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

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!

Little Gymnast

Now that we have a little bit of an income, we can finally afford to put the kids in some recreational activities. Quinnlyn and Avery were non-stop gymnasts this past summer, so we put them in Gymnastics in September.

Both girls were pretty good, but after 2 months, Avery decided she was done. I think she got bored of all the waiting that was involved with it. I hesitated letting her quit, but decided not to force her into something she wasn't enjoying. Plus I felt like it was a huge waste of money if she didn't even WANT to be there. Hopefully as she gets a bit older, she will stick with something a little longer.

Quinnlyn, however, loves it. She definitely has a natural ability and I just love watching her. Her favorite areas are the Beam and of course, the bars. Right now she is in just a recreational class one hour a week, with no competing. They get evaluated at the end of each month and have to master several skills before moving up to the competing class. She has a lot of activities that she wants to try---like dance, swimming, basketball, piano---so who knows if she will choose to stick with gymnastics but for the minute, we are having fun watching her learn knew things.

I took some funny 'in-action' pictures of her jumping on the beam with Brett's phone....and they aren't the greatest quality....but oh well.
