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!

In the past few weeks......

We drove almost 60 hours from Indianapolis to Utah and back again....
The kids were pretty amazing. Easton had a rough time sleeping in his car seat, but I expected much worse. We drove a night and a day, stayed in a hotel, and then drove the rest of the 10 hours (times two).

We hit up a few holiday family parties

We surprised Brett's family by showing up at the Ence family Christmas Eve party

We got to spend Christmas with our family's (X-mas 2008 was the last time we got to do that)

Most of us had the nasty stomach bug during our trip. Easton first, then Avery, then Brett (on his birthday of all days) and Quinnlyn (and unfortunately my mom picked it up from us). I was the lucky one not to get it because I am a hand washing maniac!!

We ate at all my favorite 'St. George restaurants' that I have been missing so much: Cafe Rio, Taco Time, Marv's (for the fries and fry sauce), Wingers, and Pizza Factory. We didn't hit up In-n-Out so I am still craving it.

I bought a new wedding ring that was entirely out of our budget and I instantly regretted it but they wouldn't cancel my order since it is a 'custom ring'. UGH!!! I am still sick about spending so much money.

We visited with several great friends whom we haven't seen for way too long (unfortunately we weren't able to see everyone we wanted to, but that is what happens when you only have a short amount of time to do so many things)

I got to hang out with some of my sisters who I miss so much. Too bad we can't all be visiting at the same time because we missed Danielle (who lives in Hawaii) and Christie (who lives 2 hours south of Indianapolis)

We celebrated Brett's birthday with a Jones Family get together. He's 31....but still as smokin' hot as ever ;)

We had a boring New Years. Brett stayed awake and watched the ball drop on TV while the rest of us went to bed.

We enjoyed some amazing weather of about 60 to 65 degrees the whole trip!! It was amazing. There were bike rides, and trips to the park, and SUN!

I only took a handful of always.
Easton's cousin Burklee was nice enough to share her new trike....somehow I think she got the raw end of the deal :)
Playing with friends at the park
Visiting the brother. I know....he needs some decorations on his headstone.

Some of the Jones grandkids with G'ma Jones at the Christmas Eve party.

We had tons of fun and the drive was totally worth it!! Although I don't want to do it again for a very long time!!

You are one brave woman. I just wont commit to a drive back home. And did you lose your first wedding ring? I lost mine 6 months after we got married. Luckily my mom wanted to give me my GREAT Grandma's wedding ring. It fits me perfectly and I haven't taken it off in 4 1/2 years.
