Who We Are

The story of how we met kind of dates us.....we met on the internet before dating apps were a "thing". Think of AOL chat and the internet, which no one even probably remembers these days. At first, I would not give him the time of day, but he was persistent. We ended up meeting at the movies with friends and since then, we have never been apart. We dated during college and I will never forget when Matt proposed to me... it was on his birthday at his favorite restaurant. He was so nervous! We were married after we both graduated college. A couple years after getting married, we had our son, Brayden.

Adoption Diary

Our Pets

We have 2 Shih Tzu’s, Tuffy and Everest. They are inside dogs. We also have a Great Pyrenese, Linus, who is an outside dog. He loves to escape and sometimes we will have to go search for him, but he is never far. There is a cat that we named Socks. Socks was here before we moved in and he decided to stick around! We have many chickens, 3 horses, 1 cow, and 2 longhorns. Our family has many more wild horses, cows, longhorns, llamas, emu, donkey, goat, and bison on their farm.

Our Families And Traditions

Marcie- I am really to close to my mom. I literally talk to her every day! She comes to visit a lot and will stay a couple weeks at a time. We also try to go visit her as much as we can. She lives about 5 hours away. I have a brother that lives close to my mom, so when we are in town, we visit with them as well. They have 2 daughters, one of which they adopted from China. Unfortunately, my father passed away a couple months before my wedding. I miss him, but we still celebrate him every chance we get! We also teach Brayden about him and share all the amazing memories we have.

Matt- My mother and dad live in the same town as we do and we see them daily. They are very active in all of our lives. They love to travel, either by plane or in their new RV. I have 2 older brothers, Jeff, my oldest brother, lives in San Francisco. My middle brother Craig lives in San Antonio with his wife, Kristen, and their 2 children.

We love to spend the big holidays with family. Each year we try to alternate whose family we are with. For Christmas, Marcie’s mom has a tradition of giving everyone giant stockings and stuffing them full of little gifts. We also have an Elf, Peppermint, that comes to visit the family. On Christmas Eve, we open one present and then leave out our cookies for Santa. Since my birthday is on July 4th, we are intentional about going to see fireworks and having a get-together with friends and family. We also help host a halloween party with our friends. Each year we pick a theme, decorate, have games and prizes, and try to get our costumes to match the theme. It’s a fun time and we hope to continue the tradition as long as the children let us.
