Our Home

Our Home:

We don’t want to just show you photos of our home but really want to tell you the feeling that we strive to have IN our home.

Our home has been described, as inviting and cozy. We love creating a space that serves our family and friends. More than that we like to create a space of safety. We always want our kids to feel safe and loved in our home.  A place for them to escape daily stresses and pressures.

We love gathering around a kitchen table with treats and games, or making some popcorn and piling on mom and dad’s bed to watch a movie. We are all kind of homebodies and love spending time here.

In the summer, we enjoy going for walks around our neighborhood, playing whiffle ball in our backyard and going for bike rides. You will often find us all in the backyard jumping on the tramp or throwing a ball with the dogs.

In the winter, we have a huge sledding hill next to our house where we like to take the sleds out and spend a day in the snow. Building a snowman is always a must and all three of our kids love making snow ice cream! We also love watching our littlest dog in the snow, he loves running around as fast as he can and burring his face in all the fresh snow!

We have put lots of time and hard work into our home custom building it from scratch about 5 years ago. We loved doing it and the way it turned out, but we love the people in it the most!

 

Neighborhood:

We live up close to the mountains and everyday are so grateful for this beautiful view that we have.  We have great neighbors who we are extremely close to. So, close that we had a gate connecting our backyards so we can visit easily! Our neighborhood is full of dogs, cats, horses, and bunnies.

We live in a neighborhood where everyone looks out for each other. Last year Stayton had a tumor removed from his neck right before Christmas. We had lots of neighbors bringing us dinner, offering to help with the kids, and even bringing by Christmas activities for the kids to do so they didn’t miss out on any Christmas fun. They prayed for us and sent us their love and we are forever grateful for all of them.

Our neighborhood is safe, and well-rounded with kids and parents of all ages. We live close to the schools, parks, and are within an hour of all the big city events. Our school district has been amazing. They know my kids by name and are always good to communicate with us on how they are doing.

We love where we love and the community we have, we truly feel like we were meant to be here!
