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.

Quinnlyn

Quinnlyn
Quinnie just turned 6! She is growing faster than we can keep up with! She loves going to first grade and is doing really well! She picks up on things very quickly and LOVES learning. 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!

Our happenings...

Quinnlyn bore her testimony yesterday at church. All by herself!!! She didn't hesitate at all and knew exactly what she wanted to say (we didn't help her one bit). Maybe we are doing something right as parents after all. We are so proud of her.

Here is the DENTAL STUDENT coming home from a long day. I think he looks super cute in his scrubs. I suppose he is enjoying school as much as he can. He had his first couple of tests this last week and hopefully they went well.

On Thursday the girls and I went to the zoo with some people from our ward. We didn't get around to seeing much, but we witnessed a monkey fight, an elephant bath, and a dolphin show. The girls had fun playing in the splash pad too. We will definatley have to go back sometime.



Last Saturday we went to the Marion County Fair. It is just down the street from our house. The girls had fun riding rides, and we splurged on cotton candy and lemonade (they make a fortune there!!)



Lets see, what else happened this last week? We spent $500 dollars on a new radiator for our car (such a bummer). We mowed the lawn (I never thought I would get satisfaction out of a mowed lawn, but I do...I must be growing up). Avery was sick for about the whole week...diarrhea, some throwing up, ornery, and she seriously didn't eat for 4 whole days...I wonder how much weight she lost. Luckily she was drinking fine. And, she is seeming to be better so that is good. I got to take a break from mommmy-time and hang out with a bunch of dental wives. We had a little pot-luck dinner and then went to an outdoor 'oldie' movie. Very fun!
And that is our week in a nutshell. We are doing well...our house is beginning to feel like home. Things are good.

Kennedy wanted to bear her testimony as well--though I don't think she really knew what it would mean once she got Matt up to the pulpit. Wish we were closer to you guys.

That is pretty cute about Quinnlyn and her testimony. I think it shows a whole bunch of the kinda parents you are.
