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!

I had a birthday. Number 28. I have decided to embrace my age this year. I know I look like I am getting older, but I sure don't feel like it. The day before my birthday, someone told me I looked like I was 17. The braces probably had something to do with that one, but it made me feel a little better about turning a year older.

Brett & the girls bought me a Beach Cruiser bike. It's so cute. I also got a Barbie birthday cake from the girls :).
After Brett came home from school, we went out to dinner at a Japenese restaurant (where they cooked the food in front of us). It was yummy and it's always nice to spend time with just my husband where I don't have to worry about making sure my kids are climbing on the table or something. Two girls from Brett's class offered to babysit for us which was so nice of them.

And as you can see in the pictures......
I got my braces off!!!

Honestly, these last 7 months haven't been too terrible. My biggest issue was just that I didn't want any pictures taken of myself. My orthodontist was fantastic and I am so lucky that he was nice enough to offer me free braces. He did a great job on my teeth & I LOVE my smile :) I now get to wear a retainer day & night for 6 more months & then just nights for the rest of my life. I can handle that....I've always wanted a retainer (seriously).

What a great birthday!!

Your teeth look awesome!! Looks like you had a great birthday! Super cute bike.

Bethany said...

As always, you look great! I am jealous of your bike. I told Matt I wanted one and he just laughed and told me I was a nerd. You need to bring it to Florida and use it for what it is intended for ;)
