About Greyson

In 2012, we were so blessed to adopt Greyson (Grey).  Our crazy little 2 year old is probably the funniest kid we’ve ever met. Everyday we thank our lucky stars and his wonderful birth mom Audrey for the opportunity to be his parents.  Not one day goes by where we don’t realize our responsibility to love, educate and be there for…

Manson Weekend!

Every year we head over to Manson, WA with Nic’s side of the family for Apple Blossom.  It’s just a great time of all being together!  We head to the Apple Blossom parade and then have a bbq at the house.

Our Home!

We bought our house together in 2005 and since then, I can’t even remember what it used to look like!  We’ve done so many remodeling projects, front yard, back yard, kitchen, bathroom, new paint, new hardware….  painted the house, new windows and then a master bedroom and bathroom addition!  We love West Seattle!

Travels

We’ve had a lot of fun traveling around the world before kids – from Italy to Paris to Washington DC.   We still like to travel but now it’s to more low key places like Maui for relaxing in the sun and playing on the beach.

Halloween

Halloween is one of Jennie’s favorite holidays and is unfortunately, one of Nic’s least favorite holidays…  Greyson seems to be torn… he hates dressing up but he loved trick or treating Growing up, Jennie’s family had a haunted house in their garage.  All of our family and friends would come over and put it on for the neighborhood, it is…

Our Wedding

If we aren’t home, we’re usually at Guemes.  Guemes Island is such a special place to Nic and his family and now to ours. Our first Valentine’s Day, Nic took me on a weekend trip to Guemes.  We had only been dating for three months but it was there that I knew that I would always love him. (Nic knew…
