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!

I can't believe I have a 5 year old. Has it really been that long????? Quinnie has been counting down her birthday for a couple of months now. She's been so excited to turn 5! A few days before she reminded me to buy her balloons & put up the 'birthday stuff' (decorations) and make her cake. She got a birthday package in the mail last week & I wouldn't let her open it she sat down on the couch and just looked at it & said "I just can't wait to open my presents". Hopefully it was a good day for her.

It started the day before at Chuck-e-Cheese....because that will ALWAYS be the place my kids choose to eat for their birthday dinner. Not that I mind. I am a fan of their salad bar and their pizza is pretty good as well. The girls got to play games of course and waste money/tickets on little prizes that I could buy at the dollar store. But it's fun to watch them so I guess it's all worth it.

We usually ALL go to breakfast for birthdays, but since Brett had school he & Quinnie were the only ones who woke up at 5:45 am (yes that's correct) and headed to Mcdonald's. Crazy husband I have.

My sister & her kids drove up in the afternoon to have a little party. It was nice for Quinnie to have a bunch of cousins to celebrate with her. We just hung out, ate pizza, opened presents, and then ate cake & ice cream.

She requested a princess this is as princess as it got. I think she loved she was BEGGING all day long to take the crown off so she could wear it. It's a shame though to spend so much time on a cake & then cut into it soon after :(. Oh well.

Now Quinnlyn is spending the weekend at my sisters house. She was very excited to go. Thanks to everyone who wished Quinnie a happy birthday, sent cards, & gave her presents. HAPPY BIRTHDAY QUINNLYN!!!!
