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 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!

Here's what's happening....

It's been a while since I gave a 'general update' on us so here it is:

It is officially Freezing here. I was thinking I could get away with light winter clothes, but that isn't going to be possible!!! We even had our first snow (but it only lasted about 5 minutes). Lately we have been around 40 with a small wind...THE CHILL FACTOR (yea, we have the 'chill factor out here in Indiana).

Brett is doing well in school. Well...I don't want to jinx him, but he is actually doing great!!! He is home around 4:00 almost everyday. Just so you all know how truly wonderful he is, even after a long day at school, he helps me around the house everyday, plays with the kids, helps get them ready for bed, etc. More than he ever use to.....Dental school is doing us good!!!

Quinnlyn is getting excited to visit 'home' for Christmas. She already sat on Santa's lap (a small victory this year since she has screamed in the past) and told him that she will be spending Christmas at Grandma's house. She keeps busy bossing all of us around. The girl has an attitude like you won't believe...just you wait and see when we come to St. George.

She got a halloween package in the mail from G'ma Hannig so she's pretty excited in this picture.

Avery is picking up Quinnlyn's attitude as well. She throws some really great tantrums but we think it's kind of funny. She's starting to put words together to make a sentence which is kind of fun.

And here they are licking the beaters.....mmmmmm!

I am doing well if anyone cares. The holiday season always makes me happy.
