Longhorns

May 07, 2020

We have several hobbies and a recent one is raising registered longhorns.  Since we live in the country and love animals why not?? They are beautiful and fun to watch.  We have enjoyed driving around the land watching them and getting to take pictures.  When they see us coming they come right up to the truck as they sometimes get treats so they always greet us hoping we have them.  We do have to be careful because they don’t realize how big their horns really are and they are very social.  This is a cool pictures of the ladies that we visited the other day.

Quarantine Life.....

Apr 20, 2020

Life has been so crazy lately and I know everyone’s life has changed with what’s going on in the world. We have all been so used to living life by having a routine; some go to work, take kids to school, go to sporting events, go shop, go out to eat, etc.…. with life change comes new routines.  We have been able to spend more time with family and have created new routines.  We are lucky enough to have a semi normal routine as we are still working but every day when the weather is nice we take multiple walks down to the mailbox with Everest, we play games outside, work on projects or are doing school work.  It is a nice break to have life slow down a bit. Luckily living in the country, we are able to be outside more and are not cooped up in the house.  We are definitely trying to focus on the positives during this time.
 
We have had to celebrate Matt's birthday and Easter but have tried to make is a fun as it can be.  Matt is always so positive so this year he says, do you even get older when your birthday happens during quarantine??  NOPE! I guess he decided to not age this year.

We hope you are doing well during this time!

Little Miss Everest!

Apr 18, 2020

I wanted to introduce you to one of our favorite little pups!! This is Everest (yes, we named her after Paw Patrol) and boy is she a cutie! However, she can be a little toot. She loves to get out and explore and really loves her toys especially her little squeaky balls like in the picture.  She also loves to be held and to snuggle. She has been a little lost without her pal Tuffy as we lost him to due to age recently.
 
Hope you enjoy animals because we have many and love them! Look out for more posts about them and our life!

Thank You!

Now that we have shared about our lives, what we enjoy and our family, we want to close with a few promises to you! If you choose to pursue an adoption plan with us, we promise to respect you and whatever level of openness that you wish to have with your child. We promise to love your child unconditionally! We promise to provide a safe, stable and happy home for them and to give them a life filled with every opportunity possible! We know this is a very difficult decision for you, and no matter what you choose, we see you as a mom who just wants to do what is best for her child. We will support you in your decision no matter what!

Our Pets

Feb 20, 2020

We have 2 Shih Tzu's, Tuffy and Everest. They are inside dogs. We also have a Great Pyrenese, Linus, who is an outside dog. He loves to escape and sometimes we will have to go search for him, but he is never far. There is a cat that we named Socks. Socks was here before we moved in and he decided to stick around! We have many chickens, 3 horses, 1 cow, and 2 longhorns. Our family has many more wild horses, cows, longhorns, llamas, emu, donkey, goat, and bison on their farm.

Our Home

Feb 20, 2020

We live in the country on almost 20 acres of land. We have a lot of different kinds of animals. Everyone around us lives on acreage, so our neighbors aren't as close as most people would have as neighbors. Our family also owns a 3,000 acre ranch that we raise many different animals on. We live in a small town with a small school district. Our school district is one of the best around. So much so that people try to transfer in.

Our Families And Traditions

Feb 20, 2020

Marcie- I am really to close to my mom. I literally talk to her every day! She comes to visit a lot and will stay a couple weeks at a time. We also try to go visit her as much as we can. She lives about 5 hours away. I have a brother that lives close to my mom, so when we are in town, we visit with them as well. They have 2 daughters, one of which they adopted from China. Unfortunately, my father passed away a couple months before my wedding. I miss him, but we still celebrate him every chance we get! We also teach Brayden about him and share all the amazing memories we have. Matt- My mother and dad live in the same town as we do and we see them daily. They are very active in all of our lives. They love to travel, either by plane or in their new RV. I have 2 older brothers, Jeff, my oldest brother, lives in San Francisco. My middle brother Craig lives in San Antonio with his wife, Kristen, and their 2 children. We love to spend the big holidays with family. Each year we try to alternate whose family we are with. For Christmas, Marcie's mom has a tradition of giving everyone giant stockings and stuffing them full of little gifts. We also have an Elf, Peppermint, that comes to visit the family. On Christmas Eve, we open one present and then leave out our cookies for Santa. Since my birthday is on July 4th, we are intentional about going to see fireworks and having a get-together with friends and family. We also help host a halloween party with our friends. Each year we pick a theme, decorate, have games and prizes, and try to get our costumes to match the theme. It's a fun time and we hope to continue the tradition as long as the children let us.
