Our Families

Brad's Family:

Siblings: 4 brothers, 1 sister
Birth Order: #4 of 6
Nieces & Nephews: 9 (two are so new we don't have pictures yet!)

Brad's dad works as an educator for the church, so they moved a few times while growing up.  Now, however, his parents and siblings are settled in Northern Utah.  They will tell you they're not a competitive family, but that's not true. I don't know how it can be with 5 boys all so close in age :)  We can never get together without some kind of competition, whether it's ping-pong, basketball, arm wrestling, video games or even lawn chair jumping.

Missy's Family:

Siblings: 2 brothers, 1 sister
Birth Order: #3 of 4
Nieces & Nephews: 4

Missy's family, though spread out throughout the world is a very close knit family. Missy's mom passed away in 2005, but we have since been able to welcome an amazing lady to the family as our "bonus mom."  Her sister lives in the North Carolina with her husband and 3 kids.  We've been out to visit them at least once a year since we've been married and they have been back to Utah to visit us a few times too.  It's a blast to get together. Her older brother is working in the Philippines.  He recently was married to his wife May and they recently had their first child, a little girl named Rachel.  We're hoping that he will be able to come home and visit frequently.  Her little brother just finished up his first tour of duty with the military in Iraq and is now living in Utah.  We are so proud of him!
