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!

Where we are....

What is going on with the Joneses?


He finished his 3rd year of Dental school on June 16th. We are officially on the count down & it is hard to believe. He works with patients everyday now, & will begin a one-week externship in St. George, working in his Cousin. Unfortunately, the rest of us don’t get to go with him….unless someone can loan us a thousand bucks (just shoot me an email). '

He is still serving as Young Men’s president & I’m sure he will hold that calling until we move.


…..I feel so boring…..I have nothing to say about myself. I bathe the kids, feed the kids, entertain the kids, check my email, write product reviews, feed the kids (and the husband), and sleep. Don’t worry, it isn’t as bad as it sounds. In fact, I feel pretty lucky that I get to lounge around playing outside with the kids instead of sitting in an office. I really do have the best ‘job’. I was released from my primary calling a few months ago & now I teach Relief Society….and so far I really enjoy it.


Is looking forward to 1st grade (and so am I!!). Her & Avery play together all day….and they also fight together all day. They spend most of their time outside. Remember those days where you wore your swimsuit more than actual clothes? Well they are living those days. I love watching them make fun summer memories.

Quinnie is starting to get bugged by things Avery does or says (even though it’s not really bothering her physically). She is often saying “AVERY!! That is bugging me….you’re bugging me, you’re bugging me, you’re bugging me”. I love being a referee. She LOVES Beasty & is always playing with him.


Still the treat queen. Lies through her teeth. Unconsciously sucks her thumb at night (luckily she has no desire to do it during the day). Is patiently waiting for her hair to grow longer. Teases Quinnlyn mercilessly. Still has to be forced to wear something other than dresses/skirts. Takes an afternoon nap. WHINER.


Still a fantastic sleeper. Loves his blanket & always looks for the corner to rub on his face. Takes a binky at night…..and sometimes during the day (I know. I know. But sometimes it’s more for me than him). Is my PICKIEST eater. Still weighs 20 pounds (because he is a picky eater). Is getting taller. Hair is getting blonder….and of course, longer. Loves dancing to loud music. Says ‘Hi’ to everyone. Finally gives kisses. Rarely gives hugs. Knows that shoes means we are going ‘bye-bye’. LOVES animals & follows the neighborhood cats around. Loves being outside. Gets a lot of attention from the rest of us. Drinks Lactose-free milk. Had 2 fevers in 2 weeks….one because of Strep throat, the other unkown. ‘Talks’ (it sounds like ‘Gobbling’) more than any baby I have know…..and seems to know exactly what he is saying. Ends most of his ‘sentences’ (gobbling) with ‘Huh?’. Fake cries all the time. Loves playing with cars. Loves pushing things….like the grocery cart or stroller.

New words he says-

  • Pinata
  • Cookie (Koo-Kee)
  • Hot
  • Freezing
  • Outside (side)
  • Pop

And that is that!!

Is it just me, or is pinata a random word for a 1 year old to have mastered?

Jenalee- It's great isn't it? The girls have an Xbox game called Viva Pinata & Easton LOVES dancing with the song and he gets all excited saying 'Pinata'.....of course it is mostly just syllables but that is ok right?
