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 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.

She's seriously a sponge. Her favorite thing to do is write notes and draw pictures for her friends & family. You should see our continual stack of papers. Quinnlyn is creative & spunky & totally independant. We love her like crazy!

$50 bucks for a Hematoma...I'll take it

So, my second time donating plasma didn't go as well as the first. They stuck the needle in my left arm vein and all seemed to be well. I went through a couple of cycles where the blood goes out and seperates from the plasma and then the blood goes back in. Well, apparently my needle wasn't in correctly and when the blood was going back in, it wasn't going into my vein...just pooling under my skin. Fun huh? So they took the needle out and stuck it in my right arm. All was well after that except now I have a hematoma (not as scary as it sounds). I will have a bruise but really it wasn't too bad. And, I got a whopping $50 bucks for sitting there for an hour...and letting them torture me a little. Now, what should I spend it on?

On a different note. If anyone knows anyone who lives in Indianapolis, IN or near there, I desperatley need them. I want to find out what area's are good to live in...i don't want any junkie neighbors. So if you have a friend who knows a friend (and so on) help me out could ya?

$50 bucks an hour....yeah I could handle that!

That's nice they gave you $50. That was just for the one time, or $50 since you have done it twice? Anyway, sounds like it wasn't the most pleasant experience, so you should definitely spend it on yourself!!!

Ouch- your crazy! Well that is actually really good money. But I still don't know if I would dare to do it, does it hurt worse then giving blood? Because I don't think that is bad at all.

I was just going to say about my shots... The first two times the shot didn't hurt at all, but after it felt a little tender, but I haven't felt like there was a lump in there or anything, but this last shot hurt when she did it because she put it in and then she pulled it out some and that hurt!!! I don't know what she was doing but when she moved it I could feel it and now it does feel like that side is bruised, but the others didn't feel like this! I'm just glad I only have to get these once a week!!! At least this way I have some time to recover so both sides don't feel like I can't sleep on them!

Hey, that's nice of you to come over tomorrow! 1:00 would normally work, but Aaralyn has a doctor's appt. tomorrow at 2:40 to get her splint off, so I was thinking I would put her down for a nap at 12:30 so she won't be too grumpy. Do you think you could come over at like 11:30 and the girls could play and then we could have lunch over here? Let me know if this will work, if not we could always do it another day or whatever would work for you! Thanks again!
