We met in middle school at band camp. We caught each other’s eye right away and became good friends! Two years later we started dating in high school with our first date being the annual band banquet.
We stayed together through collage even though we did not attend the same university. After we finished our degrees we got engaged and married two years later.
Even through tough times we have never looked back. We are best friends and partners.
We enjoy special activities such as pizza and movie night where we eat the kids favorite foods, make some popcorn, and head upstairs to watch a new show or sports game on the projector screen. We also like to have Sunday's where after church we come home and grill outside and watch the kids play in the backyard. Church itself is part of our weekly routine and the kids look forward to attending. The kids also love to cheer at their schools sporting events!
Home is where our heart is
We live in a safe, quiet, gated community in a beautiful family oriented town in Texas. Our neighborhood has awesome nature trails, parks, and a lake for boating and fishing. We moved into our forever home just over a year ago and have had fun making it our own. Our home has room for our family to grow and everything we need including a playroom, movie room, covered basketball goal/court, and big shady backyard with a giant playground. There are younger neighborhood kids and they have all become good friends. We strive to be the house where all the kids want to come play because it's fun and safe. The kids private school is right outside the back gate and we can walk, ride bikes, or take the golf cart there. We have joined and rooted ourselves into a local church just five minutes away and love the community, fellowship, outreach, and children's programming. Our extended and family and many friends, new and lifelong, live close by. We love to decorate our home for the holidays and birthdays and fill it with lots of activity and excitement. On a good day it is filled with the smell of freshly baked salted chocolate chip cookies (moms recipe) or some home cooked Mexican Rice. Our dog can also be seen running around with the kids or snuggled on the couch. Our house is definitely a home filled with life and love. Not a dull moment!
Thank you for your consideration
Thank you for taking the time to learn about our family. We pray that each person who reads this is filled with a peace and comfort as they choose their path, no matter the decision that is made.
We promise that your child will always be given every opportunity to become all of who they are meant to be. And they will always know just how special and unique they are because God has made them with a perfect purpose.
We promise to raise your child in a Christian home with an emphasis on personal growth and education. To be endlessly supportive and encouraging to them, to love them unconditionally, and to be thankful for this gift everyday.
Our family is not perfect but with each day we will strive to get a bit closer. And our hope is that there is child meant for our family waiting for the right time to change our lives, our hearts, and our perspectives. And that your journey and story will be honored as well.
With love and gratitude,
Eric and Candice
