**Oh my! This page is a bit outdated! I will try to get it updated soon!**
I thought I would introduce you to the members of the family – that way when I mention someone, you won’t have to say, “Now, which one is that, again?” You can just jump over to this page and refresh your memory. So, here goes:
Jeff – my sweet dh. He is a meteorologist by degree, an environmental consultant by profession. He loves baseball, especially Chicago Cubs baseball, sports card collecting, severe storms (especially photographing them, although I think he would really rather chase them, than wait for them to come to him!), his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, his family, serving at our church, evangelism, mexican food, and seafood (which he only gets when he goes out with his brother) – of course, not in that order!
Robert (26) – Our firstborn and first to fly out of the nest. He is a master at web design and computer tech support, currently working tech support for a major computer & video game development company. He loves computers, video games, Batman, and spending time with friends.
Ryan (23) – Our secondborn son – he is our peace amidst the storm! He can handle any situation with patience, kindness, wisdom and gentleness. He is an inspiration to me in many ways. He is a wonderful leader and encourager of people. He loves reading, writing, movies, and helping others. Ryan is working as an assistant manager for Chick-Fil-a while he attends college. He has finished up at the local community college, and will be completing his undergraduate degree through Moody College, with a degree in Biblical Studies. Ryan is out of the house now, living in a house with his brother, Matt, and 2 other friends.
Matthew (21) – Matthew has always been our curious child – in that he is always wondering how things work, what will happen if. . ., and why something does what it does. He loves to take apart anything in his quest to answer these questions! He is a strong, persistent young man, who has a sensitive heart for God. He loves computers (and is our resident technical support guy), video games, cats, and Starbucks. He is working as an assistant manager at Chick-Fil-A while also working on his college degree in Criminal Justice.
Mattie (as we call him) is out of the house now, living in a house with his brother, Ryan, and 2 other friends.
Laura (18) – Our first girl, she is loving, caring and helpful with the other children. She has a tender heart for animals, especially dogs, and wants to have her own animal rescue as soon as she can finance it. She designs beautiful banners for websites (including mine!), loves writing, drawing, and reading.
Tommy (15) – He has my grandfather’s big blue eyes and easy going nature. He is very smart and his favorite school subject is Math. He loves to laugh and always brightens up my day. Tommy is our ice skater – spending much time each week on the ice, being coached, preparing for competitions, and learning new techniques. In his free time, he loves watching movies, listening to music, playing games, reading, and celebrating holidays!
Sarah (14) – Our second daughter. She is our sweet “Sarah Sue” (although her middle name isn’t Sue!). She has a sweet, sensitive spirit, and loves to give gifts to people. She can usually be found snuggling with her kitty, planning an activity for her siblings, or curled up with a good book. She loves singing, horses, American Girl dolls, watching movies, chatting with friends, shopping, and baking.
Michael (10) – Our fifth son. He is a sweet boy who loves jokes and laughing. He has a “million dollar smile” and is an avid reader. He loves Nintendo, basketball, board games, watching movies, and collecting Pokemon cards, and spending time with his friends.
Anna (8) – Our third daughter. She is our little princess, always dancing and twirling around the living room. She is shy and sensitive and has a sweet little giggle when something strikes her as funny. She loves dresses, playing outside, helping Mom in the kitchen, ice skating, American Girl dolls and Disney and Barbie princesses. Anna is our ballerina, and I always enjoy watching her lessons each week.
David (6) – Our sweet baby boy, although growing up fast! He is all boy, but still enjoys snuggling with Mommy. He is always amusing us with his expressions and antics. He loves playing ballgames of any kind, Nintendo, playing with his Cars and Toy Story figures, and playing outside on the swings, slide and trampoline.
Well, that’s all of us! Of course, I didn’t include the 2 dogs, 2 cats, 1 guinea pig, and Laura’s ferret, rabbit, and pet rats, who add their share of activity to the household, as well! I’m sure you’ll be hearing about them in the days to come.
I will try to update this page as needed in the future.
