Easton

Easton
Easton is the cutest little boy we know! He rightfully earned the nickname 'BEASTY' when he was a baby and it has stuck with him. He is such a sweet little mommy's boy and we are ALL at his Beck and call. Easton loves cars, snacks, and playing outside. He is talking up a storm and it seems like he learns something new every single day. He is at such a fun age. We LOVE LOVE LOVE this little guy!

Ainslee

Ainslee
Ainslee is the baby and she just turned ONE!! This child is a handful!!! She hasn't quite grown out of the difficult phase.....that she has been in since she was born, but we still find ways to find her sweet side! Hearing her baby giggles and watching her discover & learn new things make all the whininess......just a little easier to deal with. Aaaahhh, we love this Ainslee Girl!!

Avery

Avery
Oh our cute little Avery! With her blue eyes & blonde hair, she is one of the cutest 4 year olds around!! This girl is stubborn! She definitely keeps us on our toes. She is quite unpredictable, which makes for a lot of laughs! Avery is our TREAT-FREAK! We can always guess what is on her mind. My favorite thing about Avery is her smiles. She always has one for us no matter what and that makes everyones day just a little better. She attends preschool and says she doesn't like it, but secretly we know she does ;). We are so lucky to have this cute girl in our family! We can't get enough of her.

Kobe Dylan

Kobe is our first child, born in 2004. He was 4 months early and weighed a whopping 1 lb. 4 oz.! We got to be with Kobe for 4 wonderful weeks. I feel so blessed to have been chosen to raise one of God's perfect children. We love him and thank Heavenly Father everyday that he is part of our family. We have a treasure in heaven.

$25 dollars richer!!


Yes, I finally did it! I went and donated plasma. I took a picture of the needle so you could all see the torture I went through.Let me tell you...it hurt soooooooo bad! It was all I could do not to cry. I was shaking before I even sat in the chair. Then they pulled the needle out and I wanted to leave right then. It was huge!!! I have seen my fair share of needles (with my high-risk pregnancies) and this one takes the cake. How they even get that into a tiny vein, I don't know. Anyway, Yes I am $25 dollars richer but scared out of my mind. And I have a nice bruise to remind of the terrifying experience. Okay...I am making it sound a little worse than it was...okay so a lot worse than it was. It was actually, dare I say, wonderful. I really was shaking, but it wasn't any worse than getting blood drawn. I usually do pretty well with needles but I psych myself out too much thinking I am going to die. That really isn't the needle they use...it is certainly not that big. So, I had a great experience...it may have been luck my first time, but I am scheduled to go again on thursday and so we will see. If anyone decides to go, tell them that I referred you. (You'll have to use my full name Kimberly) And I recommend that you go.

yuck! I can't believe you did that? I cant get myself to volunteerily get pricked... But I have heard of a lot of ppl doing this. Good way to earn a little extra cash, if you can handle the pain.

You made it! Great job, I am so proud! Do you get anything cool in return for refering other people? That would be nice if you did!

Ya, I hope someone says you refered you so you can make even more! My hubby had done it maybe 6 times... Once or twice he got paid w/o actually donating because they couldn't ever find the vein, but his arm was black and blue for like 2 weeks after that happened, so even though he got the money w/o donating, it wasn't like he got out of anything!!! I bet you wouldn't be a problem though because you can probably see your veins much better than his because you are so skinny!!! Good job on donating! I'm not sure if I would or not, if I weren't pregnant... oh, and I was going to tell you, I have gotten two shots so far and they haven't been bad at all. Both times the nurses were really careful and the first did it really slowly, but the second did it faster and it actually hurt less! Both times it felt like a bruise for a couple days after, but I guess that's not so bad. I'm sure it's worth it! (oh, and they used really small needles, so I didn't actually feel much more than a little prick.)
