Meet the Deckers

Hi there!  I'm Carly.  He's Ryan.  We have 3 sweet little boys and count ourselves enormously blessed to live out the lives we are blessed to have here in Colorado.

 We became "The Deckers" 7 years ago and have had the wildest adventure of a life so far together.  In 7 years we have moved across the world, traveled to 10 countries together, entered the parenting world, started foster care, battled chronic illness and that's just the first few years!  We can't wait to see what else God has in store for us...

Fall 2017

Fall 2016

This blog was originally designed to update our families and friends when we moved to Saudi Arabia for Ryan's master's degree but has since blossomed into a chronicle of our life. 

Our sweet, wild and independent oldest son is Gideon James.  He was born August 19, 2015 and his birth story was perfection.  Gideon is a vibrant, curious love bug with a special love in his heart for pillows, forts, M&M's, fire trucks and trains.  He has the most delicious red hair you have ever seen! He has brought such joy to our family and is legitimately one of the funniest humans we know.

Our sweet, fat Sir came into our lives like a hurricane in December 2016.  His story is MIRACULOUS and heartbreaking all at once and I look forward to the day I can share all of it on the blog.  As he is our little foster guy we have to protect his face, legal name and most details surrounding his placement but you'll see his sweet self on the blog all the time.  He loves nothing more than a ride in the carrier on Ryan, a hearty snack, playing in the kitchen cabinets and being tickled.  It's a joy to parent and love him.

Finally, we will welcome a 3rd baby boy into the mix sometime in January/February of 2018.  If you're doing the math, you are correct that we will have 3 boys under 2.5 years old VERY soon!  Yes, it is chaotic,  Yes, it is exhausting.  No, we wouldn't trade it for anything.

  I (Carly) am a Jesus -follower, wife, mama, foster mama and pediatric nurse.  Things I love...Jesus, Ryan, Gideon, our little foster Sir, mamahood, healthy living, the fall/pumpkins/October, social justice, nursing, coffee dates, mountain vacations, dark chocolate, holiday eves, hospitality, and Africa.

Ryan is a water engineer and is passionate about water treatment and clean water.  He's wicked smart.  He is a rockstar husband and the best dad.  He loves Jesus, making everyone laugh (the more awkward the better!), rock climbing, when I make him homemade cookies, time with his best friends, camping,  wrestling our boys, ultimate frisbee and Hallmark chick flicks.  

Grumples and Poppy, our black goldendoodles, bring us so much joy and mischief. They love nothing more than a mountain hike, a huge chew bone, and some spoiling love.

In early 2012, chronic illness became a part of our story when Ryan was diagnosed with severe Crohn's Disease.  You can read about this journey by hopping over to Reaching For Fringe.  This site follows our battle and is a small piece of our role in the chronically ill community.

So grab a cup of coffee, find a comfy spot, and stay awhile!
