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!

Just something weird

What is it about a bed that my girls don't like? They certainly don't take after me....because I love nothing more than to snuggle in my bed & fall asleep! Quinnlyn has some weird sleeping habits. Not only does she not fall asleep during her naps, but it takes her at least 1-2 hours to fall asleep at bedtime. She also insists on sleeping 'shortways' on the bed. She will prop her pillow up against her window & spread one blanket over her & that is how she will spend the night.

When she feels like mixing it up, she will climb under her bed with her blanket & stuffed animals & fall asleep there. Or she might set up camp right next to her bedroom door. In fact, that is how she slept the past week or so. She's such an odd child.

Avery has been known to do some weird things as well. Besides the fact that she refuses to stay in bed the first time we put her in there, she will also only use ONE blanket. I don't even make her bed, because it's pretty pointless. All she needs is a blanket, pillow, 500 stuffed animals, 5 books, & a drink.

This morning (at about 3:00 a.m) I found her at the stair landing sleeping. Who knows how long she had been there. If she's not in her bed when I check on her, it's a safe bet that she worked her way down to Brett (who yes, still sleeps on the couch with his weird sleeping habits)...but not last night. She must've figured out that if she made it all the way downstairs, she would be taken back to bed. Well I took her back to bed anyway...but it was pretty cute to see her curled up in such a random place.

So my kids don't get there sleeping habits from me. Obviously it's Brett who they get their 'randomness' from. I, on the other hand, refuse to sleep anywhere but my warm comfy bed (if I can help it).

CRAZY kids! lol. McKenna use to sleep under her bed when we first switched her to the toddler bed...but since then no problems.

That's hilarious. At least you can blame Brett. I blame Mike for everything "weird" that our kids do. Like today, my husband was eating a sugar cookie at 6:00 AM. Yes, that is totally something Ammon would do (and does). They both have a major sweet tooth. My kids always sleep on their beds though, but believe me they do other odd things. Gotta love 'em!

It is Brett! Blame him. You've heard the random stories of him sleeping, haven't you? Like fully dressed--shoes, coat and all? On the floor because he had clean clothes on his bed? And many more . . .
Glad to hear though, that my girls aren't the only ones who take forever to fall asleep at night; and Kennedy hasn't napped for 2 years now.
