We've spent a lot of time thinking about how we might raise our child.

What traditions will we pass down?  What hobbies will we share as a family?  What adventures will we go on?  What foods will we make? 

These are the things that will make us unique as a family. 

What things from our childhoods would we like to share?

Seth:  I loved building things, so definitely Legos, erector sets, model kits, etc!

Jessica:  Our child's name spelled out in a puzzle (I had one and loved it).  Also books from my childhood that I kept so story time will be extra special! 

What favorite childhood foods would we make?

Seth:  My mother's version of Baked Alaska for birthdays and special occasions. 

Jessica:  For everyday, the same savory carrot ring that my mom made as a side dish.  For birthday cakes, the 7 minute boiled frosting my grandmother made. 

What childhood books would we like to read with our child?

Seth: My favorite childhood book, "Thidwick the Big Hearted Moose" by Dr. Seuss (I often give as baby gifts), and "Captains Courageous" by Rudyard Kipling when he or she is a bit older.

Jessica: It is so hard to choose!  All of the Madeline books,  Berenstain Bears, Curious George, and Winnie the Pooh.  And the Miss Nelson series when our child is in elementary school.   

What adventures are we excited to go on with our child?

Seth: Travelling - trips for the weekend or a longer vacation.  We'll definitely visit Canada since that's where Jessica is from.

Jessica:  Yes, absolutely visiting Canada.  Also exploring local places -- like random stops when we're going on a Sunday drive, Definitely things tike holiday markets, craft shows and local events. 

What holiday traditions are we excited to share?

Seth: I love big holiday meals that bring friends and family together to celebrate. 

Jessica: I'm excited to continue making some of the same recipes that have been handed down, and shared around the family.

This is a bit about us.  We'd love to get to know about you!
