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!

Check this out!

I found out about this Meijer deal from my friend Clenece. I couldn't pass this one up! So here is what I was able to get:

Round one:

43 Hand Soaps
5pks Personal Wipes
10 Dental Floss
6pks Band-Aids
28 ToothBrushes
2pks Cotton Balls

I spent $8.24 and had an $8.00 coupon leftover.

So since this deal was so amazing, I had to go back. I left Brett home with the girls and headed to a different Meijer. Here's round two:

16 Hand Soaps
5 Toothbrushes
6 Chapsticks
10pks Cotton Balls
1 Dove Cream Oil Body Wash
1 Dishwashing soap
1 Dawn Foam Refill
1 Oxyclean Laundry spray

I spent $1.03 on this shopping trip and still have an $8.00 Coupon left.
I had to come home because Brett had to go play basketball...otherwise I would probably have a whole lot more stuff. Maybe tomorrow huh?

And, as if the day couldn't get any better, I am about to watch Grey's and Private Practice. What a great Thursday. Anyone need a toothbrush?


Jamie G. said... have got to teach me!! I've seen your other post about doing this, and it just blows me away. I have tried and tried to figure out the whole "couponing" thing, but must be way to dense for it! That is awesome!!

Bethany said...

Seriously! Where do you find all of your coupons? I try to follow Clanece's blog but I guess I am not "coupon savvy." I wish we had a Meijer's here. You can never have too much soap . . .

Danielle said...

kara and I have decided that you should probably teach a thing or two about couponing. Chuck e Cheese's was so fun haha! Quinnie will love it!

Lindsey said...

holy cow! That is amazing!

Anonymous said...

I really need to start using coupons!

Clenece said...

You did AWESOME!! Guess what I just found out...this deal doesn't expire until the 11th...that is if they don't catch the mistake and stop it. LOL..Great finds. I am going back tonight or tomorrow morning!

I can't believe how great that is! I thought I knew how to find a bargain when I got a pair of jeans for $7... but there is so much I don't know! And it doesn't help that this store you are speaking of is nowhere near me! Nice work!

Kim - Looks like a lot of fun...

You are so sweet! If anyone knows what it's like to be without family around it's you! You handle it well though! I hope you're doing good, I think about you a lot and hope your great! . . . Seriously will you please give me a lesson on all these great shopping things you do!! I hate to spend $ when I can be saving! I just spent like $70 bucks at Walmart for hardly nothing!!! AHHH drives me crazy!
