|More About Our Family
Dogs: We have a 4-year-old bullhuahua (French bulldog/chihuahua) named Duke and a 2-year-old miniature pinscher named Reese. They are the most cuddly and friendly pups ever. They love children because our nieces, nephews, and friend's children give them lots of smooches!
Cat: We have a 2-year-old calico named Atticus. Matt found her in an attic when he was working in animal removal and we decided to give her the loving home she deserved.
Gecko: Jellyman is our crested gecko. He was our first purchase as a couple in 2012. He loves to eat bananas and can live up to 20 years!
We look forward to sharing our family traditions like carving pumpkins for Halloween, setting up the Christmas tree on Thanksgiving, dying eggs and eating seafood on Easter, as well as creating some new traditions. We are ready for Saturday morning pancakes and cartoons, trips to the fair, days spent at the beach or lake, family pool day barbecues, and so much more.
Matt did Taekwondo competitively when he was younger and was a state champion. His parents never missed a match, no matter how far they had to travel. When Matt played football or baseball, his dad was a coach. His family was always involved in what he enjoyed. Now, we all go to our nieces and nephews sports to cheer them on as a family. Matt grew up having pool days and barbeques on the weekends, family get-togethers during football season, seafood for dinner on Easter, putting up the Christmas tree on Thanksgiving and decorating it with his sister, and having New Years celebrations with their neighbors. Matt’s family enjoyed frequenting the beaches, theme parks, going fishing, and going boating. Their house was the house to be at for friends growing up – everyone wanted to come over. The kids played kickball, football, street hockey, pool, etc. and got fed a good meal when they were done. The rest of their family lives in West Virginia so the majority of family vacations were spent in the mountains.
Morgan grew up in a very musical family. Her mom is a music teacher at an elementary school/choir director at her local church, her dad was a musician, her brother is a musician/choir director at his local church, and her sister is a music teacher for k-12. Morgan has always had a love for music because it clearly runs in their family. Instead of directing a choir or playing in a band, Morgan decided to take dance classes. She loved it so much that she stuck with it and has been the JV dance team coach for the team that she was on in high school for the last 6 years. Morgan’s family is big on traditions. She grew up having large family meals for every holiday, having pumpkin carving competitions for Halloween, dying eggs for Easter, inviting other people over that did not have a family to join for Thanksgiving, watching fireworks from a hotel downtown or doing fireworks in front of their house with the neighbors for the 4th of July, and having an indoor picnic on blankets on Super Bowl Sunday each year. Her grandma made “grandma buns” for every holiday and they became a staple in households throughout the neighborhood. She grew up going to church every Sunday and doing the potluck meals after service. Almost every night they would have family meals where they would sit around the table and talk about their days. Morgan is excited to continue some of these traditions as well as start new ones with our child.
