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!

Our Halloween

We had a fun Halloween this year. It started out with our annual Halloween party with the LDS dental students (2nd year). It's so fun having an excuse to dress up as an adult :). There were some great costumes (but I didn't get any pics) this year including Batman & Joker, a Gothic Couple, the Swine Flu, & more. Brett & I dressed up as JUNO & BLEEKER which was super easy! All we had to do was stuff my shirt & make a stop at goodwill for Brett's outfit:

We didn't quite get the picture right, but you get the idea.

We played some fun games & ate yummy food & just visited. We are so blessed to be out here in Indianapolis with some great people! I love that we get together often. It keeps me sane ;).

The girls were so excited to dress up this year. Aren't they the cutest WITCHES you have ever seen?

I intended for their costumes to be simple as well, but it took a little more work than expected (and a whole lot of Tulle). But the end result was worth it.

Here we all are.

Our second Halloween adventure was our ward TRUNK-or-TREAT....which turned into an inside party at the church (and I was so glad). We usually have it at a family's house in our ward. They have a fire pit & we roast hot dogs. But last year we seriously FROZE our butts off, & this year was pretty cold & rainy so it got moved to the church. We all dressed up for this one as well, but most people in our ward had no idea who Brett & I were suppose to be. Some people got it, but most people just thought I was suppose to be a pregnant women & Brett was just a weirdo dressed in short shorts.

The girls got VAMPIRE TEETH along with one of their treats & they couldn't get enough of them.

Then of course we went TRICK-or-TREATING the following evening. It was really cold & Avery kept saying "MY FACE IS FREEZING!!!". But we suffered through it and made it around our neighborhood. I didn't dress up for this one, but Brett did. The funny thing is that EVERYONE knew exactly who he was suppose to be. They thought is was hilarious. We could hear people talking about it as we passed them.

(We put beanies on under the witch hats, but the witch hat kept blowing off as they we gave up on them)

So those were our Halloween adventures. Hope everyone had as much fun as we did this year!!!

The girls costumes are adorable. And I love yours and Brett's. Brett looks awesome, though I am so glad the short shorts are out of style.
