|More About Our Family
We both grew up in loving, God-centered homes with parents and grandparents who loved the Lord and sought to share their love for Him with us. We love the Lord with all our heart, soul, and mind and seek to serve Him every day in all that we do. We model Christ's love before our children and share our heart for the Lord with them. We believe that we are saved by grace alone through faith in the redemptive love of Christ on the cross.
|Our Musical Interest|
We both grew up taking music lessons, so music is a big part of our home life. We enjoy listening to country music and praise music. Sidney has his own Preschool music station on Pandora that he daily asks to listen to. Matt played the guitar growing up and every once in a while will get it out and will play it while Cassie plays the piano. Sidney loves to sit at the piano and sing with Mommy. We enjoy music concerts as well. Every year at Christmas the local community Orchestra has a Christmas concert and we make it a point to attend. When Rodeo time comes around we enjoy the country artist concerts.
|About Our Home/Neighborhood|
We live in a nice, new subdivision. Our home consists of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with a nice open floor plan. We also have a study where Matt has his office and a small flex area where Cassie has her crafts and projects. The back yard is spacious with plenty of space to play and also has a swing set and trampoline. Our lot backs up to an open field and we enjoy sitting on the back porch in the evenings. Our community has a pool and splash pad that we enjoy taking Sidney during the summer months. There is a walking trail at the end of our cul de sac that we enjoying walking in the evenings after Matt gets home from work.
Sidney is our 3-year-old son. He has a fun and happy personality. From the time he was little he has always enjoyed music, dancing, and singing. He's always asking for us to turn the music on or listen to stories. He's gotten very talkative over the last several months and comes up with some very smart ideas. Playing outside in his sandbox and jumping on the trampoline are his favorite things to do. He loves helping around the house - whether it's feeding our Golden Retriever, unloading the dishwasher, or helping gather the laundry. It makes him feel so big! We've seen his love and gentleness for babies and know he will make a great big brother.

We're both the oldest of our siblings and come from big families that are continually getting bigger.
Matt has a brother and two sisters. His brother and one of his sisters are each married, both with two kids and both expecting another one. When we're all together it's fun to watch all the little cousins play together. Matt's dad's side of the family tries to get together at Thanksgiving and again for a week-long vacation in FL in the summer.
