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!

Detox—Day 4,5,& 6

Day four was great.

Whoever said the first few days are the hardest was WRONG! My day 5 was really hard! I wanted to eat everything in sight. But I didn’t.

Day 6……oh day 6. I hate you day 6 (that’s today). I ate a chocolate chip today. I know….lame. NOTE TO SELF: Don’t go grocery shopping when you are detoxing. It sucks!!!


Because I barely scraped by on day 6, I have come to the conclusion I am done. No day 7 for me. I know, what’s one more day? But honestly, I cannot eat another raw vegetable for a long time. I can barely even look at them. But I have other reasons:


  • How will I cook fun green food for St. Patricks Day without eating it? There is no way I will be able to resist.
  • I have NO detox symptoms, which tells me my body is not doing anything. Which frustrates me to no end. I feel like I wasted the last 6 days. Why go another day for nothing?

So there. I am a quitter. But at least I made it 6 days. That’s pretty good right (considering I have never stuck to a diet plan in my life for any amount of time.)

FYI-I don't know if I lost any weight because I don't have a scale.

I am quitting today too! did you weigh yourself? Maybe you lost the weight, because I don't feel "detoxed" but the weight came off. I think six days is very admirable. Go us!

couldn't do it for 6 (well 5 1/2, if you ate that cookie you didn't make it the whole day) :-} But good for you? No results? nothing? well that sucks.

Kim said...

Bethany- I ate a chocolate chip....that hardly counts as a cookie ;).

Candace said...

No weight lost either? That would be my biggest disappointment. But 6 days??! That's still awesome you did it that long.
