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!

Speaking of......

... TORNADO SEASON (at the end of my last post)......

It's here.

It had it's debut last night at about 9:00.

There we were, sitting at a BBQ with a bunch of dental student friends, celebrating our husbands making it through first year. The weather was actually quite perfect with overcast skies & a tiny breeze. Well, all of the sudden the tornado sirens start BLARING!!!

And nobody moves....

I am pretty much the only one freaking out (mildly) trying to locate my kids and get them inside. Poor Quinnlyn has heard me talking about my fear of the dreaded TORNADO so she has also picked up the fear. She came into me with the sweetest (terrified) face and said:
"MOM! The tornado is coming. What are we going to do?" Poor thing.

And then Avery is walking around with a funny & fake frantic voice say: "A TORMADO is coming!" (Yes, TORMADO with an 'M')

Want to know the funny thing....and by funny I mean NOT FUNNY AT ALL! We had two options....stay at our friends house on the Northwest side of Indy, where the storm pretty much was....or drive to our house on the Southeast side where the storm was pretty much HEADING. Nice huh?
So we decided to head home before the predicted golf ball size hail started falling. About 5 minutes away from our house, the rain started


& we had a lightening strike right in front of our car (or so it looked). But, we did make it home....and about and hour later, the storm was over. So I didn't end up having to clear out my tornado closet, a tornado never actually touched ground, and we all slept peacefully. But hmmmmmm.....this bipolar Indiana weather may just cause my insanity!!!
