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 countdown begins.....

My family is coming to visit us in less than 3 weeks (no, not everyone in the pictures will be coming...just my parents & 3 of my little sisters). I'm pretty excited. We are definitely going to have a FULL HOUSE...9 people in a 3 bedroom house is going to be a very tight fit. But it's going to be super fun! To tell you the truth, I am a little surprised that they are actually coming. I wasn't sure I could drag them out here. I'm glad they love me enough to visit (or atleast they love Quinnlyn & Avery. I think that is the real reason they are coming). So they are staying for a week and then my little sister Whitney is going to stay for a month. We plan on doing a lot of fun (inexpensive) things this summer & it will be fun to have her along.

My other news is that my older sister & her family are moving to Indiana. They aren't exactly sure where in Indiana, but most likely it will be about an hour or so away from us. That is good news for me. I have gotten use to being out here without any family, but it will be fun to have someone close enough that we can spend holidays & birthdays with. I am very excited. They should be here sometime in August.

I LOVE that jumping picture!! I just may have to steal that idea. I love it when family comes to visit, and I also believe that it's just to see my kids, but I still love it! Oh, and hey...we have 7 people in our 3 bedroom all the time...they'll just be glad to be there! Remind me to tell you about this wetland preserve that has beavers and is just nice to walk around it's free!!

That is so awesome! I bet you are thrilled. I hope my family comes to visit me often (it won't be as hard in California). And your sister moving close, that's so fun!

That is very exciting news Kim! It's always fun to get visiters, especially family. I'm excited for ya. I have that same exact kitchen and all. I love it!

I love your family pictures! How fun! Just an idea, there is Brown County State Park which is beautiful. There are trails for short hikes (more like walks) and it is beautiful just to drive around in. Have fun with your family here!

Kim, you had commented on my blog about my friend Kari and her baby Bree about doing a professional photoshoot. That was an excellent idea. They had actually had one done 2 months ago (there is a group of professional photographers who do it for free for families with kids who are going through something like this). And a family friend made them some awesome frames.

I am so sorry for the loss of your son. I know it was awhile ago, but I'm sure it must still be hard. You seem like a really neat person.

I also wanted to say that I love this family picture of everyone jumping in the air. My mom had each of her kids do the "Toyota jump" with their spouse on their wedding day for a picture. But I've never seen it with such a huge group. That is so fun!

Anyways, thank you again for sharing, and take care.
