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!

A special day for our family

It's Kobe's birthday today. It's seriously hard to believe that it has been 6 years since I had him! I am so glad I can look back on his life with much more joy than tears (in fact, there have not been a whole lot of tears for a few years). He taught us so much in the short 26 days that he was on this earth. I had experiences that are really special to much so that I don't share a lot of them because there is no way to express the emotions & spirituality that was involved. Kobe is such a special part of our family & we are so grateful that the Lord saw us fit to be his parents. Would I change things? I'm not sure. I know most of you can't imagine losing a child (nor can I), but I am 100% positive that this is the way it's suppose to be. Maybe we all agreed to this before we came to earth? I'm just glad that I have the perspective that I do. Such a great life to celebrate. WE LOVE OUR KOBE!

we love little Kobe too . . . and I sometimes think that maybe he's spirit wasn't so little and that is why he only needed to be on earth such a short time. I am grateful still today that I got to meet my first nephew. We love all of you and thinking of you today.

Happy B-day Kobe! It is so awesome to know that we will all get to see him again someday. He must be one amazing person not to have to endure the trials of this life and you two are amazing people because you get to have him in your family. He could only come to one of the best!

Nice that you celebrate his birthday every year. I'd probably just be balling the whole day. Hope all is well with you, let me know if there's ever something I can do for you!
