I was born and raised in Centralia, Washington and am the fifth of nine children in my family. My family lived on a small farm where we occasionally had cows, horses, pigs, chickens, sheep, goats, and dogs. Sometimes it meant a lot of work, but most of the time it was just a lot of fun. When I was 15 years old, I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. I have an insulin pump, so I don’t have to give shots…I just can’t eat as much ice cream and chocolate as I would like to! Speaking of food, I love to cook and bake (especially breads and desserts...both things I shouldn't eat much of). I like to garden, although really, I don't know what I'm doing...it is just an adeventure. I also like to read, work on crafts, start projects (I'm horrible at finishing), playing games, and watching movies. Jessica just started first grade so a lot of my spare time now is spent at the school helping, and I love it!

What Andrew has to say about Brianna:
Brianna is amazing! She likes to bake, and she often experiments and find new recipes online and that is always fun. She has a good sense of humor and can be very witty. Through the years she has gotten use to my puns, and now whip them back at me with such speed and agility that sometimes it takes me a minute to think about them. Brianna also likes to make things look nice and decorates well for Christmas or other holidays. That is a good thing, because if it wasn't for her, I would probably wrap all our Christmas presents in newspaper. I am glad she likes to put bows and ribbons on things because it does make it look nice. We also like to watch movies together, and often times we stay up late watching a movie, even though sometimes she falls asleep after the first 15 minutes! She is a good mom and helps Jessica fix up her hair to make it look nice. She also spends a lot of time doing fun projects with Jessica whether it is making snow paint, baking soda and vinegar volcanoes, or planning up a tea party. Brianna is incredible and I am glad she married me!
Jessica and Brianna love making funny faces on the iPad
