Our Story

Ben and I met in 1996, began dating in 1999 and married in 2001. Now 20 years and 2 children later, we have returned to where our life together began. Ben works for the Federal Reserve and I have the privilege of staying home with our two precious boys.

Daddy's Big Day

Ben and Ethan spent the whole day together all by themselves today! Ben was off work for President's Day and I was not. So, I got up this morning and headed to school while the boys lounged at home. I was anticipating 57 phone calls asking "Where is this?" and "How do I do that?" but I did not get the 1st frantic phone call! I called to check in twice and they were doing great each time. Ethan had cereal, 2 naps, a bottle, lots of play time, some Praise Baby music, loads of quality time with Daddy, and even went on a trip to the grocery store. Ben managed to swiffer the floors, too!

I am so proud of them! My boys are growing up!

Ethan and Lucy get along wonderfully! She will let him do anything he wants to her and she'll just wag her tail. Lately, you can find the two of them side by side. If she's not curled up right next to him, he's trying to climb over her. He is fascinated with her fur, but the other day he decided he might like to see what it tastes like, too. Priceless!


We woke up this morning to a winter wonderland! Of course, we had to take Ethan outside. He kept looking down and you could see his little brain thinking...hmmmm...there's something different out here, it doesn't normally look like this. Even Lucy was excited to prance around in the snow. This doesn't happen often in Texas, but it's beautiful and supposed to continue coming down all day long. So much for all of the errands that I needed to run today!
