About Us

The Captive
My name is Elizabeth. Depending on how you know me, you may call me Elizabeth, Liz, Ebis, or “Hey You, American.” Originally, I was kept captive by doctor’s orders based on the Tiniest Captor trying to escape early. That turned into the Bigger Captor and the Smaller Captor enforcing the rules.

Now that the Tiniest Captor has been born, my captivity is based on her needs. Plus the Bigger and Smaller Captor still want stuff from me.

Anyway, I digress. I work for NATO, which is what brought us to Europe from our home: Cheyenne, Wyoming in the good ol’ US of A. I never thought I’d get an interview when I sent in my application, but little did I know, I’d end up with a job! Call it fate, luck, or whatever you want, and here we are. Life is short, so it’s best to take advantage of the opportunities that come your way. Your life story will be full of interesting memories that way!

The Bigger Captor
Joshua works full time for a law firm back in Wyoming. It’s awesome because he gets to work from home. The time change can be a bit of a challenge, but he’s still able to do awesome work and most people don’t know he’s not in the office downtown. (And most people don’t know that he’s probably doing it in only his undies…. just kidding! he does actually get dressed for work.)

The Smaller Captor
Oliver started 3rd grade this year at a local international school. He seems do be doing well: reading lots, rocking some math, and only been pushed down the stairs once. He tries to be the funniest kid around, and is a natural-born big brother. We’re pretty sure the Tiniest Captor loves him more than she loves us.

The Tiniest Captor
Every day the Tiniest Captor learns how to do something new. It’s fun to watch her grow, though she can scream like a banshee. This one is a total DIVA. But, she’s cute, so it all works out in the end.

The Internal Captor
That’s right, we’re adding another one to the bunch. So far this one seems to like orange juice and milk, which are about the only two things I can eat without feeling crummy.

The Captor Hounds
We lost our boy husky Loki in June of this year, but we still have his life mate Kyah. She was lonely so we got her a friend, a merle Great Dane puppy named Zeke. It’s been almost 2 months and she hasn’t decided if she doesn’t hate him yet. (Read: some days she seems to like him; other days she wants to eat his face.)
