this is where we got engaged. Lastly, we have a poster size map of the United States. When we travel, we take a photo in each state, then put it on the map in the shape of the state. Our goal is to fill the map with happy memories of the places we've been.
Home Sweet HomeMar 11, 2020
We have a 3-bedroom home with 2.5 baths in a neighborhood on the outskirts of a large city. We have a beautiful pool in the backyard and plenty grass for little ones or pups to play. We love that we have easy access to the city with all the attractions and restaurants, but also love not being in the middle of the big city as well. Brandy's favorite spot in the house is the kitchen where she can bake/cook and create something delicious for us to enjoy! Ozzie's favorite place is the backyard and patio where he can relax and swim. Our neighborhood is diverse with many families of all ages including couples with young children all the way up to retirees. We are close with our neighbors on each side of us and we will sometimes walk our dogs together. Our neighborhood is in a very good school district and our elementary school is ranked among the top in the state.
