Meet Kallie

Hi! My name is Kallie and I am excited to be a contributor to 3 Boys and A Dog. I live in a small town in South Texas. I have been married to my husband, Scout, for five years and we have two daughters. I have been a stay-at-home-mom since our oldest was born.

My husband works in the oilfield. He is gone half of the year for work, but when he’s home he enjoys fishing and spending time with the family.

Pocahontas (also known as Thing 1) is 4 years old. She plays t-ball in the spring and is a cheerleader for the local youth football league in the fall. She also takes gymnastics and enjoys practicing her tricks in my living room. She enjoys learning, catching bigger fish than Daddy and playing with her little sister.

Button (also known as Thing 2) is 3 years old. She is my fighter. She has had many medical problems in her short life,  but she doesn’t let it slow her down. She is too young to participate in sporting events in our town, but she enjoys cheering on her sister. Button also takes gymnastics and aspires to be on the gyms competition team. She also wants to play t-ball and cheer when she’s big enough. She enjoys getting into trouble, coloring and playing with her big sister.

I like to craft, scrapbook, and read. I enjoy a wide variety of crafts and often try new things. My favorite author is Nicholas Sparks. I own every one of his books and have read them all several times.

As a family, we enjoy a number of outdoor activities. You can often find us fishing, camping, kayaking or just taking a walk around the ranch. We also enjoy taking the kids on bike rides around town.

      Johannah,

      Great question! Pocahontas and Button are not their given names. My husband’s grandfather was half Native American. When it became more common and accepted for NA kids to have English names, many families still gave the children “Indian names”. Pocahontas and Button are their Indian names. The tradition goes that the more NA the child looks, the more NA their nickname is. Both of my girls were born with lots of black hair. When their great-grandfather saw them both the first time (at 2 weeks old), Poca still had her dark hair and was, therefore, given a very NA nickname. Button, however, had already lost most of her dark hair by then. Their great-grandfather always said that Button was “as cute as a button”, and the nickname stuck and became her NA nickname.

  6. Love how active your family is! I’m trying to get my boys excited about playing outside, unfortunately, they’d much rather be inside playing video games and watching TV!
