A little about us, both my wife and I grew up in the DC metro area, I met her in 2004 and we got married in 2005, we have two girls, been homeowners since Dec 2008, we have lots of family near us, and spend a lot of time at church. I currently work for the largest employer in the DC area, the Federal Government..

The Family Financial Report was first thought up in 2010 as a way to report our finances to my family since we spent so little time talking about finances.  This was a way I could report back to my wife and allow her time to analyze the data at her convenience.  I hope it will serve both as a guide and accountability for us as well as a resource for whoever wants to see how we do budgeting. 

I'll try to make things simple and practical but if you have any questions or if there is anything you don't understand please feel free to ask.

Here are some posts that tries to capture what we're about:

Having a THESIS for LIFE
Adjusted Rate of Inflation 2004-2010
Expense: Pillow Pets and other As Seen on TV ads
Asking for the promotion
Shalom - Seeking True Wealth
