Our Parents


We found this cool idea and decided to participate!! We are so excited to share about our parents.

This is our Dad. His name is Jake. He is 24 and graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in Economics. Mom says he is very smart. We just think he's pretty darn cool! He worked a lot in college, but is about to start a new job. We don't like the idea, but Mom is very excited! :)
Our Dad is a huge football fan. In our house there are only 2 teams that matter: The Carolina Gamecocks and the Dallas Cowboys!

This is our Mom. Her name is Maggie and she is also 24 years old. She is 12 days younger than our Dad. She is going to be starting her first year teaching full-time this year. She is very excited! She'll be teaching second grade.
Our Mom loves to shop, paint, and her favorite color is pink! She likes to read and spend time curled up on the couch with us. Her favorite part of the day is when she comes home to us because we are always so excited to see her!

We live in good ol' South Carolina! We were born and raised in South Carolina and so were our parents. Mom loves South Carolina. She says she was born a southern girl for a reason... because she loves warm weather and slow-paced life. She's no city girl!

Here's a picture our parents had made last December.

This is our family on Easter. Our parents love us very much. They do a lot of what they do because of us and wanting what is best for us. We are so lucky because they put us first.


  1. Oh Boy!! My mom would be sooooo excited to know about YOUR mom. My mom taught Second Grade for about 87 years. Your mom will love it. You two have grrrreat parents. I like your dad's blue shirt.
