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!

Where does the time go?????? SERIOUSLY!!!! It seems like a few months ago that Brett was attending his White Coat ceremony & starting Dental school. Now he is officially through his first year! Yep...I am now the proud wife of a 2nd year Dental student! He took his last final today & summer has BEGUN!!!!! I don't know how it was for him, but 1st year was a BREEZE for me. Much better than I expected. Now we have 5 weeks to play & enjoy this time off....because the next 2 summer breaks won't be much of a break. Congrats to my husband and all our dental student friends (and their families) for making it through year #1.

And if that wasn't good enough, my family flies in in a few short hours! We are all very excited. The girls woke up today a little too 'giddy' for their own good I think. Avery just couldn't control her excitement! We have a few fun things planned for them including a tour of downtown Indy (like it's exciting or something), strawberry picking (followed by some freezer jam making), shopping, picnics, & a girls pedicure day. I may go a little crazy with so many people in my small house, but it will definitely be a GOOD crazy :)!!!!

Now onto a few updates (as if you care). My headaches are dwindling I think. I discovered that the trick to keep them away is to chew gum. Now I am afraid to NOT chew gum. A headache can sure make for an ornery KIM. And other good news is that Brett's back is getting better....slowly but surely. This may be too much info for you all, but last week, for 5 days, he had blood in his urine & that sort of freaked us both out. But, it cleared up last friday (thank goodness!). We think it may have been caused by the chiropractor pushing on him too hard when he went to get aligned, but we don't know for sure.

Anyway, that's all for us.....for now!
