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!

The cutest 6

year oLD in


I just love this picture of Quinnlyn. It’s not great quality because I cropped her out of a big group picture, but she looks so happy!

The birthday began with presents from mom & dad (Heely’s, a princess castle, clothes, & a new Leapster Explorer game) & Avery (princess shoes). Next was a trip to Mcdonald’s (where else) for the traditional birthday breakfast. Then Mom brought treats (fruit kabobs with fruit dip, & heart suckers) to her kindergarten class.

Today we had her party. She invited some girls from school (Riley, Samantha, & Chloe) some from church( Maylee, Marina, & Cami), the neighbor girl (Anika), her cousins (Mckenna & Gracie) & one little sister (Avery).

We played games, made gumball necklaces, ate lunch, played more games, opened gifts, ate cupcakes & ice cream, & filled candy bags from the ‘Sweet Shoppe’.

I can’t believe Quinnlyn is six! Where does time go? Is this really my dark-haired baby girl who all the nurses oohed & awed over (not to mention her mom & dad)!!?? I remember just crying & crying when she was born because I was SO happy that she was healthy. I loved her so much then, & I LOVE her so much now!

Quinnlyn is:

  • Sweet (when she wants to be)
  • Silly (all the time)
  • Spunky
  • Smart (loves to learn)
  • Creative
  • Artistic (we have piles & piles of artwork)
  • Independent
  • Sassy (as in…..talks back)
  • Shy (around other people)

She loves:

  • Her sister & brother
  • Writing letters to her friends & family (she started a letter/artwork exchanging trend among her kindergarten class)
  • Dressing up (in one particular Arial dress)
  • Watching movies & TV
  • Playing her Leapster Explorer
  • Riding her bike
  • Dancing
  • Her Ducky

She hates:

  • Cleaning her room (or cleaning anything for that matter)
  • Bedtime
  • Getting her hair done (I knew the day would come)
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Corn off the cob (on the cob is fine)

Happy Birthday
