Daniel and I started Wilber Huset back in 2013 as a way to quickly compile photos as a sort of keepsake for our growing family and to be shared amongst our closest family and friends. Although the outreach has grown some, we still see this as a place of sharing our family’s day-to-day life with whomever wishes to be here! And as for the name, huset (who-set) is the Norwegian word for “house”. We could have just named this “Wilber House”, but that’s just not as cool, right?
We are Catholic converts and were welcomed into the Catholic Church in 2014.
We’re raising 4 kids in southern California and after moving 8 TIMES since we’ve been married, we have no desire to leave the golden state again.
Hi, I’m Jenna! Before becoming a stay at home mama, I graduated from UCLA with a degree in Geography and minor in Scandinavian. I worked as a behavioral therapist with special needs children and then as a preschool teaching assistant. I love watching crappy TV, eating treats, re-reading Harry Potter, planning vacations, making sappy home videos, and taking too many photos.
Daniel is the best. Funniest, wittiest, most hard working person I know. He works as a web developer and designer at his company, Bondfire Inc. When he’s not making fun of my crappy TV shows, he’s munching on sunflower seeds, reading, interneting, building websites, and listening to my incessant pleas that if he just gave The Bachelor a chance, he would really enjoy it.
Oliver is 7 and that kind of breaks my heart. He is always up for cuddles, has the memory of an elephant, and a sweet tooth that rivals my own. When he’s not busy being the smartest 7 year old, he’s reorganizing his Pokemon card collection, plowing though a new book, or writing a book of his own.
Wildly independent Atlas somehow is 5 years old. He is ambitious, charming, fickle, adventurous, somehow very serious and also just so funny. His favorite things are legos, being silly with Ollie, legos, making Felix laugh, and legos. He is constantly surprising us and it’s the best.
My dreamy Primrose has turned into this sweet and sour 4 year old. The most generous and giving little girl and always has a stream of tears ready to be released at any moment, especially if her brothers are around. She loves sucking her thumb, cuddling Poppy and Luna (our dog and cat), playing family where she bosses everyone around, and anything cute and girly.
Felix is 1 and everyone loves him. He is such a mix of the other 3 but completely his own. He is goofy and shy and loves animals and is just the best. He enjoys yelling “DADADADA” during Mass, but calling everything else “cat”, clapping on demand, and not giving anyone except Luna kisses.
