1: Molly and Becca are my happy thoughts. They bring so much sunshine, laughter and joy into our home. I'm always fascinated by their wild imaginations. They inspire me to be daring, take chances and dream. I am so grateful for my little giggly girls. Life would not be the same without them. | Dear Birth Parents, We are Sean and Jennifer and we are honored that you are taking the time to get to know us.

2: About Us...... | Sean and Jen met through mutual friends. It was an instant connection. We love to be active. We enjoy camping, hiking, biking, and all sports. We also love to travel. We look forward to sharing these adventures with our children.
3: Sean is a Cardinal Fan!!! Baseball games are a fun family event. | Grilling out and playing lawn games with friends and family are regular occurrences.
4: I met Jen when she moved to Illinois for her first job, as a volleyball coach and professor. We met through a mutual friend. After immediately hitting it off, we were connected. Her smile, energy, and passion are what initially attracted me to Jen. As we grew closer I saw her constant creativity to think outside of the box in unique situations both professionally or personally. Jen has an unending energy and loves to be active. Jen's desire to have children is expressed to me regularly and our family would become even richer and more fulfilling to share with children. | In Sean's words...

10: Kendra, Beth and Leah had a blast on their trip to Colorado this summer. Kendra just got her drivers license and was in the mood for a road trip so they all packed up and left for the open road with Colorado in their sights. It was hard to see my little girl drive away, she is an adult now and its time to let her go. I'm glad they had fun and arrived home safe. She'll always be my little girl...

13: We all had a blast at the 4th of July beach party in San Diego this year. Kelly won the watermelon eating contest and Parker experienced fireworks for the very first time. It was great to spend time with so many wonderful friends. We can't wait to do this again next year.
15: We had a blast at the Johnson's Annual Beach BBQ this year on South Padre Island, Texas. Charlie won the rib cook-off and James won the pie eating contest. The girls had fun helping at the face painting booth and everyone had a blast playing all of the games like the water balloon toss and potato sack race. We walked away with great memories and some new friends. We're all looking forward to next year.
17: 6/12/12 | Our Annual Family Reunion was fantastic this year! We had so much fun playing games, telling stories and eating lots of great food. My favorite part was listening to all of the grandparents tell stories about their childhood, boy how things have changed. It makes me grateful to live in such convenient times. I will always cherish the memories we create at these special events. I hope everyone had as much fun as we did. Until next year... | FAMILY
19: Molly's turning 3! | Molly had a princess party with lots of games, friends and a special princess cake. We spent the day at Fairytale Town and the kids had a blast making their own princess crowns and wands. The best part was when the princess came out to surprise Molly, the look on her face when she saw a real live princess was priceless. What a fun day!
21: Car packed, camping gear loaded, coffee in hand and ready to hit the road...and we're off! The kids didn't sleep a wink last night, they were so excited about the trip they stayed up helping Dad pack the car. We've been looking forward to having some time together and I think this was just the thing we needed. A long, long drive. | Colorado Here We Come!
22: Play time at The Jones house. Parker, Kim and Andy had a blast playing tag and hide and go seek now they're all tuckered out and ready for nap time...
24: Andy and Sarah's first day back at school. I can't believe Andy is in Kindergarten and Sarah is in First Grade this year. My little babies are growing up too fast. This is going to be a great year!

28: We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year. The whole family came over and I prepared my very first turkey and it was a success! This year we thought it was important to give back so after dinner we all went to serve Thanksgiving dinner to those less fortunate. This was the best part of the day. We all decided that serving the homeless will become a new family tradition.
31: Laura is growing up so fast. crawling around getting into anything and everything. Before you know it she'll be walking.
33: Taylor's first Christmas was a memorable one. All of the family came over Christmas morning and we enjoyed opening gifts and eating lots of yummy treats. Later that evening we joined all of the neighbors on a Christmas carol sing along. It was magical.
