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!

The birthday....

This will be sent to G & G's in a couple of days with thank-you notes

We managed to give Quinnie a fun birthday even though it was weird not sharing it with all of our family. Here is what went on: We took her to breakfast at Mcdonalds (where else would she want to go?) the day before since Brett had school on her actual birthday. On her birthday, we took her to Chucke Cheese where we ate Pizza and played games and just had fun. Later that night we had some people over to have cake and ice cream and open presents. I think she had a fun day, but I guess you would have to ask her that! She got a little spoiled (Thanks to everyone who gave her a gift) and loved getting cards & gifts sent to her in the mail. Here are a few pics of the day (notice the fake, goofy smile in all the pictures....I just can't get her to smile for real):

THE CAKE. I spent some time on this was strawberry (because the cake had to be pink) with marshmallow fondant (which is not yucky like regular fondant). I am excited to know how to do fondant now!




THE PEOPLE (some of our family away from family.....Quinnlyn & Avery love
all these guys! Thanks for coming people)

THE BIRTHDAY CLOTHES (G&G Jones, you bought the one in the middle and on the right)


Thank you for the gifts, the cards, money, and the phone calls she loved them all! HAPPY BIRTHDAY QUINNIE!

Looks like she had a great time. I know she was really excited yesterday telling everyone she was four now! That dress does look just like Haley's, but with the short sleeves, that is pretty cool. You did a great job on the cake! We just recently learned to do fondount as well, you'll have to tell me your recipe!

Happy Birthday Quinnie!

Happy Birthday Quinnie!

Great job on the cake! It looks cute! My sister and I made the marshmallow fondant on my mom's birthday cake and it wasn't too bad! I'll have to try it on my own sometime!

Rach said...
