Our House and Neighborhood
Our Home

In January of 2017 we purchased our home. It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It also has an attached garage, which happens to be Ian's favorite spot for working on cars and motorcycles. When we first purchased the house, it was very basic, so we took it upon ourselves to spice it up and give it life. Ian loves doing little projects around the house and is currently redoing our back deck. We have a large fenced in backyard, which offers lots of room to run around and play.

We love our neighborhood because it has a safe and welcoming feel to it. If you step outside, you'll see kids in the yards playing. We also love the town we live in because it's the safest around and has some of the best schools as well. One of the towns nearby has events going on almost every weekend and offers exposure to different cultures. What we love most about where we live is having friends nearby that mean the world to us.

Our Extended Families
Family Halloween Party

Family is a very important part of our lives and we wouldn't be where we are today without them. We live three hours from our family, which creates a lot of excitement for us. Once every other month we plan a mini vacation to visit our families. Although both sides are from what we like to call 'the country', (aka rural Missouri), we stay very busy while there. So, when you're out in the sticks, what do you do for fun? Well, 'the country' has its perks, by offering horseback riding, time on the lake, hunting, fishing, and much more. When inside, we play a lot of games, such as our family card game Peanuts, it's the best! We also play video/computer games with younger siblings, bake together, and visit grandparents and/or friends.

Thanksgiving With Family

Karcie has three sisters and a brother who is right in the middle of all four girls. Karcie also has one niece and one nephew and they are both very excited to have a cousin!

Ian is the baby of his family, with one big brother. He also has two young nephews. God has blessed us with amazing people to call family and we can say, with total confidence, that they will accept and love this child as much as we will.
