Family and Friends

We are very blessed to have an incredible support system of family and friends. We have grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends who we are able to spend time with throughout the year. For Christmas, we gather as a family and fondue prior to opening presents. We also like to make homemade lefse for special holiday meals, each of us taking turns at mixing and flipping the lefse. Every fall we host an “Egg Roll Pot Luck” when 40+ of our family and friends come over and eat until we all can barely move. It’s so good and a great time to spend together!

My parents are a very important part of our lives. They have been married for 47 years and live just a few minutes from us. My mom is my best friend and confidant. Both of my parents have been supportive in my decision to adopt again. Actually, it was my dad who said, “You need a daughter too!” and he has been encouraging me to adopt again ever since. They look forward to loving and spoiling even more grandchildren. Because my parents own a vacation time share, we have been able to travel as a family to Florida and Walt Disney World several times. We have also been able to go to Alaska, Mexico, and on several Caribbean cruises.
