About Me

My photo
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.

Thanksgiving 2010

Caroline and I spent 10 days in Tulsa over Thanksgiving. We stayed with Josh and Andrea for the first several days while Tim and Sandy spoke at a church in Sweden. Then we spent the next few days taking care of John and Tamara's dogs while they (and their 4 kids) went to Hawaii. Reagan met us in Tulsa Tuesday night. We had a great time hanging out with family and friends. Surprising we didn't take many pictures while there. Below are some. They got out of order and I'm to tired to reorganize them!

Daddy came to town!! We missed him so much. Thank God for Facetime on the iPhone. We were able to see and talk to him almost every night.
Reagan and I took pictures of Rick and Sarah's family for their Christmas cards. We took these in downtown Tulsa.

I love this picture of Rick and Sarah. Gorgeous people from the inside out!

Little Chris is so photogenic

Our last night in town we took C to see Rhema Lights with Katie. If your ever in Tulsa between Thanksgiving and Christmas you have to stop by Rhema Bible College to see their campus at night. The entire campus is covered in Christmas lights (over 2 million lights!). It's beautiful!

Lunch with Chris

My nephew Chris is visiting Oklahoma this week from Jackson Hole, WY. We met him half way between his brother Aaron's house and our place for lunch. It was great seeing him and Caroline loves seeing her cousin!


It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas!

And it's not even Thanksgiving!! This past weekend we put out our Christmas stuff. I realize it's very early but I wanted to get it out before we left for Tulsa next Tuesday. Also we FINALLY had a mantel installed last week and I couldn't wait to hang our stockings!

Got a new tree topper this year
Our three ornaments
I love these!

We have a tradition in our house where we buy one special ornament each year. This was the first year we were married. We had our honeymoon at Walt Disney World and got this there.


Where is Fall?

November 1st and we're wearing shorts! Ps, thanks "Aunt" Kisha for the cute new shirt.
