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!

Day2-Raw Food Detox

Today was harder than yesterday.

Surprisingly, I woke up not hungry. Later for breakfast I had a GREEN SMOOTHIE with a bunch of spinach, strawberries, peaches, 1/2 a banana, water & ice. That was my best meal of the day. Not because it was amazing (although it was good & made me full), but because my other meals just weren’t great.

For lunch I cut up a bunch of veggies and wrapped them in lettuce. I used cauliflower, zucchini, a radish, carrots, tomatoes, garlic, & pepper. I also added some apples which made it much better.

Here is my ‘Veggie lettuce wrap’


Dinner was totally gross. I cut yellow squash & zucchini into thin strips (like spaghetti noodles) and put a puree of tomatoes, garlic, pepper & avocado. I couldn’t get myself to eat it all, so I dumped it and ate some cantaloupe.

I am not looking forward to the next 5 days. Meal time is not enticing AT ALL! I am still craving carbs, but it’s only REALLY difficult when I make the girls their meals. I am not hungry, but I am totally unsatisfied.

Why am I doing this?

  • My friend talked me into it
  • I might lose a few pounds
  • I might feel great & less tired
  • It might reduce my sugar addiction

Will I stay on a raw food diet? No way. I already miss warm, cooked food.

I made me some Raw Banana ‘Ice cream’ with walnuts & strawberries for dessert and it was wonderful!! A great end to my so-so day (in the way of food).
