My husband, Dan, and me. We met in college–I was a freshman, and Dan was a junior. You can read about how we met and started dating here. We were married on August 21, 1999. You can see pictures of our wedding here. Dan’s been a LCMS Lutheran pastor for 10 years now. Even though he’s a Viking fan, he’s still the love of my life.
Ethan is our firstborn. He’s the child that taught us about parenting. He loves Lego, Pokemon and Yu Gi Oh cards, and the Avengers. He’s a sensitive boy, and still loves cuddling with his Mama. He is a true firstborn child, and alternates between loving and fighting with his younger siblings.
Zachariah is our middle child. He’s a sweet, loving boy, and is the child that gets hurt feelings the easiest. He’s a textbook middle child, and loves to make jokes to get a laugh. Zach loves anything related to do with technology, especially playing on the computer or his Nintendo 3DS. He has the biggest appetite in the family, and can often be heard asking, “Can I have a snack?”
Emma is our youngest child. She’s a girly girl, wearing tiaras and tutus, but never lets her brothers get the upper hand and can be found elbow deep in mud wearing those same tiaras and tutus. She adores animals, Hello Kitty and Littlest Pet Shops, and always eats her broccoli first. Emma is our “chatty Kathy,” and rarely stops talking. She was the perfect completion for our family!
