Year 0 - 2008

 

Austin Alexander McCormick [23] and Kristen Teresa Casey [22] met in college and quickly grew close, their relationship blossoming. Soon after Kristen graduated, they married in a small ceremony in 2008.

 

Austin [23] and Kristen [22]

 

Year 1 - 2009

 

A year after their marriage, they welcome a baby boy named Gabriel Everett McCormick.

 

Austin [24], Kristen [23], and their son, Gabriel [nb]

 

Year 2 - 2010

 

A year after the birth of their son, Austin gets his way and brought Kristen and Gabe to a reptile expo. They end up bringing home a ball python named Monty.

 

Austin [25], Kristen [24], their son, Gabriel [1], and their pet snake Monty [0]

 

Year 3 - 2011

 

Their first scary moments as parents happen during a trip to the park when Gabe tries to go head first down a slide and ended up breaking his arm! A trip to the hospital and a cast later, everyone is doing just fine!

 

Austin [26], Kristen [25], their son, Gabriel [2], and their pet snake Monty [1]

 

Year 4 - 2012

 

Kristen gets a new job and the family is on the move! They end up moving to Long Island, New York.

 

Austin [27], Kristen [26], their son, Gabriel [3], and their pet snake Monty [2]

 

Year 5 - 2013

 

Another move as Austin gets a new job! They move across country to Seattle, Washington.

 

Austin [28], Kristen [27], their son, Gabriel [4], and their pet snake Monty [3]

 


Year 5 - 2013

 

Year 6 - 2014

 

Finally settled with both Austin and Kristen having good jobs, they decide it's time for another addition, though they are blindsided when the ultrasound shows three little heart beats! They welcome their triplets; Nora Brooklyn, Sophia Charlotte, and Elijah Daniel McCormick. After a short stay in the NICU, the babies are all home and the family is together!

 

Austin [29], Kristen [28], their kids, Gabriel [5], Nora [nb], Sophia [nb], and Elijah [nb]; and their pet snake Monty [4]

 

Year 7 - 2015


 

Sadly, Kristen's grandmother passes away, though she leaves a large portion of her money to Kristen. They use the money to renovate the house!

 

Austin [30], Kristen [29], their kids, Gabriel [6], Nora [1], Sophia [1], and Elijah [1]; and their pet snake Monty [5]

 

Year 8 - 2016

 

The family goes through a scare as one of the triplets, Sophia, gets sick with RSV and needs to be hospitalized. It shakes up Austin and Kristen pretty well, but within two weeks, she's back at home with the family and doing much better.

 

Austin [31], Kristen [30], their kids, Gabriel [7], Nora [2], Sophia [2], and Elijah [2]; and their pet snake Monty [6]

 

Year 9 - 2017

 

In a weird turn of events, when trying to feed their snake Monty a baby rat, he refuses to eat it. Gabriel ends up demanding they keep it as a pet and that's how the family gets their pet rat Pancakes (named by the triplets).

 

Austin [32], Kristen [31], their kids, Gabriel [8], Nora [3], Sophia [3], and Elijah [3]; and their pet snake Monty [6] and pet rat Pancakes [0]

 

Year 10 - 2018

 

Now that the triplets were older and in school, Kristen was starting to have empty nest syndrome. Instead of deciding to birth a child, Austin and Kristen decided to adopt! They got matched with a local sibling set; Parker Miguel [10], Jacob Dallas [7], and Hannah Natalia [2]. It took some time and some counselling but kids adjusted wonderfully to their forever home!

 

Austin [33], Kristen [32], their kids; Parker [10], Gabriel [9], Jacob [7], Nora [4], Sophia [4], Elijah [4], and Hannah [2]; and their pet snake Monty [7] and pet rat Pancakes [1]

 

Year 11 - 2019

 

Austin gets a bonus at work and the family goes on a Disney Cruise! They all have a wonderful time and it's an amazing time for family bonding!

 

Austin [34], Kristen [33], their kids; Parker [11], Gabriel [10], Jacob [8], Nora [5], Sophia [5], Elijah [5], and Hannah [3]; and their pet snake Monty [8] and pet rat Pancakes [2]

 

Year 12 - 2020

 

Thinking their family was complete, Kristen was surprised to find out she was pregnant! They complete their family with a baby girl; Evelyn Adelaide McCormick

 

Austin [35], Kristen [34], their kids; Parker [12], Gabriel [11], Jacob [9], Nora [6], Sophia [6], Elijah [6], Hannah [4], and Evelyn [nb]; and their pet snake Monty [9] and pet rat Pancakes [3]
