Plano, TX
Our first child, Caroline, was born June 5th, 2009. She has completely rocked our world. Patty stays home to take care of Caroline full time. Reagan is a computer programmer at PFS Web. We met Jan 9th 2004. Patty's best-friend from high school, Dixie, slyly matched us up. In July of 2004 we moved to Allen, TX for work. We married Oct 29th, 2005 and moved into our current house in Plano the following April. We also have two furry children named Annabell and Oliver. We love to travel. Throughout our marriage we have taken some incredible trips. We haven't gone anywhere with Caroline (other than Tulsa) yet but we're planning a family trip this summer.

Money Pit Part Two

Earlier this spring we gained a tenant. She was loud at night, mean, had 3 wild kids and never paid her rent. Last week we bought a trap and some cat food. The 1st night we put out the trap we caught one of the babies. Second night we randomly caught a possum (ugliest and meanest animal). The third night we caught TWO babies. They must have been holding hands as they walked into the trap. Last night when the mom came back to find her babies gone she went crazy. I heard her running back and forth in the attic and clawing at the floorboards trying to find them. A little while later our dogs started barking up a storm. I looked out the storm door and she was sitting at our front door hissing and showing her teeth at the dogs! (I guess she figured we stole her babies, she was going to steal ours.) She didn't even move when she saw me. I had to open the door and scare her off. I read someone's blog and they talked about having a raccoon in their attic. Her suggestion was to burn down the house because it's so hard to get rid of them. We did consider this option for a few moments but figured we'd end up with greater problems. When Reagan got home I made him watch guard while I set the trap. Luckily we caught her!

Also after waiting months our master shower renovations is complete! We love the new shower. It feels very "spa" like. Below are before and after pictures.

  1. How scary!?! I would not know what to do with a raccoon! It does look like a spa! Beautiful colors and tiles

  2. The new bathroom looks fantastic! Hope you're enjoying it.... looks like all the hard work and waiting was worth it!

  3. Your story makes me laugh....LOL! And I had no idea that they live in attics....YIKES!!!

    Beautiful bathroom! Wasn't it worth it. Now, can you come do mine? ;)
