Our Extended Families
Dinner with Both Families

Kristina is the middle of three children. She is very close to her sister Carrie; even though Carrie lives in Arizona, Kristina never misses the important milestones – it is just a short plane ride away! These trips are full of adventure for the whole family. We spend time on ATV's during the day and enjoy playing Scattergories when the sun goes down! Kristina is also very close with her parents, who are only a few miles away. Our daughter, Alexa, has a special bond with Grandpa as they spend every afternoon together after school! Kristina and her mom have a tradition of making Christmas cookies together every year. This is Alex's favorite time to bake as we continue the 4th generation of hand mixing on the counter and getting flour everywhere!

Kristina with Her Siblings

Scott has three brothers and a sister who all live nearby. His favorite memory growing up is working on cars with his dad and brothers – it is still their favorite discussion topic! His sister has two daughters who love to share new baby names with us! Alexa enjoys spontaneous visits from her uncle as he always has his guitar with him and shares his love of music with her. We always look forward to summer as the whole family joins in on weekend camping trips and music by the campfire and everyone is excited for your child to join us!

Our House and Neighborhood
Home Sweet Home

Our home is located in a suburban neighborhood in Colorado. It is a short drive to many cultural events in the city as well as some of the best ski resorts in the nation where we enjoy our favorite snowy adventures. We chose our location because the schools in our district are rated as some of the best in the nation. The elementary school is just a short walk from our home which makes it easy to walk our daughter, Alexa, to school in the morning. Our neighborhood has huge trees that provide shade in the summer and a beautiful backdrop of colors in the fall, which are perfect for our evening get-togethers with the neighbors around the fire pit. Our community just worked together to rebuild the neighborhood park about two blocks from our house – Alexa loves to play there and she can't wait for a baby brother or sister to bring with her!

Our home is a ranch style house with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. We have put our hearts into our home as we have remodeled and are currently having fun designing a nursery! We have a full basement with a game room and Scott has a hobby room where he and Alexa enjoy building remote control cars and trucks. In the summer we enjoy a good family BBQ on the back deck, and the winter brings cozy movie nights by the fire or game night playing Alexa’s favorite game – BINGO!
