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 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!!


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.

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!

Since my last UPDATE...

....not much has gone on! The weather has gotten chilly...and the leaves have fallen off my tree. I don't think it is going to warm back up anymore...and I don't have a very decent winter wardrobe.

So basically, we are about the same, but colder! Brett is enjoying school and is doing really well! I just have to tell you again how lucky I am that he doesn't have to study 24/7. It really makes things bearable here...and when I say bearable, I mean enjoyable. I do like it here (but rest assured Grandma's & Grandpa' the end of dental school we WILL be moving much closer to home).

She's her old crazy self. She has a sty in her eye (nice rhyme) that has been there for 4 months! So, her biggest adventure coming up is to go to an eye specialist and get it 'sliced' open so it can drain. She says 'No! I don't want them to cut my eye out!' Poor thing. Other than that she is doing well! She loves going to her preschool and she is starting to write everyone's name. She'll sit down at the table and ask: "Mom how do you spell Grandma's name?" and we go through all the relatives names until there's no one's kind of fun.

I can't believe how old she seems! Certainly not like a 17 month old. I don't know...maybe I just don't remember. Her new words (for those of you who's mostly for journaling) are: swing, slide, bum, buckle, down, toes, garbage, popped, flower, freezing, wipe, 'What's that', & done (some of those I may have already listed last time). And, I think she is almost ready to potty train. It seems too early, but she really hates having a dirty diaper. The minute it's stinky, she will stop everything and want it changed...and she even tells us before she is going to go, but she won't go on the potty. We'll see if I feel like dealing with that anytime soon. It may be best to wait until after X-mas when all the traveling is through. Lastly, I am really excited for her to start nursery...especially since Brett just got a calling and now both of us have one.

And these are the only pictures I have taken for a few weeks so 'take what you get' I guess. I didn't feel like pulling the new car out of the garage so maybe next time.

Mckenna is here looking at your blog with me so she can see pictures of Quinnie. She saw a picture of Kobe and has asked me 20 questions about it...she is so concerned about him! She didn't know Quinnie had a brother too!
