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.

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!

7 Days Raw

I’m doing it! I am going on a 7 day Raw Foods diet. I found an excellent website called The Raw Divas that is going to get me through it.

I have to blog about it so everyone knows I am doing it. Otherwise I could easily quit (like everything else I try). So


Day 1-24 hour WATER FAST-

I did pretty well on this one. I started yesterday at 6:00 PM & finished at 6:00 this evening with a meal of Cantaloupe, an apple, some grape tomatoes, & a small handful of nuts. Technically, I was only suppose to choose 1 kind of fruit and eat as much as I wanted….but I wasn’t sure I could sit and eat a whole melon and that is it. The almonds weren’t planned, but I needed something substantial.

I started feeling the cravings when I sat and watched my family eat Mcdonald’s tonight. That was a little difficult. I really really want some carbs-----rolls, biscuits, crackers etc. but I’m not giving in. It’s not too terrible yet.

It is said that whenever I am craving something, it means that type of food is being ‘detoxed’ out of my body. So maybe, just maybe I am getting rid of all those carbs!!??

The next 6 days I will just be eating raw food. Raw meaning Fruits & Veggies that haven’t been cooked. I get to eat as much as I want but only when I am truly hungry. Also I am to limit any fats (oils, avocados, and yes….Nuts Winking smile) but preferably none at all. My fridge is full of Fruits and Veggies and I am excited.

Here goes…

no breads, grains or rice? Wow, that'd be hard. Good luck, let us know how the end result goes.

So why are you doing this??? Good luck!

Good luck . . . and why are you doing this? No carbs would put be over the edge and I think my family would suffer ;-)
