Easton

Easton
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

Ainslee
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!!

Avery

Avery
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 Dylan

Kobe Dylan
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.

Quinnlyn
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!

He went on a trip

Thanks to some amazing people who donated money, Brett was able to go on a Service Learning Trip to Ecuador! Even though he was gone over our anniversary (and his Spring Break) we decided it wasn’t an opportunity to pass up----so I sucked it up and let him go Winking smile.

I was dreading the ten days that he would be gone. Most wives either visited home, or had visitors come out….but I wasn’t lucky enough for that. It was just me and the 3 kids. The girls were so sad to see Daddy go….I’m not sure Avery understood that he would be coming back….and Quinnlyn cried.

So Friday March 11, 2011 was the dreaded day. We drove Brett to the airport at 8:15 am and he was to fly out around ten. Their flight plan was to fly from Indy to Chicago, IL-----Chicago, IL to Miami, FL----Miami, FL to Quito, Ecuador. UNFORTUNATELY, American Airlines (who, consequently, we will never8-10 ecuador fly with) canceled their first flight about 5 minutes before they were to depart….due to mechanical issues. Initially, AA wasn’t giving them any options for other flights. After a long day and a supervisor later, they split the group in half and booked flights for the next day. Brett’s group flew from Indy to Houston, TX, had an 8 hour layover, and then flew to Quito, Ecuador. The picture is where they were at 8:15pm.

I can’t speak for Brett, but I think he had a great time! This is the first time the students were able to do dental work without having to pass every procedure off to a professor. They were real dentists for a week Winking smile.

  

 Enjoy lots of

nights so that was nice, but are happy to have him back.
