Q&As with Alyssa:
What’s ONE word that best describes each person’s personality?
Jeff – creative
Bridget – sweet
Jeff – he’s in the Coast Guard, is the BEST girl dad, and he can make or fix just about anything!
Alyssa – I’m a stay at home mom so coffee is my life line lol, I love to read, and I love making lesson plans and teaching my girls
Maddy – she’s 5 and our oldest girl and is so independent and helpful, she has an engineers mind and is always drawing plans for something she and her daddy can create together, she is just coming out of a 2 and a half year “no pants” streak – my girl LOVES dresses and tutus! She’s also a total water bug and loves swimming and trying to do tricks in the water.
Cassie – she’s 3 and our middle girl. She loves stuffed animals and has at least 3 with her at all times, she is obsessed with bugs and animals – especially worms and horses, and she loves gymnastics! She’s always finding something to climb, jump on, or do tricks on!
Bridget is 3mths and our youngest. She loves being outside, takes after her sisters in loving the water, and she loves swinging!
What’s your favorite family activity?
It’s probably a tie between going on hikes and playing and grilling in the backyard.
What’s a typical weekend consist of for your family?
It depends on the weekend, but generally Friday is movie night, Saturday is hike/beach/or playing outside at home. Before COVID Sunday was church, lunch with friends, then a lazy evening at home – now it’s church online followed by outside play and movie night.
Do you have a family ritual or tradition?
Dinner time is family time every night, we have various traditions for each holiday, and Friday nights are movie nights.
Have you taken a family vacation? If so, what’s your favorite memory from that vacation?
We went to universal studios for Maddys fourth birthday. We had just moved to Mississippi and didn’t know anyone yet, but we did have friends who lived close to Disney and met us there. I will never forget opening the door between our rooms and the girls seeing each other! They were so excited. We really loved watching the magic unfold for both maddy and Cassie as they met their favorite characters and watched shows!
What’s your greatest “family goal”?
To raise our kids to love Jesus and to teach them to show His love to others.
