Our Families

We are very close with both of our families. Our child will have 2 sets of grandparents, a great grandmother, aunts and uncles, as well as great aunts and uncles in their lives.  Our child will also have 10 first cousins to play with and learn many things - whether it is how to throw a football or how to do a cartwheel. 

We cannot wait to teach our child everything that we have learned in life.  We hope that we can instill the values that our parents' instilled in us.  We hope to have fun watching our child grow into the person they are meant to become.  We hope to encourage our child to try to experience new things.  We hope to be able to take lots of family road trips and go to lots of soccer or baseball games.  We hope to encourage our child to follow their dreams.

 Michael's Family at his cousin's wedding 2010
Michael is the youngest of four - he has three older sisters. He grew up in a Chicago suburb in the same house that his parents still live in to this day.  His dad is a Civil Engineer and his mom is a school teacher.  Growing up, he played sports and hung around the neighborhood with family and friends.  His paternal grandfather would come every Thursday night for dinner.  Holidays were spent at his aunt's and uncle’s house with all of their extended family.  They also went camping with his grandparents in the spring and fall.  Summers were spent swimming and boating on the lake. 

Michael has 4 nephews and 4 nieces who we spend a lot of time with. We are invited to watch lots of football games, soccer games, dance recitals and cheer competitions.  Summers are still spent with his family at his parents' cottage boating, swimming and making lots of s'mores.

Michelle's family at her mom's house 2009

Michelle is the oldest of three girls.  She grew up in Chicago until her family moved to the suburbs when she was in sixth grade.  Her father worked in the music industry so she always had the Top 40 records before anyone else.  Her dad and uncle purchased a bowling alley in 1997 and her dad has since retired in Arizona.  Her mom stayed home with the three girls until Michelle's youngest sister was in school full time.  Michelle's mom is an Accounts Payable Manager for a company she has been with for over 20 years.  Although her parents divorced a couple of years ago and her dad moved away, she gets to see her dad a couple of times a year and she talks to her mom just about every day.  Growing up, she went on family vacations and spent Sunday afternoons at her grandparents’ house.  Her parents taught her to be honest and hard working. 

Michelle has 1 niece and 1 nephew who can't wait to have a cousin to show the ropes to.  They can't wait to tell our child about Disney World, going to White Sox games and how to dance in the living room!
