Family Focus Why They Love Living in Katy “Our family has lived in Katy for over 30 years and we couldn’t imagine our children growing up in a better city. Katy has the hometown feel of the both small towns that Patrick and Melissa were born in. Patrick is originally from Lumberton, Texas and Melissa was born in Hardinsburg, Kentucky. People in Katy are friendly and always willing to lend a helping hand to their neighbors. Katy is “country” with all the amenities of the city and Houston is close enough that if you want to see a major sporting event, concert, theater, etc., you are able to. We love the people and pride in Tigerland!” What They Love to Do This family most enjoys the local parks in Katy, feeding ducks and being in the outdoors. They love to explore the local businesses in Old Katy, especially antique and resale shops where hidden treasures are often found. The Katy Rice Harvest Festival is one of their most anticipated events of the year, as well as the parade and the Katy Rodeo. Love is in the Air How They Express It: “Something you will hear many times a day in our home is one person will say ‘Love y’all’ and you will hear all the other family members reply with ‘Love y’all.’ Levi is usually the first one to prompt this but we all do it when we want to. I think this makes our family unique because we do remind each other through our love language of what we mean to each other, daily.” Celebrating Valentine’s Day: The family gets in the spirit of this holiday by enjoying mom’s decorating in a special part of their home, and indulging in a nice meal together at home or at a restaurant. They give each other special tokens of their admiration for each other and of course, enjoy creating, crafting and delivering their Valentines. What Makes It Tick: They love reminding their family and friends about how much they mean to them, which is what Valentine’s Day is all about for this tribe. Keeping in mind how much Jesus loves them and how He asks them to love one another is also an important reflection on this holiday.
