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.

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!

8 is GREAT!

Yesterday we celebrated Kobe's 8th birthday. We just did the usual....blew out candles on a cake and ENJOYED ;) I remember the first few years after his death that I felt like I had to do something big & special or else I would be a bad mother. Is it weird that I don't feel like that anymore. I mean....I know where he is and I know he is doing great things and he is certainly not worried about wether or not we have a big celebration for him. So am I a bad mother??

I just can't believe it's been 8 years. Kobe would be getting baptised this year...a milestone that I should be sad to miss right? But I have a silver lining. My son is already perfect. That gives me joy.

There were a few really difficult months that I wondered how I would ever move on...but I did. Does it mean I forgot? Certainly not. But it's not a tragedy anymore, his life was & is a miracle that I am really grateful for! How often do you get to see God perform such a huge miracle as Kobe was? We are so blessed!!

Happy Birthday Kobe!!!

You are an AMAZING mother, and you are absolutely right. You have great faith and that's what Kobe wants. He wants to know you will all make it back to him. Happy 8th Birthday Kobe!
